Most Americans are worried since the U.S. Centre for disease control and prevention decided to lift the restrictions of COVID 19.
Recently U.S. Centre for Disease Control and Prevention on May 13, announced that people who are completely vaccinated can remove their masks and can have indoor and outdoor gatherings without social distancing.
But still two-thirds of American’s are yet to be vaccinated completely. Many people who have cancer or compromised immunity are not eligible for getting the COVID shots. for children from age 12 to 15 years, the COVID shots have begun recently.
But with the restrictions being lifted, those who are not yet vaccinated are worried that they may catch COVID from those who are already vaccinated.
Luckily, the vaccine has shown way better results than expected. If we see the example of Israel, over 6.5 million people have been vaccinated as of now.
Everyone over the age of 16 was vaccinated with Pfizer–BioNTech mRNA COVID-19. And the vaccine showed to be 95% effective after complete vaccination.
With the vaccination drive, around 4.7 million people were vaccinated which eventually reduced cases by 30%.
In the same way, only 0.05% of health care workers were tested positive after complete vaccination.
When scientists make a vaccine, they specially take care of the thing known as “sterilizing immunity.” This means the vaccines can block the microorganisms even from entering the body.
So, it proves that after complete vaccination, a person can neither acquire the infection nor shed microorganisms. But yes, this is not always true. An immunized person Still catches the germ.
Scientists are still figuring out that how long does passive immunity last. They are doing further researches on neutralizing antibodies. It is believed that neutralizing antibodies not only attach to the virus but will also prevent it from causing infection.
So, CDC says that vaccines prevent the completed vaccinated persons from serious infections but the interaction of vaccinated and non vaccinated people is still a dilemma.
