Covid Vaccine: People who have had both doses of the Kovid-19 vaccine are 50 percent less likely to have long covid (side effects on the body for a long time after corona) than people who do not get the vaccine. This has been said in a study published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases journal. This study has been done by King’s College, London. Also, the chances of getting re-infection in people who have been vaccinated are also very less.
According to Dr. Claire Steves of King’s College, “The possibility of re-infection has been there since the beginning. It could not be denied that these vaccines are working exactly for the purpose for which they were prepared. That is, saving lives and protecting people from falling seriously ill.” He also said, “Our study shows how effective the vaccine is in the prevention of Kovid-19 infection.”
Study done on more than 12 lakh adult people
More than 12 lakh adult people were included in this study. These people were given at least one dose of Pfizer-BioNTech, Oxford-AstraZeneca or Moderna vaccine from December 2020 to July 2021. According to the study, less than 0.5 percent of these people have come back to Kovid infection more than 14 days after the first dose of the vaccine.
In this study, less than 0.2 percent of the people who had been given both doses of the vaccine, more than seven days after the second dose of the vaccine, Kovid infection has come back. At the same time, according to the study, 63 percent of these cases of re-infection after the first dose are asymptomatic. At the same time, if there is a re-infection after the second dose, then 94 percent of these cases do not cause any symptoms.
People over 60 years of age are most likely to have a re-infection among people who have had the first dose. Also, it includes adults who are already suffering from obesity, heart disease, kidney or lung disease.
