- People who receive a COVID vaccine from Pfizer or Moderna still need a few weeks to build up immunity.
- People who immediately ease up on coronavirus safety guidelines after getting vaccinated put themselves and others at risk.
- Another reason to maintain COVID safety rules post-vaccination is that it's unclear if vaccinated individuals can still transmit the virus to others.
When Pfizer back in November announced that its coronavirus vaccine was 95% effective at preventing a COVID-19 infection, health experts were blown away. The 95% figure not only stunned medical professionals but even surprised Pfizer executives who, while hoping for positive results from Phase 3 clinical trials, didn't imagine they'd see an efficacy rate of 95%.
A few weeks after Pfizer made its research results public, Moderna announced that its own COVID-19 vaccine was 95% effective at preventing a COVID-19 infection as well. It is, however, incredibly important to stress that receiving a COVID vaccine should in no way be viewed as a license to take coronavirus safety guidelines less seriously.
