By Isha Kukde +2 more

The development of the COVID-19 vaccine has been one of the most awaited news since the onset of the unprecedented pandemic era. The Indian Ministry of Health Family and Welfare (MoHFW) announced the third phase of the COVID vaccination drive from 1st May 2021, wherein all adults above the age of 18 years can take the COVID-19 vaccine.

Q2. Can patients suffering from Hepatitis B take the vaccine?

After being vaccinated, some side effects are normal and expected. Side effects are a sign that your body is building immune protection. Common side effects observed with COVID-19 vaccines include: Some pain, swelling and redness on the arm where you received the vaccine.

Q4. What are the common side effects after taking the vaccine?

Common side effects like pain at the site of injection, slight fever, chills and fatigue are mild and temporary and get resolved over a short span of time.

Dr. Ashish Bajaj – M.B.B.S, M.D.

Q5. Can I still take the vaccine if I am down with a cold or fever?

You should avoid taking the vaccine until you have fully recovered from the fever.

Q6. What happens if I get COVID after the first dose of the vaccine?

You will have to quarantine yourself and commence treatment and after you have recovered, you have to wait for 3 months for the second dose from the day of complete recovery. 

Q7. Can cardiac patients take the vaccine?

Since most cardiac patients are on regular blood-thinning medication, they should always consult a cardiologist before taking the vaccine.

Q8. After how many days can I expect to develop immunity against COVID-19?

You can expect to develop the required antibodies for fighting COVID-19 after 2-3 weeks of taking the second dose of the vaccine.

Conclusion

With the widespread reach of fake news and myths in the current age of social media, the COVID-19 vaccines have received their fair share of antagonisms. The vaccines are safe and effective for all people above the age of 18 years.
