Medical experts have recommended getting both doses of the COVID vaccine to prevent getting infected. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one can be considered “fully vaccinated” only after they take the second dose of the vaccine.
Lack of awareness on the Second dose of Covid vaccine:
The hesitation towards vaccination with the COVID-19 vaccine remains a problem worldwide. Lack of clinical trials for the vaccine, fear of vaccine side effects, and rumours of the presence of active viruses in vaccines are some leading obstacles that obstruct the success of the COVID-19 vaccine campaign.
Vaccine hesitancy is a major obstacle in the face of the COVID-19 vaccination programs. As the lockdown is not possible for some countries because it disrupts economic conditions, vaccination may be the way to limit the pandemic infection.
Due to poor knowledge between populations about types of vaccine, its dosing recommendations, and the poor commitment to hygiene practices, the national and international health organizations are organizing campaigns to increase the public awareness level about the COVID-19 vaccines.
The vaccination program campaigns include advertisements on social media and television to increase the population’s awareness of COVID-19 vaccines and show the importance of public vaccination to limit the spread of coronavirus infections.
Why is the second dose of the COVID vaccine so important?
According to AIIMS chief Dr Randeep Guleria, the first dose of the vaccine does not produce protective immunity but prepares the immune system to fight against COVID-19 infection.
It is the second dose that triggers the immune system to produce a large number of antibodies, resulting in cell-mediated immunity. It also stimulates the memory cells so that the body remembers this injection for the long term and helps produce antibodies quickly in case of reinfection.
Both doses of the vaccine are therefore essential to get maximum protection from COVID-19. Get Vaccinated for yourself, your family and the community around you.
