Understanding Vaccines

Vaccines work by helping your body build natural immunity. They are made of whole viruses or bacteria, or parts of them. These active components, called antigens, trigger an immune response when in the body.

Vaccines work by introducing the antigen of the pathogen into the body and then triggering an immune response. The goal of it is the immune system will then recognize and combat that pathogen on its own.

The Benefits of Vaccines – to you and the community.

The COVID-19 vaccine is offered to pregnant women to help protect their unborn child from contracting COVID-19. This vaccine is also passed to newborns through breast milk, which will create immunity to the virus. However, children do not have the vaccine to protect them from COVID-19, so it’s essential to take precautions by avoiding travel to high case areas or exposure.

If you get the vaccine, your chance of getting the coronavirus is reduced. You can still get the virus after being vaccinated, but it is less likely because of something called herd immunity. This means that if more people get vaccinated, the virus will be less likely to spread in the community.

Role of Vaccines in Covid-19 Pandemic

COVID-19 vaccines are designed to keep you from getting infected with COVID-19, even if you already have the virus. COVID-19 vaccines also help protect people around you, especially people at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-1 COVID-19 vaccines are safe and don’t carry the same risks as the virus.

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine showed an efficacy of 57% when studied.

The vaccine is now available and has clear benefits. Consider getting vaccinated to protect yourself and your community.
