About Vaccines and its benefits

According to the Department of Health (DOH) and the World Health Organization (WHO), the use of any covid-19 vaccine brand will help a person prevent the spread and contracting of the viral disease.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has reiterated that COVID-19 vaccines are proven to be safe, effective, and life-saving. Like all vaccines, they do not fully protect everyone who is vaccinated, and we do not yet know how well they can prevent people from transmitting the virus to others. So as well as getting vaccinated, we must also continue with other measures to fight the pandemic.

To know more about vaccines and their efficacy, you may read from the World Health Organization website,

In the arm where you got the shot:
  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Swelling
Throughout the rest of your body:
  • Tiredness
  • Headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Chills

These side effects happen within a day or two of getting the vaccine. They are normal signs that your body is building protection and should go away within a few days. (see reference)

Have you been vaccinated already? If not yet, pre-register your names to your respective barangays or malls. Just bring your valid government ID or work ID, and you are good to go!
