Coronavirus Vaccines - Top 10 facts that you need to know before taking the shot
The COVID-19 vaccine will be a critical tool that, combined with effective testing and existing preventive measures, will help bring the pandemic under control. Experts around the world are working hard to accelerate the development and production of a safe and effective vaccine. Bemorepanda answers some important questions aboutthe vaccine.
UNICEF is committed to delivering COVID-19 vaccines to 92 countries through the COVAX Mechanism, a unique initiative to produce and centrally procure COVID-19 vaccines. It works with governments and manufacturers to make vaccines available to both wealthy and low-income countries. As part of the global distribution, doses of vaccines have been reserved for the Republic of Tajikistan, which will be delivered to the country in the near future. The first batch of vaccines will contain 732 thousand doses of the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine. Priority populations to be vaccinated first include health and social workers, citizens over 50 and people with chronic noncommunicable diseases.
At the same time, the threat to children from COVID-19 is enormous, and it goes far beyond the immediate physical consequences of the disease. Continued or reintroduced isolation measures seriously affect children's access to basic health services. As a result, declining coverage of routine health services and an impending recession threaten the health and future of an entire generation of children. Below are answers to some of the most common questions parents may have about a potential COVID-19 vaccine.
1. What types of COVID-19 vaccines are being developed? How will they proceed?
Scientists are developing many potential COVID-19 vaccines, all designed to teach the body's immune system to safely recognize and block the virus that causes COVID-19. The different types of vaccines include:
Inactivated or attenuated viral vaccines that use a type of virus that does not cause disease but still elicits an immune response
Protein vaccines, which are a protein or protein fragment of COVID-19 that safely induce an immune response
Viral vector vaccines that use a virus designed so that it cannot cause disease, but produces COVID-19 proteins for a safe viral response
RNA and DNA vaccines, a novel approach that provides "instructions" for cells to create a protein that safely induces an immune response
2. What benefit will getting the COVID-19 vaccine bring?
COVID-19 is easily transmitted and can lead to serious illness and death, even for young and healthy people.
COVID-19 vaccines will be approved for use in the Republic of Tajikistan only if large, rigorous and rigorous scientific research shows they can safely reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection.
Scientists are investigating whether people who receive the COVID-19 vaccine will be less likely to transmit the COVID-19 virus to others. If this is the case, then vaccination can be a powerful way not only to protect yourself, but society as a whole.
3. How do we know if COVID-19 vaccines are safe?
There are many stringent safeguards that can help keep COVID-19 vaccines safe. Like all vaccines, COVID-19 vaccines must go through a rigorous multi-step testing process, including research involving tens of thousands of people. These trials, which involve people at high risk of contracting COVID-19, are specifically designed to look for any common side effects or other safety concerns.
Once the results of clinical trials become available, a number of steps will need to be taken, including an efficacy and safety review to obtain regulatory approvals and public health policy before a vaccine can be introduced. Once the COVID-19 vaccine is introduced, it will be closely monitored at all times for any unexpected side effects.
4. Will COVID-19 vaccines provide long-term protection?
Initial results from some vaccine trials have shown very encouraging results. Research is ongoing to obtain more information on how long these vaccines will provide protection. However, it is encouraging that the available evidence suggests that most people who recover from COVID-19 develop an immune response that provides at least some protection against reinfection - although we are still studying how strong this protection is and for how long. she will last.
It is also not clear how many doses of COVID-19 vaccine will be needed. Early data from clinical trials indicate that some vaccines will require two doses.
5. Will vaccinations against other diseases help protect me from COVID-19?
There is currently no evidence that vaccines for other diseases will protect against COVID-19. However, scientists are studying whether some of them - such as the Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccine, used to prevent tuberculosis - will also be effective at protecting against COVID-19 or not. For now, however, no other vaccine is recommended to protect against COVID-19.
6. How quickly can COVID-19 vaccines cope with the pandemic?
We do not know how quickly COVID-19 vaccines could have tackled the pandemic. This will depend on many factors, such as the level of effectiveness of the vaccines, how quickly they are approved and manufactured, how many people get vaccinated, and continued compliance with measures such as physical distancing, hand washing and the use of masks.
7. When will COVID-19 vaccines be ready for distribution?
The Government of the Republic of Tajikistan is currently working to obtain the most suitable and safe vaccines against COVID-19 and will keep the public informed of any further changes.
Many potential COVID-19 vaccines are currently being studied to determine if they are safe and effective. Large studies of some of these vaccines have shown promising preliminary results and it is likely that additional studies will be announced soon.
Once a vaccine has proven to be safe and effective, it must be approved by the national regulatory authority / ministry of health before it can be introduced in a country.
8. Will there be enough COVID-19 vaccines for everyone? If not, who gets them first?
Initially, the supply of vaccines against COVID-19 to the country will be limited, that is, the vaccination process will be carried out in stages, taking into account high-risk groups. In accordance with the plan of the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan on the introduction of vaccines, the initial target groups will include:
Frontline healthcare workers (doctors, nurses, paramedics) - It is important to vaccinate frontline healthcare workers first, not only to protect them from disease, but so that they can continue to serve the masses and continue to fight the pandemic.
Elderly people aged 60 and over who are in a group with a high incidence rate.
People with concomitant diseases aged 20 and older (HIV, diabetes, tuberculosis, hypertension, chronic respiratory diseases, coronary heart disease, cancer).
Once enough doses have been received, the government will call for vaccination of all those who are eligible. In the short term, it is important that everyone - including those who are vaccinated - continue to follow all available measures to help stop the spread of COVID-19, such as physical distancing, use of masks, and hand washing with soap and water.
9. If I receive the COVID-19 vaccine, will I need to take other precautions such as physical distancing?
Yes. For now, we recommend that everyone - including those who have been vaccinated - continue to follow all available measures to help stop the spread of COVID-19, such as physical distancing, frequent hand washing with soap and the use of masks. Adhering to all of these measures in combination will provide the best possible protection against infection and spread of COVID-19. In the future, as more people are vaccinated, and as we learn more about the "real world" protection offered by COVID-19 vaccines, this recommendation may change.
10. How can I learn more about COVID-19 vaccines?
In order to make an informed choice and keep abreast of the latest developments, everyone must rely on reliable and authoritative sources of information, such as medical institutions and government health authorities. (Ministry of Health, RCIP, state television).
Ignore rumors and misinformation spread on various social networks and other unreliable sources.
The Government of Tajikistan is working with other stakeholders to obtain the most appropriate vaccines for COVID-19 and will keep you informed of any further developments.
Russia is the first country in the world to register a Covid-19 vaccine, President Vladimir Putin announced on Tuesday, although the vaccine has not been mass-tested on humans and there is little public information about its effectiveness.
On Tuesday's government meeting, however, Putin said the vaccine had been shown to be effective in initial tests and provided long-term immunity.
International and Russian experts reacted with skepticism to the decision of the Moscow authorities to approve the use of a vaccine without it having passed the so-called third phase of testing, consisting of tests on thousands of people. Moreover, the fact that the vaccine was registered in Russia does not mean that it is internationally approved.
After this news, the internet exploded with funny memes about the first Russian coronavirus vaccine.

What can you do after you are fully vaccinated? Top qustioned people are asking on google with answers
Vaccines work by mimicking infectious agents - viruses, bacteria or other microorganisms that can cause a disease. This "teaches" the immune system to respond quickly and effectively to it. Traditionally, vaccines do this by introducing a minimum dose of an infectious agent that allows our immune system to build a memory about it. In this way, our immune system can recognize it and fight it quickly before we get sick. This is how some variants of COVID-19 vaccines are designed.
Other potential vaccines developed use new approaches: so-called RNA and DNA vaccines. Instead of introducing antigens (a substance that causes the immune system to produce antibodies), RNA and DNA vaccines give our body the genetic code it needs to allow our immune system to produce the antigen itself. For more information on the development of COVID-19 vaccine, please visit WHO and CEPI.
Massive global demand will mean that not everyone will be able to receive the vaccine at the same time. It will take months - or even years - to create enough doses of vaccine for people around the world.
Priority in the distribution of vaccines is represented by health and social workers, such as schools. The following doses of vaccine will be distributed to participating countries for vaccination to groups at high risk of developing complications from the disease, or even death, including the elderly and those with latent medical conditions. The number of doses for each stage will vary by country - we recommend that you follow the latest updates and guidance from your country's Ministry of Health.
Bemorepanda collected top 5 questions about the covid vaccine.
1.What can you do after you are fully vaccinated?
- You can gather inside with fully vaccinated people without a mask.
- You may gather indoors with unvaccinated people from another household (for example, visiting relatives who live together) without masks, unless one of these people, or someone living with them, is at increased risk of serious COVID disease. -19.
- If you've been around someone with COVID-19, you shouldn't stay away from others or get tested unless you have symptoms.
- However, if you live in a group environment (such as a correctional facility, isolation ward, or group home) and are around someone who has COVID-19, you should stay away from others for a long time, 14 days and test yourself, even if you have no symptoms.
- However, you must take steps to protect yourself and others in many situations, such as wearing a mask, standing at least 6 meters away from others, and avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated areas.
Observe these precautions if you:
- In public
- Meetings with unvaccinated people from several other households.
- Visiting an unvaccinated person who is at increased risk of severe illness or death from COVID-19, or who lives with a high-risk person
- However, you should avoid medium to large gatherings.
- You should still postpone domestic and international travel. If you are traveling, you will still need to comply with CDC requirements and guidelines.
- However, you should pay attention to the symptoms of COVID-19, especially if you have been around the sick person. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should check yourself and stay at home and away from others.
- You will still need to follow instructions at work.
2.When are you fully vaccinated against Covid?
Completely vaccinated are:
- 2 weeks after their second dose in a series of 2 doses, such as Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or
- 2 weeks after a single dose of vaccine, such as Johnson and Johnson Janssen vaccines
If less than 2 weeks have passed since the vaccination or if you need a second dose, you are NOT completely protected. Continue to take all preventive measures until you are completely vaccinated.
3.How many people are vaccinated?
This is counted as a single dose, and may not equal the total number of people vaccinated, depending on the specific dose regime (e.g. people receive multiple
4.Do you have to quarantine if you are fully vaccinated?
Fully vaccinated people with no COVID-like symptoms do not need to quarantine or be tested following an exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, as their risk of infection is low.
5.If you are fully vaccinated, can you transmit Covid?
Vaccinated people could potentially still get COVID-19 and spread it to others. However, the benefits of relaxing some measures such as quarantine requirements and reducing social isolation may outweigh the residual risk of fully vaccinated people becoming ill with COVID-19 or transmitting the virus to others.
COVID-19 has stopped many people's businesses by quarantining many parts of the world. In addition to losses due to business interruptions, businessmen cannot pay rent and pay salaries to their employees, because they have nothing. A leather goods store recently opened its doors for the first time in two months since the introduction of a nationwide quarantine, and what the owner saw did not make him happy.
As if the quarantine was not enough blow to the business, the owner of this store in Malaysia opened his doors 2 months later and found a sad surprise.
A Facebook user named Nex Nezeum recently shared several photos of various leather goods covered in insane amounts of mold.
Shoes, bags, wallets, belts, and even furniture and floor coverings were moldy - a truly depressing sight for a store owner.
Back in March, Malaysia decided to introduce quarantine in its country in response to the COVID-19 pandemic
Minor businesses like Nex's store have been closed until further notice.
But on May 10 - 53 days after the start of quarantine - the country relaxed quarantine conditions and allowed some businesses to reopen their doors.
When Nex entered his store, he saw that everything from shoes and bags to furniture and flooring was covered with mildew colonies.
The owner of the store is still in shock and does not comment on this incident.
But people on the Internet suggested that this could be due to the fact that the ventilation stopped working, which was turned off while the store was not working.
The only plus in this situation is that Nex's photos went viral, collecting over 11,000 likes in just a day, and were circulated in various media.
Of course, the store owner is not in the mood for jokes, but netizens were humorous, saying that this is a good way to find out if it is real leather or fake.
A little later, Nex posted a few more photos, which show that the cinema is also captured by mold.
The coronavirus pandemic affected almost all the countries around the world, led to the closure of borders, the suspension of production and the cancellation of mass events. But when will it end? There is no exact answer to this question yet. However, in this article we will talk about three possible scenarios.
Control and isolation
Duration: from 3 months and more
It is believed that the pandemic can be stopped by controlling the virus. For this, it will be necessary to identify and isolate patients who are infected so that the disease can not spread. This idea seems logical: an outbreak of SARS in 2003, also caused by a member of the coronavirus family, ended with the isolation of patients.
The main problem with this strategy is that, due to difficulties with the diagnosis of the virus, there is no accurate data on the number of cases. Statistics simply do not take into account those cases when the disease is mild or asymptomatic. This means that many people can be infected, but are not aware those, risking to infect others.
At the same time, experts from China report that the epidemic can be stopped by the summer if all countries take serious quarantine measures. In Hubei Province, the epicenter of the outbreak, the peak of the coronavirus has already passed, and now authorities have lifted restrictions and opened access to the city of Wuhan. However, there are doubts about whether China is now capable of controlling the outbreak of coronavirus and whether this measure is conducive to continued spread of the virus. Now the hospitals in Wuhan have stopped testing patients and are not recording cases of asymptomatic virus in the human body, which means that there are still many infected people in the city and the epidemic may continue, but perhaps not at such a fast pace.
Duration: 18 months and more
The vaccine is the first way to fight COVID-19. If most people are vaccinated, the pandemic should stop to develop. Tests will be completed in July, and after about 11 months, the vaccine should be finally ready. And in the United States last week, the first person already received an experimental vaccine. This happened after the researchers were allowed to skip the rule of animal testing - primarily because of the crisis. But even if these initial tests succeed, it will still take up to 18 months for any potential vaccine to be available to most people.
The duration of the pandemic will also be affected by how effectively states can fight the virus before the vaccine appears on the market. To do this, they need to slow down its spread (for example, by full or partial quarantine, which we talked about above) and prepare hospitals for a large number of patients by increasing the number of places and mechanical ventilation devices.
Duration: from 24 months and more
Finally, the least option: you are likely to get the coronavirus, but it will help to overcome the pandemic. If the virus continues to spread, then in the end many people will be infected and (if they survive) will become immune to it. In this case, the virus will disappear on its own, but it is not known how many people will suffer in such a scenario. This phenomenon is known as collective immunity. Great Britain initially chose the strategy of forming collective immunity, but then abandoned it, believing that this would lead to high hospitalization rates and the need for emergency medical care for a large number of people at the same time.
To summarize, to combat COVID-19, according to various estimates, it will take from 3 to 24 months.
Employees all over the world are losing their jobs due to coronavirus.
Life on the planet freezes: billions of people are forced to hide in their homes. For many, this means a loss of income, and no one has canceled expenses: bills, rent, hunger and loans are not quarantined. The impending crisis threatens the world with a surge in poverty.
The authorities of all countries thought about how to avoid this. Some support banks and businesses: Great Britain, for example, promises them loans under state guarantees. Others are people who have lost their jobs, or the entire population at once. The United States pledges $ 1,000 to each American, Hong Kong has already allocated $ 1,300 to 7 million residents.
Each government strives to write out its own prescription, but few have managed to move from discussions and promises to the distribution of subsidies.
