What are vaccines for?
They serve to prepare the body's defenses (immune system) to defend itself against microorganisms (viruses, bacteria, protozoa) that can cause very serious diseases that cause serious damage and even death.
How are vaccines made?
Normally a small part of that microorganism (proteins) or that weakened microorganism (attenuated virus) or dead is introduced so that it recognizes that microorganism and begins to make specific defenses against that microorganism so that when it enters our body. We can fight him and don't hurt us.
How are the Covid19 vaccines made?
They are made of genetic material of the virus (mRNA) that is introduced into our body and this begins to make defenses to be prepared when the virus really infects us and that it does not harm us.
It is expected that in the next 2 months when a large part of the population is vaccinated, both the severity of the infection and the deaths will greatly decrease.
Is it advisable to get vaccinated against Covid19?
The Covid19 vaccine is incapable of producing the Covid19 disease on its own. And with the different studies and the experience that we have over time we can affirm that it is safe.
It is important that a large part of the population is vaccinated?
Yes very important. Viruses need to multiply to spread and need to infect people who are susceptible to getting the infection. If people are vaccinated, they cannot infect them and are eliminated. Thanks to the vaccination programs we have been able to eradicate smallpox, eliminate polio and rubella and measles are in the elimination phase.
