The third phase of coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination is all set to begin on May 1, 2021, and all the preparations are being across several states in India. In this phase of the vaccination drive, citizens above the age of 18 will  be vaccinated against the virus and the registration process for the same began on Wednesday, April 28, 2021.

Earlier, the central government permitted the vaccine to be given to employees of the emergency services, frontline workers, citizens above 60 and 45 years, in the first and second phase of the vaccination. The decision to begin the third phase was taken last week, when the COVID-19 cases in India were on an exponential rise. 

However, officials have mentioned that many citizens over the age of 45 have still not been vaccinated, and some users have taken to the social media to spread the rumors about the risk of vaccination. This has led to a confusion among the citizens where some have believed in the rumours and are not opting for the same. 

However, below mentioned are the reasons why we believe one should get the coronavirus vaccine. The aim is to clear the misconception regarding the same.

  • Firstly, one needs to understand that the coronavirus vaccine is being administered to prevent the risk of infection. 
  • The vaccine will help in reducing the severity of the infection and in many cases from death too.
  • Vaccines permitted in India are modified, and hence the antibodies will be produced in the body only after taking two doses of the vaccine.
  • The body's ability to fight off the disease is tripled by the increase in antibodies, and as they increase, so does the immunity.
  • Furthermore, experts state that after getting vaccinated the rate of hospital admissions also reduce by approximately 85 per cent.

Currently, there are two vaccines being administered in India. Some citizens are being given Serum Institute of India's (SII) Covishield, and others are being administered Bharat Biotech's Covaxin. While the mechanism of action is different for both the vaccines, it is important for us to understand that the purpose is the same, which is to increase the immunity in the body and the capability to fight the virus.
