The vaccine was always going to look different for those people who are immunocompromised. It is important for them they understand how the vaccine may work in protecting them and how long they may be protected.
There is also little information out there on what may happen in say 5 to 10 years’ time, for those who have had the vaccine.
A typical vaccine’s development timeline, to research and develop usually takes between 5 and 10 years, sometimes longer. Accelerated time line, between 1 and 2 years. (Source: https://coronavirus.jhu.edu). In the production of a vaccine, scientists gage safety, dosing and immune responses.
The precautionary measures put in place by the UK Government should continue, so that we all continue to remain safe. For those who are high risk, and who have taken the vaccine, they are still vulnerable. They are still vulnerable because precautionary measures have been lifted and you can still catch Covid and Long-Covid with the vaccine.
Also, it is no longer mandatory for people to social distance and wear mask coverings in the UK, apart from public transport in London, although it is advisory everywhere else.
With children going back to school in September and universities reopening their doors in October, without those protections in place, we could again see a rise in Covid-19 cases.
To help those of us who are high risk, we should all continue to take the necessary precautions. Right now, thousands of vulnerable people are trapped in their homes because all measures have been lifted and they cannot safely move about, even if they have had the vaccine.
The more we mask up and social distance, the more protection we can have, the more we can ALL get back into our lives. With the lifting of restrictions, it’s still something we should all continue to do.
