Understanding COVID 19 Vaccines

Our JIT NSS team along with Galileo Science Club organized the webinar on topic “Understanding COVID 19 Vaccines” presented by Dr. T V Venkateshwaran, Scientist F @ Division Head, Science and Communication Training Vigyan Prasar, New Delhi. Through this programme he has shared the following valuable points with students, parents and common people through online platform.

          The COVID-19 vaccines produce protection against the disease, as a result of developing an immune response to the SARS-Cov-2 virus.  Developing immunity through vaccination means there is a reduced risk of developing the illness and its consequences. This immunity helps you fight the virus if exposed. Getting vaccinated may also protect people around you, because if you are protected from getting infected and from disease, you are less likely to infect someone else. This is particularly important to protect people at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19, such as healthcare providers, older or elderly adults, and people with other medical conditions.
