Even after receiving two doses of vaccine, you could contract Covid-19.
The chances of India's C vaccination campaign succeeding looked good when it began in mid-January. After only a few months, the initial hope has vanished, leaving the government's plans in bad shape.
Just 2% of India's 1.3 billion people have been completely vaccinated, immunization centers across the nation are running out of doses, and exports have nearly halted.
As India ramps up its Covid-19 vaccination campaign, there have been reports of people testing positive for the virus while receiving both vaccine doses.
These infections are referred to as "breakthrough" infections. After vaccination, you will experience side effects, which are common. It usually takes the body a few weeks after vaccination to develop protection against the virus that causes COVID-19.
You won't be completely vaccinated until two weeks after the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks after a one-dose vaccine.
Instances of "breakthrough" infections are very rare, and when they do occur, people experience less serious Covid-19 symptoms. Such events do not mean that anything is wrong with Covid-19 vaccines or how they are administered.
Even if you don't have symptoms, still research is on as to how well vaccinations protect from transmitting the virus that causes COVID-19. A study is also conducted on how long COVID-19 vaccines keep people safe.
Research has been going on about what proportion of people need to be vaccinated against COVID-19 until they're considered safe.
Given India's increasing critical interest, its wave of infections threatens not only Asia's third-largest economy's weak recovery but also global efforts to compress Covid-19 and recover.
Despite being home to the world's largest vaccine producer, the country has been the biggest hotspot of the pandemic. In simple terms, if one develops C after being completely vaccinated, it means that person has had a lower immune response from the vaccine.
However, most of these diseases are mild or curable. Breakthrough infections can occur with any vaccine. There's no need to be concerned.
The government will collect data on those who test positive for C+ even after being vaccinated for research & development.
