1. What are COVID – 19 vaccines?
COVID – 19 vaccines are biological products which have been developed to provide acquired immunity against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
2. What types of COVID-19 vaccines are being developed? How do they work?
Scientists around the world are developing many potential vaccines for COVID-19. These vaccines are all designed to teach the body’s immune system to safely recognize and block the virus that causes COVID-19.
Several different types of potential vaccines for COVID-19 are in development, including
** Inactivated or weakened virus vaccines – which use a form of the virus that has been inactivated or weakened so it doesn’t cause disease, but still generates an immune response.
** Protein-based vaccines – which use harmless fragments of proteins or protein shells that mimic the COVID-19 virus to safely generate an immune response.
** Viral vector vaccines – which use a safe virus that cannot cause disease but serves as a platform to produce coronavirus proteins to generate an immune response.
** RNA and DNA vaccines – a cutting-edge approach that uses genetically engineered RNA or DNA to generate a protein that itself safely prompts an immune response.
3. What are the benefits of getting vaccinated?
The COVID-19 vaccines produce protection against the disease, as a result of developing an immune response to the SARS-Cov-2 virus. Developing immunity through vaccination means there is a reduced risk of developing the illness and its consequences.
This immunity helps you fight the virus if exposed. Getting vaccinated may also protect people around you, because if you are protected from getting infected and from disease, you are less likely to infect someone else.
This is particularly important to protect people at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19, such as healthcare providers, older or elderly adults, and people with other medical conditions.
4. Should one be vaccinated if contracting COVID – 19?
Even if you have already had COVID-19, you should be vaccinated when it is offered to you. The protection that someone gains from having COVID-19 will vary from person to person, and we also don’t know how long natural immunity might last.
5. What is vaccine efficacy?
Is the percentage reduction of disease in a vaccinated group of people compared to an unvaccinated group, using the most favorable conditions. It is best measured using double-blind, randomized, controlled clinical trials
Vaccine effectiveness differs from vaccine efficacy in that vaccine effectiveness shows how well a vaccine works when they are always used and in a bigger population whereas vaccine efficacy shows how well a vaccine works in certain, often controlled, conditions. Vaccine efficacy studies are used to measure several possible outcomes such as disease attack rates, hospitalizations, medical visits and costs.
