How to Make an Informed Choice in the Face of the Pandemic

Person Taking COVID-19 Vaccine | Veteran Car DonationsThere is an emerging threat to the campaign to stop COVID-19 from spreading. It’s called vaccine hesitancy. 

According to a presentation made before the World Health Organization, vaccine hesitancy refers to the delay in the acceptance or the outright refusal by some people to receive vaccines despite the availability of vaccine services. 

Vaccine hesitancy varies in context depending on the time, place, and the types of vaccines to be administered. It is also fueled by complacency, convenience, and confidence. It is likewise exacerbated by myths and anecdotes about the experiences of some people who took the jab.

In the United States, there are still some who are hesitant to get their COVID-19 vaccines because of fear of their potential side effects, given that most of the vaccines being used today were fast-tracked to protect people from COVID-19 as quickly as possible.

 

What You Need to Know About COVID-19 Vaccines 

The reported side effects allegedly caused by some vaccines such as blood clotting and even the death of a few vaccinated individuals feed the hesitation of some people to get the shot. However, these reports should be tempered with information from credible and reliable sources.

Here are the undisputed facts about COVID-19 vaccines:

  1. Vaccines can protect you from COVID-19.

Vaccines will teach your immune system to fight the coronavirus if you are exposed to it. Based on studies, COVID-19 vaccines can protect you from severe infection and death. 

  1. Getting vaccinated can help protect your loved ones and your community.

When you get vaccinated, you protect not just yourself but also the members of your family and your community, some of whom may be suffering from chronic medical conditions and are more vulnerable to contracting COVID-19. 

  1. Getting vaccinated enables you to contribute to efforts for a return to normalcy.

When more people get vaccinated, this speeds up the process of opening up businesses, schools, sports facilities, and returning to a life when people did not have to wear masks and avoid mingling with each other. 

  1. COVID-19 vaccines went through stringent processes.

Pharmaceutical firms that were granted emergency use applications for COVID-19 vaccines went through the normal process of testing for safety and efficacy to ensure that they are safe to use. Testing for the vaccine used a diverse pool of clinical trial participants to ensure the vaccine’s safety across different backgrounds.
