Vaccines are nontoxic and protect lives. The speedy development of COVID-19 vaccines has people asking questions. Here is a summary of the reactions and side effects, you can expect.
Coronavirus outbreak was started in Wuhan province of China and within a short period of time, it became a global health pandemic. Coronavirus spread in every country across the globe and caused millions of deaths.
When the pandemic was begun there was no vaccine available in the entire world to cure coronavirus infection but within a year of coronavirus outbreak, only a handful country are able to develop effective vaccines.
USA, India, Russia & UK are the countries who were able to develop and test the vaccine in record time since it is a global pandemic so every country for vaccine shots.
The vaccine becomes the primary need for every country to start their immunization program, today we will go through detailed explanation about vaccine immunization and its side effects.
What is vaccination?
Vaccination is a safe and effective way to protect people from any harmful infection or diseases before they come into contact with that infection. In this method, the body uses your immune system to build resistance against harmful germs or virus and make your immune system much stronger.
Vaccination or vaccine trains your immune system to produce antibodies against particular bacteria or virus which helps to keep you safe from getting infected. The vaccine contains killed or weakened form of bacteria or virus which trigger an immune response of your body.
A small number of bacteria or virus in the vaccine do not cause disease or infection it only trains the immune system although it does cause minor or moderate side effects. Most of the vaccines are usually given by injection.
How does the vaccine work in the body?
We already know vaccine use dead or weakened germ to build your immune system stronger so this make you less likely to get infected in future. Lets figure out how your immune system responds to the vaccine.
Once you are vaccinated, your body recognizes invading bacteria or virus and start producing antibodies to build resistance against invading germs. Antibodies are proteins which are produced naturally by the body to combat harmful germs.
After vaccination, your body remembers the disease and now your immune system is trained how to fight against a particular disease. If you come in contact with a similar type of bacteria or virus in future, your body quickly recognizes germ and quickly destroy it producing antibodies.
Therefore vaccination is a safe, effective and clever way to protect our bodies from dangerous infection. Our immune systems are naturally designed to remember, once your body gets one of the multiple shots of vaccine it can protect you from infection for years or even for a lifetime.
This process makes vaccine the most effective way to build immunity against harmful infections.
