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?
