Covid 19 vaccine question?

Say you get your vaccine and then get your 2 shot. Wait a month for the vaccine to do what it got to do. And you go around some one that has covid. Does that mean you will get it 2? Now you got your 1st and 2nd shot gave them time to do there job. Can you still catch corona ?

    The shots do not stop you from getting or spreading the China Virus. 

    However, I would follow Biden and Comrade Harris's advice and do not take this vaccine. It was created by Trump who is a liar. Trump rushed the process and bypassed the wasteful bureaucracy.

    You need to wait for Biden to have his administration go through the normal process. In 6-8 years the vaccine will be approved and you can take it then

    yes, just like you can still catch the flu after having a flu shot

    Yup, you can still catch it, even if you've had both shots and given them time to take full effect.  Vaccines lower the risk, but they don't eliminate it completely.  The current Covid vaccines are expected to have a 95% effective rate.  That means for every 100 people vaccinated, 5 of them are still susceptible.

    Your family Doctor can give you antibiotics, you won't be welcome at ER in this pandemic.

    If you get covid, during the recovery process you will create IgG and IgM after 2-3 weeks.  The antibodies will continue to grow in strength and then begin to decrease.  While the antibodies are at a certain level, you cannot get re-infected with covid.  For most people the antibodies have decreased to level allows the person to get re-infected with covid after 3 or 4 months.

    The current vaccine is the same:

    The 1st vaccine begins creating the IgG / IgM antibodies, but they don't do a great job of getting you to a level that is strong enough to avoid contracting covid.

    With the 2nd vaccine it pushes the bodies development of the antibodies into overdrive and bout 3 weeks after the 2nd shot, 95% of the people have enough antibodies to avoid acquiring covid.

    However, like antibodies created via disease recovery, antibodies also decrease overtime and eventually there won't be enough to stop you from getting infected again.

    - studies show that the antibodies created from the vaccine decrease at a slightly slower rate.  So instead of being 4 months that they are gone, with the current vaccines it might 6-12 months.

    There are other vaccines in development that are only one dose. 

    So to answer your questions, it depends when you are around that person.

    The purpose of a vaccination is to show your immune system a 'simulation' of a virus it might have to deal with in the future, so when it sees it for real, it can quickly mobilise.

    Therefore, the aim of the Covid-19 vaccination is to ensure that when people catch the virus their symptoms aren't as bad and we will have fewer people needing hospital care and fewer people dying.

    What we don't know yet about any of the new vaccines is whether they reduce the probability of transmission. In other words, you can be vaccinated and it will protect you, but it's likely (until we know otherwise) that you will still be able to infect other people. 

    If this is the case it means that social distancing, wearing face masks, washing hands, etc will have to continue for many months yet until sufficiently high numbers in the population (probably around 70%) are immunised.

    Wait at least 12 weeks for the immunity to build up.  Then, you won't catch it.  But others still can.

    Yes, of course you can still contract the virus!

    Vaccines keep you from DYING of the virus.

    You chances are much better after getting both shots plus time.  But no vaccine is 100%, so it would be wise to keep using a mask and social distancing until everyone stops.  That's what I plan to do.  As for going around someone who is known to have active covid, I'd only do that if I was the primary caregiver.  For anyone else, I'd support them virtually over zoom or something.

    Yes you can but you won't get as sick or die. And you can still pass it on to others. The shots are like the flu shot. You can still get the flu but it won't be fatal. It will be more like a regular cold.
