The more vaccinations, the sooner will we have herd immunity
By Dr CN Manjunath
Taking a vaccine is the only way we can end this dreadful pandemic.
I took it today (Thursday), and I am fine. Healthcare workers should volunteer for vaccination without fear or apprehension, since it is safe and there are no major adverse events.
Just mild pain
Mild fever, injection site pain and bodyache are not side effects but only the temporary effect of the vaccine.
With more people taking the vaccine, more people will follow suit. This will boost public confidence in the vaccination process so that we can achieve herd immunity on expected lines.
Our civic duty
In fact, taking the vaccine is our civic responsibility.
