Following to a coronavirus vaccine, you have waited for two weeks. Now, immune system is expected to protect you from the coronavirus. So, can you roam around the world without any fear now? One of the microbiologists working on coronavirus vaccine at the University Of Washington School Of Medicine has talked about transmission after the vaccination according to the science and the effect on the new variant.
Can vaccine prevent coronavirus completely?
Immune system of every person is different from other. If the vaccine is about 95% effective then it means that people may not fall sick. Despite the infection, people may not show any symptoms as the virus is eliminated by the immune system really quick. However, there are chances that 5% will indeed become sick. These people may have to be hospitalized also.
Can infection equal to transmission?
In reality, vaccine may not prevent the infection completely. However, it can certainly decrease the amount of viral load that may come out through nose and mouth after the vaccination. Process can be referred as shedding. It also means that time of shedding the virus has been shortened too. If a person releases lesser amount of virus from the body then chances of transmission may be less also.
Research has been conducted on the Israeli people that have been vaccinated already. On the occasion, 2897 people have been part of the research that has been checked for the signs of infection. Virus has not been detected in most of these people. However, some people have been infected by the virus. They have viral load one quarter than an infected person without the vaccine.
