I wanted to make sense of the Vaccines, because to me, it was a confusing arena. Especially since my brain is caught up with the heavy stupor or steriods and blood anti-coagulants and antibiotics. So here is what I have drafted, from sources online. If I have made any mistakes, please feel to let me know, in the comments section.
The Table has EIGHT columns.
The Table has TEN rows.

|Infections:||Viral vectors cannot cause infection with COVID-19 or with the virus used as the vaccine vector.||Viral vectors cannot cause infection with COVID-19 or with the virus used as the vaccine vector.||Not harmful||Viral vectors cannot cause infection with COVID-19 or with the virus used as the vaccine vector.|
|Time interval:||The time interval between two doses – 4 to 8 weeks.||Two doses given intramuscularly (0.5ml each) with an interval of 8 to 12 weeks.||The second dose of Covaxin can be taken 4 to 6 weeks after the first.||Single dose|
|Efficacy||Affects 6 weeks, after first dose around 63% – 2 dose should be delayed to 12 weeks and efficacy improves to 81.3%||Affects 6 weeks, after first dose around 63% – 2 dose should be delayed to 12 weeks and efficacy improves to 81.3%||Vaccine affects after 6 weeks, after one dose 71% and vaccine efficacy is 81%||After two doses – 85%||After 7 days of the second dose – 91.3%||After 14 days of the second dose – 94.1%||One dose efficacy rate at 66% The vaccine is around 85% effective at preventing severe disease from COVID-19|
|Side effects||– blood clots – avoid this if you’re younger than 50 years. side effects are more after the first dose – fever headache||blood clots – avoid this if you’re younger than 50 years. side effects are more after the first dose – fever headache||headache, fatigue, myalgia, malaise, pyrexia, chills and arthralgia, nausea||Headache and soreness||side effects are more after second shot – allergic reactions most common||side effects are more after second shot – fatigue, muscle pain, and headache.||– blood clots – avoid this if you’re younger than 50 years. headache, fever, chills, nausea, pain anaphylaxis is rare|
|If infected post first dose:||Wait for 8-12 weeks before second dose||Wait for 4 weeks before second dose|
- Even if you have comorbidities – vaccinate!
- If after first dose you have anaphylactic problems. Don’t take the second dose
- If you are on Steroids, don’t take.
- Pregnant lactating woman should be vaccinated with Pfizer, moderna, no side effects.
- Vaccines working against all strains. But with two doses.
- If you get infected after the first dose – infection will be mild
- WHO states you can wait for 6 months between first and second dose of vaccination.
- 80% efficacy after first dose, for that duration, if shortage in vaccination. Do not panic.
- If you have been infected by COVID the combination of antibodies (Natural immunity) and vaccine is the best protection – and you may just need one dose of vaccination.
- Vaccines don’t work instantly.
- Astra is best in efficacy long term
- Even if u do vaccinate you may get COVID- it’s 94-95 % effective.
- If you have been infected with COVID-19, wait for 6 months to get vaccinated.
- Ask the Government to bring in mRNA vaccines!
