    • It is just a protective barrier . Taking vaccine doesn’t mean that you will be 100% immune from the virus . Keeping up the mask and using hand sanitizer as in rules will be the same . You might suffer a fever , rash , pain at the site of injection for 1-2 days and it will be gone. Again “ Prevention is Cure “ . For vaccination , the severity of the disease is less .

  4. Is it right for the TB patient with current medication to go for Covid vaccination(i am on my 11 th day of 6 months medication)

  5. In most of the cases people are safe from covid-19 infection after even the very first dose and in case if catches the infection then it will no progress to serious stages like needing oxyzen or ventilator but cases of people dying after vaccination is not necessarily mean dying from the covid 19 itself but from the pre existing medical conditions as vaccine does not protects one from other ailments and if one is serious form pre existing medical conditions then like any other Iinfection like that of Flu, malaria or for that matter inflammation or fever from other cause can becomes the aggravating agent not the causing serious problems including deaths.

  11. I got the first and second doses of Covisheild, in the first round, I had fever and pain for 24 hours only, in the second dose, i had only pain in the injection site for few hours. I recommend to take the vaccine, there is no major risk to be concerned about.

  12. Based on the above inputs, it shows that Covaxin has better effectiveness than Covishield. But majority of the hospitals have only Covishield vaccine. When Covaxin has better effect, why cannot the manufacturer produce Covaxin only. Unfortunately, the better vaccine supply is lesser than the other one… Or at least, Covishield vaccine can be improved to get the 100% effectiveness.

    Can the person who has the Blood pressure on little higher side and under medication take any vaccine like Covidshield or Covaxin?

  14. Vaccine certificate / acknowledgement is given for every person who takes the shot in Govt and private hospitals or only in private hospitals it is given? How do we make out the dose is original or duplicate ? Because, recently seen in news that the duplicate Remidisivir injections were produced and sold.

    Reply
  15. Joyce one bottle is 10 doses. You will register in App and You will get Certificate after vaccinated. Don’t be too smart in detecting duplicate, no one knows which is original or duplicate trust doctors and get vaccinated. Its free so people have no intension of earning any money

  28. Vaccine does not guarantee that you cannot be corona positive , vaccine provides shield to your body like bullet proof jacket. So by taking vaccine you will have very mild syptoms or no syptoms and it will reduce the lung infection and death will be reduced.

    Mostly it is seen that people vaccinated who are dying after first vaccine it is due to heart attack its because after taking vaccine clotting take place which is usual for every vaccines , but cases of deaths are minimal. For heart patient it is advised to consult doctor before taking vaccine.

    Mostly till now people who got vaccinated are given covishield and it is clearly seen that fever , little body pain is there . Please donot panic its good sign of good vaccine.

    During the referred period my son was down Covid 19 (April) followed by my daughter in law in 2nd week of May. However, we are not affected, which could mean Covi Shield protected us.

  60. Both the vaccines are good. Whatever you are getting you must go for it, don’t wait. This is the need of the hour. It’s obvious of getting fever or other mild symptoms after 10-12 hours of vaccination as it triggers your immune system but it’s goes away in 24-48 hours. You can take paracetamol to reduce the symptoms but for other medicine one must consult your physician.

  61. I would go for swadeshi Covaxin, as safe and hope enough research comes for advanced ones in future. Some problems happened in extra cautious UK for covishield where it was first made..

    My friends took COVISHIELD and these are the side effects (Heavy fever for 1-2 days, Heavy Joint Pains for 1-2 days, Moderate Pain at injection site).

  79. Covishield is better than covaxin. After 2 weeks the first dose of covishield, you will get 70 % protection, whereas no protection is there in covaxin after the first dose. After second dose, the efficacy of covishield is 90% and the efficacy of covaxin is maximum 78%. That is why covishield is much more produced whereas very few covaxin is produced.
