No more restrictions, limits and concerns! Well, at least that’s what some of us think or secretly hope for. However, it turns out our case isn’t exactly like this. As the deadly Indian variant hits back In UK, people get confused.
As long as we survived for almost 1 and a half year after the COVID-19 pandemic, everything is possible. We obeyed the rules, stayed at home, went through home office and online education. Yet, we continued to grab life again, more than ever. Unfortunately, nothing can replace victims we’ve had so far, friends and families lost one way or another. Finally, the global efforts invented with the COVID-19 vaccines and aiming for a common goal remained essential. That’s how people got a step closer to destroying the previously unknown enemy. Next thing many Americans hoped for and prayed for so many times before, is now an inevitable truth.
It’s most amazing how the COVID-19 vaccine opportunities changed over the time.To get the jab is essential and it’s undoubtedly the best option for protection during COVID-19 pandemic. But though it's absolutely necessary, we should certainly stay informed, when making the big decision. One of the most discussed issues concerning our choice is mixing them one with another. As there are many approved COVID-19 vaccines and the access to them is often limited, scientists lay their eyes on switching between various combinations. Now the main focus is on Pfizer and AstraZeneca. Turns out they both go pretty well together, unlike their different structure. Still recent studies warn of more frequent side effects to emerge shortly after receiving the second dose. While people normally have side effects from each and every one vaccine, there shouldn't be a reason to worry. Nevertheless, the reports present data to take in mind and not take for granted.
Since the COVID-19 vaccines were authorized, global leaders aimed at getting vaccinated as much of the population as they could. Tempting as it may sound, herd immunity turned out to be a distant and hard to achieve goal. Though children tend to be rather asymptomatic than suffer from severe COVID-19 symptoms, there are many of them actually dying of MIS-C.
Going back to normal sounds really amazing, isn’t it? In fact, since the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic, statistics and numbers are all we hear every day. And while we used to adjust to the new normal, it looks like the old normal is coming back to us. Yet, it will be slow and it certainly is a process, which requires a lot of patience and a protective behavior.
