The uncertainty with which this coronavirus has paved its way into our lives has got us to doubt anything and everything. Same is the case with this nation wide vaccination that’s been the buzzword all around. Though we are sure the best of the professionals have put in their blood and sweat into accomplishing the task of coming up with a vaccine against this deadly disease, yet we have doubts. Since we need to be sure before taking this plunge, it is wise to get some questions answered. That’s what we got Dr. Abhishek Tandon to do for us, to which he very kindly agreed.
Dr. Abhishek Tandon is a Senior Resident in the Department of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine at All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Jodhpur.
When enough people in the community are vaccinated, it slows down the spread of disease. Achieving herd immunity is a long-term goal. It usually requires a large amount of the population to be vaccinated. We urge you to continue taking all the precautions, even after getting vaccinated till 70% of our population is vaccinated.
