Debunking the Vaccine Myths
September 22, 2021
As millions of vaccines are being given out and the amount of vaccinated people is increasing by the day, it is important to be aware of how COVID vaccines actually work and how they can effectively prevent you, your friends and your family from getting COVID.
I’ve already gotten COVID, I don’t need to be vaccinated.
If you have already gotten COVID and have recovered from it, your body does produce antibodies that can help with the prevention of getting COVID again. However, there is always the possibility that you could get COVID again, which is why it is always safer to get a vaccine that is guaranteed to help prevent another sickness.
I’m already vaccinated, so I shouldn’t have to wear a mask.
Being vaccinated doesn’t mean that you don’t have to wear your mask anymore. Despite most stores in Alabama allowing vaccinated people to enter without enforcing a mask, masking up still helps to protect you from any bacteria that can cause the COVID sickness to appear again. And if you’re not vaccinated and don’t wear your mask, put it on. Seriously.
The COVID vaccine will give me COVID, right?
A common myth that has been quickly debunked. COVID vaccines cannot and will not give you COVID. The vaccines help our immune systems to protect us against the bacteria that can cause COVID. The common symptoms after getting vaccinated can only last up to a few days.
The government is implanting microchips in those vaccines!
If microscopic chips were to be implanted in our skin through the vaccine, it would be obvious to assume that you would feel it in your skin. A needle as small as the ones the vaccines are given through simply don’t allow much (if at all) space to physically place a chip and insert it into your arm. Also, isn’t this illegal?
Many concerns about getting vaccinated are evident in many Americans not only in Alabama but worldwide as well. This is a new vaccine and it is okay to be cautious, but as Americans, we must also be aware that this is the only way we can get our lives back to normal and safely enjoy those after-school activities that we love. Encourage as many people as you can to get vaccinated and stay safe.
