2020 has been a hard year because of Covid-19 as it changed everyone's lives. Throughout Covid-19 there have been 101 million cases with 56 million recoveries and 2.19 million deaths.
Since Covid-19 was announced as a pandemic, our scientists have been working to come up with a Covid-19 vaccine. Right now, there are over 50 Covid-19 vaccines. The most successful vaccine is the Pfizer vaccine which is being made by the UK. If the UK decides to hand out this vaccine, there is a complication of storing it, as it must be stored at a minimum of -70℃. That is why some countries are making their own vaccine so that it will reduce cost and distribution will be a lot more efficient. This vaccine is successful so far and needs to be taken twice within a duration of 28 days according to the report submitted by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Some are experiencing side-effects of the vaccine like feeling nausea, body ache and fever. As per WHO, side effects are a part of all vaccinations. The WHO has reiterated that if the vaccines don’t work on a particular group of people, we can still stop the spread of Covid-19 through Herd Immunity.
Even after being vaccinated we still need to follow precautions.
