Vaccination for COVID-19 is the best hope for reducing cases of transmission of the corona virus. However, it turns out that there are still many ordinary people who question the benefits of the COVID-19 vaccine, how it works, and the side effects it causes. So, how does the COVID-19 vaccine work?
The COVID-19 vaccine is able to prevent a person from contracting the corona virus. Or, if you contract COVID-19, vaccines can prevent your body from becoming seriously ill or the potential for serious complications. By getting a vaccine, you will also help protect the people around you from the corona virus. Here are some important facts about the COVID-19 vaccine:
The COVID-19 vaccine currently being developed does not contain the live virus that causes COVID-19. This means that the COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you infected with COVID-19. Although in a few cases it sometimes causes symptoms such as low-grade fever, this is normal because it is a sign that the body is building protection against the virus that causes COVID-19.
Not a few Indonesians have doubts about the safety and halalness of the COVID-19 vaccine. Even though it needs to be known, the vaccines used in Indonesia have already passed clinical trials and evaluations from the BPOM.
The content contained in the COVID-19 vaccine made by Sinovac also contains an inactivated virus, not a live or weakened virus. This vaccine also does not contain borax, formalin, mercury, and preservatives.
The Fatwa Commission of the Indonesian Ulema Council has also issued a fatwa regarding the halalness of the COVID-19 vaccine made by Sinovac. In the MUI Fatwa Number: 02/2021, MUI stated that the COVID-19 vaccines from Sinovac and Bio Farma are sacred and halal, and can be used by Muslims as long as their safety is guaranteed according to a credible and competent expert.
There are rumors circulating that COVID-19 vaccination can interfere with fertility or fertility. In response to this, WHO Director of Vaccines Immunization and Biology, Dr Kate O'Brien confirmed that the information is not true and is just a myth!
The Association of Internal Medicine Specialists (PAPDI) issued its latest recommendation on February 9, 2021. One of its points is that COVID-19 survivors can still be vaccinated after at least 3 months of recovery. The goal is to prevent future COVID-19 attacks.
Those are some important facts about the COVID-19 vaccine. Keep in mind, vaccines are a preventive measure, not a cure. So, even though you have received or will receive the COVID-19 vaccine, you still have to apply the COVID-19 prevention protocol.
