Will the Coronavirus vaccine mean we are clear 100 percent of getting the virus guaranteed ?

    Not even close.  Look at the flu vaccine.

    Sometimes vaccines work really well, like Polio or Rabies.  But Coronavirus is known to mutate (like it did in China in 2019), and a mutated strain might be completely unaffected by a vaccine.  It might split off into several mutations regularly, like the common flu, which would cut a vaccine's effectiveness drastically.

    MOST DEFINITELY NOT!!.. governments around the world are very clear about the role of vaccines in this pandemic.. when the director of the CDC, Dr Redfield, was asked in a Senate hearing few weeks ago about COVID-19 vaccines, he started talking about hand-washing and mask-wearing, as if those were more or equally important as a COVID-19 vaccine..

    when a vaccine passes the third and the final stage of human trials into the 'Emergency Authorization' stage, there is going to be a period when the small amounts of the vaccine would only be enough for essential workers and people who are particularly more vulnerable to COVID-19 - probably around the end of 2020 and early 2021.. when the production finally catches-up, the COVID-19 vaccine should be ready in probably second or third quarter of 2021 for the general public.. (we can only pray to be sooner)..

    and even after this vaccine is made available to the general public in sufficient amounts, governments and health-departments would probably recommend: mask-wearing, social distancing, hand-washing and even lockdowns, quarantine and travel-bans for another year or maybe 2 years..

    people fail to understand that vaccines are JUST ANOTHER weapon next to other weapons to fight off this pandemic: like wearing-mask, hand-washing, anti-viral medications, steroids like Dexamethasone, serum medications and such.. in America, vaccines is heavily politicized and seen as our only saviour in this pandemic - this is MOST certainly not..

    a fight against an epidemic or a pandemic, is like a fight between 2 armies for dominance - between an attacking army (the viral load, the number of people infected with COVID-19) and a defending army trying to defend a castle.. you can boost the chance of victory for the defending army by building up defences (like vaccines), by minimizing the chance of losing (social-distancing, mask-wearing and such) and by repairing the damage that is being caused (antiviral medications, steroids, anti-inflammatories, immunosuppressants and immune-modifiers etc)..

    without a comprehensive and an effective nation-wide vaccination program, any vaccine will definitely fail.. internet-trolls, anti-vaxxers, sceptics or just average people who simply want to wait a bit longer until the vaccine is further proven to be safe (as if the months-worth of human trials were for nothing), will definitely make this pandemic longer than it should be..

    our Ministry of Health are blunt about the vaccines - we just see them as a supplement to our current efforts against COVID-19.. i cannot speak about the rest of the world, but most of my friends from overseas were informed about the role of vaccines and the level of expectation that we should put on them.. `

    {edited: the Flu vaccine is NOT the same as the COVID-19 vaccine.. Seasonal Flu is caused by a number of viruses, most notably: Influenzavirus A, B, and C.. each year, experts at the CDC, WHO and other health authorities, meet to discuss which Flu vaccine to be used this year.. coronaviruses do not operate the same way as influenza viruses.. `

    `

    `

    it is true that the COVID-19 coronavirus (better known as SARS-CoV-2) came from the SARS coronavirus (the original SARS-CoV); however data shows that SARS (an illness that had terrorized East Asia from mid 2000s to mid 2010s) is now becoming a Common Cold illness in 2020 (becoming but not officially a common cold illness).. it is theorized that COVID-19 coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) will become like the original SARS.. and in 2030 or in 2040, COVID-19 will become a common cold illness - just like SARS.. `

    `

     

    Seasonal Flu symptoms is more of high-fever, cough, sore throat, lung complications and deaths (this is why COVID-19 is said to cause flu-like symptoms).. Common Cold symptoms are much milder with mostly running nose, maybe some cough and maybe some low-grade fever.. `

    `

    over 200 viruses are associated with the Common Cold, about 15% of them are Human Coronavirus family of viruses.. so if you ever had a running nose and mild fever in the past, there is a 15% chance that you got a Human Coronavirus before 2020.. `

    `

    back in 2003, SARS coronavirus had killed many people and it presented with severe flu-like symptoms (just like Covid-19 in 2020); BUT in 2020, people in Asia who contract SARS, they are more likely to present with Common Cold and less likely to cause the Flu-like symptoms.. `

    `

    in late 2020, there are already signs that COVID-19 coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) is becoming less and less of a flu-like illness - the same way that SARS coronavirus (the original SARS-CoV) is becoming like a Common Cold illness, like a number of Human Coronaviruses that came before them..}

    Until we see it, not worth talking about it.
