As the world nears its second anniversary, the COVID-19 virus is still at large in some countries. However, thanks to science and research, humankind is finally fighting back thanks to the roll-out of vaccines.
These vaccines serve as a shield against the lingering virus that the world is currently facing and here at DSKT, we can’t emphasize enough how important it is to get them. To give you a better idea of how important it is to get these shots, we have compiled some points on how it benefits not only your body but the entire planet! Keep on reading to find out more.
It fends off the virus
There’s no way to fight the virus regardless of how strong you think your immune system is. Several people make the mistake of being too overconfident with how strong their bodies are that they neglect the idea of getting vaccinated.
This can’t be farther from the truth as anyone can get hit with the virus even if you’re someone who takes good care of your health. Getting vaccinated is the only way you can fend off COVID-19 which is why health experts recommend everyone to get it.
It’s a matter of life and death
Getting vaccinated can be a matter of life and death for everyone and not getting it can increase the risk of you getting infected which can then lead to death. To ensure that you can stay alive and healthy during these trying times, it’s better to get the shot.
Moreover, there’s nothing to worry about the vaccines that have been released to the public. Whether it be Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, etc., all of them went through the required clinical trials before being distributed to the world.
It allows us to go back to our previous lifestyle
If you’re missing how things were back then, the best thing that you can do is get the shot. It’s the surest way civilization can go back to living normally again and the best part is that it’s free!
When the majority of the population get boosted with the vaccine, more and more establishments will be allowed to open and not long after, things can go back to the way they were. Sooner or later, going out without having to wear masks will be within reach. All you have to do to participate is to get vaccinated.
It protects unvaccinated people
As of the time of writing, not everyone can get vaccinated, namely kids and people who are allergic to some of the ingredients in the vaccine itself. However, they can get protected from the virus if the people that surround them have all received the shot. This is why it’s important to get vaccinated, especially if you’re living with someone who’s not advised to receive the vaccine such as infants and the elderly.
Moreover, when the majority of the population get boosted, we will achieve something called ‘herd immunity’. How this works is that the unvaccinated will be given protection by those who are boosted.
