Since the pandemic started, life on earth has gone through a drastic change. The effect on physical and mental health has led us to an unimaginable loss. The world is currently going through the third wave of covid19. Amid such a crisis, coronavirus immunity is essential.
Once a person catches the virus and stabilizes back to normal, he develops immunity against the virus. The development of antibodies results in immunity from the disease. Further, the vaccination is the prime source of immunity against Covid19. Immunity against it has been a big question since the beginning of the pandemic. Knowing the facts, one realizes getting through it wasn’t easy for the health department of the world.
Moreover, new researches suggest that those people who recover from covid. The immunity in them lasts for more than 8 months. After vaccination, it could last at least a year. The predicted immunity range is good if it works out properly.
Vaccination – Antibodies development
Vaccines are game-changers when it comes to viruses. Vaccines involve antigens to produce antibodies. Antigens are the pathogenic parts causing the disease. The human body takes some time to react when a person is exposed to the virus. In the meanwhile, the immune system develops antibodies.
However, this is natural immunity. Vaccines produce antibodies. As a result, antibodies also produce memory cells which help in developing immunity for a longer duration. The newly developed vaccines for coronavirus immunity development are listed below,
- Sputnik V
- Oxford, AstraZeneca vaccine
Above mentioned immunity developers are available worldwide. People are using them, and there is no side effect in most of them till now.
Antibody dependent enhancement
This phenomenon exacerbates the condition of the virus. In this condition, the antibody favours the entry of the virus into host cells. Therefore, causing the virus to spread rapidly than normal. The antibody-dependent enhancement phenomenon for SARS-CoV-2 is still under research.
Recently, a statement of a Nobel laureate went viral. According to him, the ADE phenomenon would result in the death of vaccinated people within two years of vaccination. As a result, people started to panic as the news circulated on media. However, this news was proved to be fake worldwide.
Hence, there is no truth in the ADE phenomenon in the Corona vaccine. So, get yourself vaccinated as soon as possible. Stay at home and stay safe.
