01) What you can and can do after receiving your COVID-19 vaccine
What you can and cannot do after receiving your COVID-19 vaccine
Coronavirus vaccines have started worldwide. In India, more than 1 lakh people are vaccinated on day 1 and there are several stages planned to vaccinate adults, those with comorbidities, followed by young people.
Vaccination, at the moment, is a good way to protect the herd and will give us a measure of when things can get back to normal, even if they are small.

However, vaccination does not guarantee a complete end of the epidemic. The vaccines we use are still being tested, and there is no credible evidence to support their effectiveness. Many levels of vaccination and protection also depend on the number of people vaccinated, as well as the available doses.
Therefore, restarting a full pre-COVID life will not be so easy. Vaccines can make life easier, but there is still a long way to go before we can say goodbye to COVID.
Here is a list of activities you can do safely, and those you will not do after vaccination
03) You can’t throw away your mask right away
You can’t throw away your mask right away
Packing a mask can be one of the biggest mistakes to make now.
Vaccination, or helping, provides a measure of protection. Re-infection is possible which has not yet been released.
Vaccination doses do not only provide protection after 14-28 days (the time it takes for a strong immune system to grow in the body), vaccination for most people will take more than a year to fully develop. That means more people will still be at risk. We will never know who is in charge and who is not. There will also be people who will not take the vaccine. Therefore, applying a mask and following basic hygiene will still be the best way to keep COVID-19 and its associated diseases out of the way.
04) You can’t drink alcohol for 45 days
You cannot drink alcohol for 45 days
A vaccine can do its job only if there are strong and healthy antibodies to support it. For the same reason, experts have temporarily banned people from eating certain foods, including alcohol. According to experts, people should stop drinking alcohol for at least 45 days after vaccination.
Alcohol is believed to suppress the immune system and give a person the ability to not develop enough in the body after receiving a dose of the vaccine. It is also advertised for the management of Sputnik V in Russia.
05) You can start caring for people with COVID-19
You can start caring for people with COVID-19
One thing you can do after getting the full dose of vaccine is to start caring for those who may be suffering from COVID-19, safely. This is one of the reasons why guns are a priority for those in the health sector – health workers, doctors and key personnel.
While basic precautionary measures (such as wearing a mask and hand hygiene) will still need to be followed, with COVID vaccination records, you will have a higher chance of becoming infected through direct contact. This will also provide a sense of relief for those who live close to infected patients (such as family members).
06) You will still need to follow social media
You will still need to follow the social distance
A distance of six feet is a good way to prevent disease. Many researchers have shown that adequate social upheaval helps reduce the risk of infection, since the onset of the epidemic. Somehow, it will still have to be followed. As basic hygiene agreements, maintaining a safe distance will fight COVID-19 and other infections that come our way in the community.
07) Some locations will still be unavailable
Some locations will still be unavailable
Vaccination will not give people the opportunity to roam or gather in large numbers – at least initially. Until we reach the protection of the great flock, there will be a large number of those who may not be vaccinated and, therefore, can transmit the infection to others. Remember, the vaccine will only work to prevent the spread of the virus in the body, and not to reduce the risk of transmission.
Bars, nearby restaurants, and other high-risk areas can also be reduced for normal use. At the same time, large-scale vaccinations will allow for the opening of institutions such as schools, colleges and offices.
