Dr Saheer Sainalabdeen, specialist respiratory medicine, Medeor Hospital, Dubai, pointed out: “During the trials of the currently available vaccines, tracking has been done pertaining to how many vaccinated people contract Covid-19 despite inoculation. How far they can prevent the spread of the virus is not yet clear.”
Therefore, to prevent the spread of infection remains to be the toughest part. Vaccination teaches the body how to successfully fight a virus without actually getting sick.
Medics averred that to effectively contain this pandemic, reducing exposure to the virus and supporting vaccination campaigns must continue.
“The majority of available vaccines have an efficacy of around 95 per cent to prevent symptomatic disease, but its effectiveness to prevent transmission even if it does will be something less than that. So till 70 per cent of the public builds up immunity, we have to wear masks and follow other precautions'', added Dr Sainalabdeen.
