APC Next Level: Why you need the COVID-19 vaccine

Some countries around the globe have finally started to win the battle against the COVID-19 virus. One of the biggest factors to thank for this is the recent roll-out of the vaccines. Some of the hospitals are seeing significantly lesser critical covid-related cases by the day. 

However, some people still believe that getting vaccinated is a bad idea because it can cause side effects that can be bad for their health. If you’re one of those people, we here at APC Next Level have compiled some reasons why it’s important to get vaccinated.

It will help bring things back to normal

With the number of vaccinated people increasing day by day, it won’t be long before things go back to normal. One of the things that scientists and medical professionals want to achieve is herd immunity.

This occurs when the majority of the population is immune to the disease. What this does is that it provides indirect protection to those who are not yet immune to the disease. 

After the population has achieved this, you would start to see the cases decline and the world can start going back to normal. Be a part of making the world normal again by getting vaccinated! 

It is effective

If you haven’t heard yet, the vaccinations are effective. That means it can protect you from the virus which can prevent further spread to the population. Getting vaccinated is not just for yourself but for the people around you as well. 

Aside from lessening your chances of getting the virus, the vaccine will keep you from getting seriously ill if you do get infected. People who have recovered from COVID-19 have also seen a boost in protection after they have been vaccinated.

It is safe

One of the main reasons why people refuse to get vaccinated is because of safety reasons. Well, we’re here to tell you that getting vaccinated for the covid-19 is extremely safe. Mainly because these vaccines are developed using meticulous scientific research and processes. 

These vaccines were not rushed to be made and are not experimental in any way. These were developed by reliable and intelligent scientists worldwide and went through all the required stages of clinical trials. 

Through various monitoring and testing, scientists have made sure that the vaccines are effective and safe before rolling them out for the public. None of the vaccines available will make you sick. 

It lets you go back to doing more

Getting fully vaccinated gives you the perk of doing the activities that you used to do before the pandemic. This includes going to the gym, dining in a restaurant and several other things. 

You can even start doing these activities without wearing a mask or keeping a 6 feet distance unless required by the rules and regulations of the establishment or by the country’s law. 

Keep in mind that you will only be considered vaccinated 2 weeks after you have completed the required doses of the vaccines. Some vaccines require you to have 2 doses such as Pfizer and Moderna while Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen only requires one dose.
