    How do vaccines protect you?

    Vaccines contain a weakened/dead form of the pathogen or a part of it.
    On vaccination, your immune system starts producing antibodies against that pathogen without making you sick
    Now your body recognizes the pathogen and can fight it off in the future. In short, you're immune now.
    Do not hesitate or harbor doubts about getting vaccinated. Make sure to get your family members and yourself vaccinated, if eligible.
    Even after vaccination, continue taking the basic precautions like physical distancing, wearing masks and maintaining hand hygiene.
    1. Continue following “Covid appropriate behavior”
    • Distance physically, but NOT ‘emotionally’: Maintaining physical distance (>6 feet) is crucial for slowing down the transmission of the virus. Keep in mind that social interactions feed human connections and ensure our mental well-being. So, greet loved ones without physical contact and stay connected with your friends and family through video conferencing.
    • Mask is your most essential weapon: Cover your nose and mouth snuggly with a mask when you’re in a public place, be it office, grocery store, park, restaurant, or in public transportation. Masks will not only protect you but will also protect the people around you who are vulnerable to the severe consequences of COVID-19.
    • Practice hand hygiene – the ‘pandemic mantra’: Follow hand hygiene as it protects against COVID-19 as well as against many other infections. Wash your hands frequently with water and soap (for 20 seconds), especially before eating food. In case water and soap are not available, clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
    1. Choose to stay indoors
    Avoid indulging in high-risk activities such as having meals with relatives & friends, attending large gatherings/parties, visiting crowded places, such as markets.
    1. Get tested on priority
    Testing, tracing, and treating are the 3Ts to curb this spread. If you have symptoms or think you may have come in contact with a COVID-positive person, then you must isolate yourself and get tested without delay. Let’s be a responsible human being.
    1. Stay positive; this too shall pass
    We need to learn to cope with the current outbreak's long-term consequences and keep up our emotional resilience and productivity. Accept the fact that by getting tested and isolating yourself, you will be preventing the spread of infection to many others.
