Why you will still need to wear a mask even after getting a Covid-19 vaccine…

By Dr Vishal Rao

BENGALURU:

The clinical trials based on which most (if not all) of the Covid-19 vaccines are approved for emergency use provide sufficient evidence of the vaccines’ ability to prevent the Covid-19 disease, but not transmission.

What does this mean? Say you receive the vaccine and are exposed to someone shedding SARS-CoV-2. You will get infected by the virus, but the antibodies developed due to vaccination will prevent you from getting moderate-to-severe Covid-19.
