Given the nature of Covid-19 and the havoc it has created, the best way to fight the global pandemic is to get vaccinated. But, is the vaccine enough to win? Can we stop taking precautions, once we are done with our vaccination?
The answer is, NO. You cannot stop taking precautions once you get vaccinated. The COVID-19 vaccine may provide you with a protective layer against the virus, but you may still come in contact with the virus. Hence, you must still take precautions, that may keep everyone safe.
The second wave of the virus has not only taken a toll on the most vulnerable, but has also affected the health of the younger population. People now not only have to get vaccinated, but also continue using the same safety precautions.
With that, here are some things you must do even after getting vaccinated.
Continue wearing masks
Being vaccinated does not mean you cannot be the carrier of it. After getting vaccinated, a person may develop immunity, but in order to protect the people who haven’t gotten vaccinated, it is important to continue wearing masks.
Follow appropriate measures
Apart wearing a mask, maintain social distancing in crowded areas. This is a great way to keep yourself safe as there is no way to know whether a particular person is vaccinated or not.
Continue using sanitizers
It is important to continue using hand sanitizers, because sanitizers are not only helping us to curb this novel virus, but also helps us eliminate various other germs and diseases.
Be careful around unvaccinated people
A large section of the crowed is still not vaccinated, even though you are. So, it is important for you to be careful around people as they are still susceptible to the virus. Therefore, keep wearing a mask and do not touch people who are at an increased risk of contracting this serious disease.
Getting vaccinated is one way to fight this virus, but at the same time, we not only need to keep ourselves safe, but also the people around us safe.
