Benefits of Getting a COVID-19 Vaccine
The vaccination will help keep you from getting COVID-19
- All COVID-19 vaccines currently available in Iraq under the COVAX FACILITY are highly effective at preventing COVID-19.
- Based on what we know about vaccines for other diseases and data from clinical trials, experts believe that getting a COVID-19 vaccine may also help keep you from getting seriously ill, even if you do get COVID-19.
- Getting vaccinated yourself may also protect people around you from COVID-19, particularly people at increased risk for severe illness like cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes, and obesity.
- Experts continue to conduct more studies about the effect of COVID-19 vaccination on the severity of illness from COVID-19 and its ability to keep people from spreading the virus that causes COVID-19.
COVID-19 vaccination is a safer way to help build protection.
- COVID-19 can have serious, life-threatening complications, and there is no way to know how COVID-19 will affect you. And if you get sick, you could spread the disease to friends, family, and others around you. Reduce chances of serious illness by getting vaccinated.
- All vaccines’ clinical trials must first show they are safe and effective before any vaccine can be authorized or approved for use, including COVID-19 vaccines. The known and potential benefits of a COVID-19 vaccine outweigh the known and potential risks of the vaccine.
- Getting COVID-19 may offer some natural protection, known as immunity. Current evidence suggests that reinfection with the virus that causes COVID-19 is uncommon in the 90 days after the initial infection. However, experts don’t know how long this protection lasts, and the risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19 far outweighs natural immunity benefits. COVID-19 vaccination will help protect you by creating an antibody (immune system) response without experiencing sickness.
- Both natural immunity and immunity produced by a vaccine are important parts of COVID-19 disease
COVID-19 vaccination will be an important tool to help stop the pandemic.
- Wearing masks and social distancing helps reduce your chance of being exposed to the virus or spreading it to others, but these measures are not
enough. Vaccines will work with your immune system, so it will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed.
- The combination of getting vaccinated and following COVID-19 prevention recommendations such as wearing masks and social distancing to protect yourself and others will offer the best protection from COVID-19.
- Stopping a pandemic requires using all the tools we have available such as masks, maintaining social distancing of at least one meter, and above all, getting vaccinated. Get your shot today.
