Why do COVID-19 vaccines protect us from getting severely sick and dying, BUT do not protect us from getting infected?

This is a good question that we will try to explain clearly:

  • The COVID-19 virus installs itself in the oropharyngeal area (nose and throat),
  • Vaccines provide immunity in the blood,
  • Therefore, vaccines do not prevent the COVID-19 virus, especially the highly contagious Delta variant, from settling in the nose and throat,
  • However, vaccines prevent the virus from contaminating the blood and destroying tissues in vital organs.

What more are you still waiting for to get vaccinated?
