Just recently in the United Kingdom, the government has announced that they will begin to use a vaccine that will help to fight the coronavirus. This is excellent news for everyone involved and it is something that we have been waiting for, for a very long time. Many families have lost loved ones like grandparents and parents, and even though everyone tried to follow the rules, the pandemic continued to rage on. Hopefully that will all be behind us by the middle of next year, because of this new vaccine, but distrust still remains from the British population, and it may prove to be difficult to get everyone to accept the injection. These worries are helping to put a large question mark over whether or not the vaccine roll out will be a success.
The government will very likely use medical Logistics from Rhenus High Tech to get the vaccines safely to hospitals all across the United Kingdom. This vaccine has to be stored at a certain temperature and so that requires specific storage capacity that only these companies can provide. For those of you who are still a little nervous about taking this new vaccine, let me try to answer any questions that you may have, by providing you with essential information that should help to put your mind at ease.
- The vaccine will not give you Covid-19 – The goal of the vaccine is to teach your immune system to react to covid-19 and to fight it off whenever it enters your body. It is true that there might be some symptoms experienced like a fever, but this will pass and it is quite a normal indication that your body is trying to build immunity. Just to give you a timeline, it usually takes a few weeks for your body to be able to build the correct immunity after you get your vaccination. It is helpful if you keep yourself fit, as this will help with providing your body with protection.
- You won’t test positive on a viral test – Once your body starts to develop some kind of immune response, which is why you took the vaccination in the first place, there is a distinct possibility that you might return a positive result on some particular antibody tests. These tests only indicate that you have had a previous infection and that you now have protection against the virus. If you would like to know more about the company who devised this vaccine, and how the British government intends to deliver it to the British public, then please have a look here.
Hopefully, this is the beginning of the end for the coronavirus, and by this time next year it will be a distant memory. It is important, however, while you are waiting for your turn to get the vaccine that you continue to protect yourself and wear a face mask. Please keep following the advice with regard to social distancing to protect you and your family.
