WHAT IS A VACCINE?
Vaccine uses a part of the germ and after insertion into the body,
Vaccines prevent us from severe illness, from death
WHY IS THIS VACCINE SO DIFFERENT FROM THE PAST?
Vaccines in the past prevent example Delhur. For example in polio, some persons still got polio and the drops have changed over time.
WHY IS THERE AN URGENCY. IS THERE POPULATION CONTROL
Vaccines have nothing to reduce population or prevent reporoduction so far
IS IT SAFE TO TAKE VACCINE WITH SINUSITIS, ASHTHMA?
WHITE: Sinusitis is a common condition. Its safe with someone with sinusitis. Someone with Asthma is at risk, so they benefit from the vaccine.
CAN PERSONS WITH AUTO IMMUNE DISEASE, OR WITH
WHYTE: A person with auto immnune is the cells which sohlud protect them from the disease starts to attack the persons normal human cells, so it weakens the system and renders them vulnerable to disease.
Their immune system is compromised.
In such cases there are other methods to assist such persons. Depending on the case that presents itself. Persons with diseases like cancer that dihibinates response to cancer, such persons are immuno compromised although they may not have
It may be possible to have these persons be subject to protective techniques.
In mild cases you may use techniques to ensure that immunisation they have can collate antibodies.
Assessed on a case by case basis. If you have auto immune condition but are stable and taking medication. Persons on therapy must for example take
Need to know medication you are on and in general medication predispose you to diabetes. So ur response will be a little less if you don’t have those responses. If you are immuno compromised or as opposed to immuno . Then your situation may be worse so your vaccine must be taken under certain conditions
CAN CHRONIC URTICIARN PATIENTS
Chronic urticiarn take the vaccine
Nothing to say vaccine would be harmful. If on medication that can depress medication. So they will respond differently. If not on treatment or steroid which suppreses immune system then they
Any of the three youd recommend
No advantage of one over the other. Johnson and Johnson is a one shot
CEASEARN DELIVERY IN SEPTEMBER
Evidence today will suggest that in fact if mom has a normal pregnancy with no immuno compromised condition she can take it
Melody Ennis say.. Advantage
When mother takes vaccine, the mother builds up antibodies to attack the organism that is there to harm her. The antiobodies can crosses to go into cavity where child is and protect the child so child gets anti maternal to protect her up to a year
IS THERE A VACCINE FOR BREASTFEEDING MOTHERS?
MELODY ENNIS: All vaccines can be given to breastfeeding mother. They don’t cross over into placenta or membrane. Vaccinated moms will result in antibodies crossing over into breastmilk
WHY NOW WE NEED BOOSTER SHOTS – WILL IT BE ONE EVERY YEAR? IS RESEARCH COMPLETE FOR EXAMPLE J&J?
HOW LONG THEY LAST?
WHITE: Amount of antibodies they illicit. CVaccines are supposed to trigger antibodies that last for a certain time. Also other things such as immune cells are doing. Antibodies are not end all in terms of protection from vaccines. In 6 to 8 months protection that starts to wane. We are still observing to test durability.
There are indications that other viruses loom and novel corona is endemic always with us. So in future persons infected will not lead to overrun of hospitals. We do not know yet if its every 2 years because weve not had vaccination that long. So in Israel and USA they realised that for over 60 years tey need to give a booster shot after 5 months. Persons with weakened immune system need booster shots though as their bodies would not have mounted a strong response.
HOW EFECTIVE AGAINST DELTA
Change was really to show how . Its more contagious. Vaccines were designed to prevent hospitalisation and death. No better one for Delta. All are approved and offer up to 100 effectiveness. They are all a plus. Efficacy of a chance of getting the disease. But with
WHICH ONES GIVE
Pfizer is 99 per cent, JJ 93 and Astra 91 per cent when given 8 months apart
WHAT IF BRAND IS NOT AVAILABLE
Every vaccine that has been passed to be used to be used to prevent a particular disease. Majority of vaccines are evaluated six months to a year up to a five year period. Have to look at it over 2 years. At present a particular one has higher percentage of reducing disease infection. We are not yet at the stage to say which is best. All are efficacious. So don’t wait for that one you don’t have. A bird in the hand is better than a thousand in the bush.
WILL THERE BE ENOUGH DOSES FOR A SECOND DOSE OF PFIZER?
ARE THERE ENOUGH ASTRAZENECA AT THE SITES?
Astra are at fixed sites
IS IT ADVISABLE WITHOUT KNOWING IF YOU ARE COVID POSITIVE?
There is a challenge to test everyone. We are not aware of any adverse effects. You tend to get a better boosted response if you have had infection and then get vaccinated
HOW CAN YOU CAN GET PFIZER AND THEN TESTED POSITIVE
No need to test over. Get an oximeter and ensure your oxygen level doesn’t drop below 95per cent.
Hypertension and diabetes
Do the necessary routine tests
Within 6 to 8 hours after the vaccine and last up to 72 hours. There is no evidence that vaccines kill or cripple you. Tenderness, pain at injection site, chills, tiredness, muscle pain, lump at injection site, sore throat, vomiting
Dizziness, decreased appetite, lymphn nodes, itching,
GOT SICK REACTED VIOLENTLY, TAKE THE OTHER SHOT
Usually after second does, you get better to normal. If reactions dont disappear after 72 hours see a doctor
DEATH, WHO IS HELD LIABLE
If proven that vaccine was cause, it has to be investigated, there will be resolve in a Court of Law
Some investigation revealed some reactions were panic attacks
WHO CANNOT SHOULD NOT TAKE
Immuno-compromise persons, persons who find themselves in a situation where they have inhabilitating conditions
Yes, Vaccine CAN mutate in vaccinated person
Its possible, but dont think such a chip was cleared
VACCINE FROM ABORTED FOETUSES
No evidence seen
