As more and more people get vaccinated, there is hope that life will get back to normal soon. However, till that time, it is important that you still observe COVID-19 safety behaviour. So, before you ceremoniously remove your mask, understand the gravity of the situation and the repercussions of your action.
Even though the vaccination drive in India is picking up momentum, a large population is still not vaccinated. This means that the risk of COVID-19 remains. You might not be seriously impacted by the disease because you have the vaccination as a shield, but you could act as a transmitter for those who are not vaccinated. Even the government has advised everyone, including those already vaccinated, to continue to wear
and maintain physical distancing into the foreseeable future.
Here are 5 Reasons why you should continue wearing a mask even after vaccination:
The vaccine takes time to be active:
• Both Covaxin and Covishield require you to take two dosages of the vaccine for 100% protection. You need to get both dosages of the vaccine before they become your shield against the COVID-19 virus.
After the first dose of the vaccine, you only build partial immunity against the virus. This means that until you get the second dosage, you still have to be careful and wear a protective mask such as
The SuperMask comes with a six-layered triple filtration system and is reusable up to 30 times. The mask has been carefully designed for all weather conditions, keeping easy breathability and comfort in mind.
Vaccines are not 100% effective:
Although the vaccines are highly effective, they are not failproof against the virus. Irrespective of whether you get Covaxin or Covishield, the effectiveness of both vaccines is not 100%. These vaccines offer approximately 80-90% protection and can protect you from falling seriously ill. Hence, you cannot consider yourself to be completely immune to the virus.
It is important that you wear a protective mask such as Viroshield Reusable Masks for adults and
Wiki Champ Mask for Kids
. Both the masks have an antiviral finish and have proven to deactivate 99.99% of viruses, including COVID¬19. The masks are reusable and washable up to 30 times. Both the Mask are highly comfortable and breathable.
You could still be an Asymptomatic Carrier:
As per the current data, the COVID-19 vaccines can prevent the illness, but there is no evidence if these vaccines also prevent transmission. Vaccinated people can still become infected and not show any symptoms. However, in such cases, there is a risk that the virus can spread to others who have not been vaccinated.
So, it is advisable that even vaccinated people continue to wear a face mask like Wildcraft SuperMask until more people are vaccinated.
Need to Protect those Who cannot be Vaccinated:
Some people, such as young children and people with chronic allergies, cannot be vaccinated immediately. This means that these people are more at risk of contracting the virus and becoming ill.
Hence, as a responsible person, it is imperative that you wear your mask and steer clear of those who are at high risk because of no vaccination.
Limited Dosage of Vaccines:
The government has an ambitious target of vaccinating all people by the end of 2021. Everyone still needs to follow all COVID-safety protocols until the country acquires herd immunity, which would be until the end of 2021. Moreover, frontline workers and others working in risky environments should continue to wear protective gears, like
or PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), even if they are vaccinated. You can try the Wildcraft hazmat suits, respirator masks and face shield to stay safe amidst this coronavirus outbreak.
Overall, the vaccines are definitely a positive step in the right direction of a COVID-free world, but we are all still not completely safe. As much as the COVID- vaccines give hope for a safe future, the world cannot return to normal instantly. Healing from the COVID-19 virus is a time-taking process.
However, the country is on the right track in its fight against the novel coronavirus. As a responsible citizen, it is your duty to continue universal masking in public even if you are vaccinated. The objective is to protect everyone around you by not being a transmitter of the virus. Along with wearing a mask, be careful to observe other COVID appropriate behaviour, like handwashing, maintaining physical distance and avoiding large gatherings.
The desire for a safe and comfortable future is possible only when everyone is vaccinated. However, until that time, you should remain vigilant in your fight to control the COVID-19 virus.
