The COVID-19 vaccine is finally here and in many countries, including India, the vaccination rollout is underway. But wait, the coronavirus pandemic is far from over. Health experts are warning people to adhere to COVID guidelines to stop the spread of the virus, even if you are vaccinated.

Health officials say that even after being vaccinated against COVID-19, you still need to take the usual pandemic precautions, at least for a while. This means avoiding crowds, continuing to wear a mask in public, staying away from people, and washing your hands frequently.

Experts say that being vaccinated against the SARS-CoV-2 virus does not mean we don’t wear masks or follow COVID guidelines. Hand washing, wearing masks and social distancing will remain the key to safety. In the short term, it will take some time for the vaccine to become more effective.

Why is hand washing always important?

– During the COVID period, one important thing was noticed: washing your hands is an effective tool to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus.

– Washing your hands with soap remains one of the best defenses against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

– Hand washing also helps prevent the spread of other infections.

According to experts, we need to wash our hands when touching objects such as the door button and handle, lift buttons, car steering, stair handrails, metro, public transport, vegetables, outside parcels and more. Doctors say we should definitely wash our hands if we blow our noses or after sneezing into our hands.

How can you spread the virus if you have been vaccinated?

All of the COVID-19 vaccines and vaccine candidates considered for use in the United States rely on pieces of genetic material or viral protein – nothing that could turn into an active SARS-CoV-2 virus, the virus that causes the disease. COVID-19.

The problem with the COVID-19 vaccine, experts say, is whether you could still have an asymptomatic infection despite the vaccination – without symptoms, but able to spread the virus.

Let’s say you have been vaccinated and you are experiencing SARS-CoV-2. You are much less likely to develop clear symptoms. But your immune system may not fully fight off the virus. This could allow certain viruses to survive and reproduce and be expelled from your nose or mouth by breathing, coughing or sneezing.
