We lost our chief of pathology, Dr Joey Avila, in MMC to COVID. He had received his 2nd Sinovac, then got COVID within about a week of his 2nd dose.
Reasons for people getting infected even after taking two doses of the corona vaccine:
▪️ The second dose is to be taken 21/28 days after the first dose of the corona vaccine.
▪️ The vaccine starts to form antibodies immediately after entering the body.
▪️ When antibodies are forming in our body, our immunity decreases a lot.
▪️ When we take the second dose of the vaccine after the 21/28 days, our immunity decreases even more.
▪️ 14 days after the second dose, when the antibodies are completely formed in our body, our immunity starts to grow rapidly.
▪️ During this one and a half month, due to low immunity, the chances of the corona virus entering our body are very high. It is due to an exposure to the virus at this vulnerable time that a person gets infected.Hence, it is very risky to get out of the house during this month and a half.
▪️ Even after taking two doses of the vaccine, you can become a victim of Corona.
▪️ After one and a half months, the immunity in the body rises by 100 to 200 times, after which you are safe.
▪️ Need to be careful and safe for one and a half months from the first dose.
▪️ Make sure to wear a mask
▪️ Get out of the house only if necessary.
