With the COVID-19 vaccine rollout, people have many questions. The question is not only how to get a vaccine, efficiency or safety of the vaccine. But, the people are concerned about the pandemic practices will change in daily life? Can you travel more freely or go through life without a mask and sanitizer? People are confused about the answers to these questions.

Science

The Pfizer and Moderna are the vaccines approved by the U.S. The vaccines work by introducing a new mRNA instruction manual in our body. The vaccine helps to improve the immune system and build defenses against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The SARS-Cov-2 virus is the virus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 Travel possibility after Covid-19 vaccinated

The COVID- 19 pandemic brought social distance and isolation. It has been months since people have met their families or friends face to face. People dream of going out to concerts, theme parks, sports arena, family gatherings, and so on. Can travel be safe if I’ve been vaccinated? But getting vaccinated does not mean you are free and you can travel the world. 

 Still, need to wear a mask after the COVID-19 vaccine?

 Of course, you need to wear a mask. Let’s think a face mask is your new best friend. You still need to wear a mask because the vaccine is not 100% protection. Currently, available vaccines offer only 95% protection only when you are fully immunized. There is still a 5% chance you can get COVID-19 at any time.

Since it’s unclear, how well the covid-19 vaccine reduces transmission. How long the immunity will last. The world is affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Wearing a mask and practicing social distance is still important for safety measures and to stop the further spread of COVID-19 

Researchers don’t know yet. How long the immunity was given by the current vaccines.  So, it’s better to stay safe and protected by wearing a mask.

When will things go back to normal?

The world is affected by the Covid-19 pandemic so it may be a while to get back into a normal lifestyle. Experts also predict the life before the pre-pandemic period won’t get back until reaching the critical point (herd immunity). 70% to 85% of the population need to be immune before reach to herd immunity. It sounds simple but there are several reasons that herd immunity will be difficult.

Possibility of transmission after Covid-19 Vaccine

Unfortunately, it’s not sure how well the covid-19 vaccine reduces transmission but Scientists are working on it. The Covid-19 vaccine is to reduce transmission and fight against infection. However, the vaccine does not completely stop entering into the body and reduce transmission.

Science

At the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, the main goal of Scientist is to develop a vaccine and prevent the infection. Fortunately, the developed vaccine worked. Now the scientist starts research on a secondary question like whether the vaccine reduces or prevents transmission of the Virus.
