Dr.Pavan Kumar Reddy, Head of the Department of Critical Care at CARE Hospitals Banjarahills received 1st dose of his vaccination today. Today at CARE Banjara Planned to take vaccination for 300 Staff Members. Dr.Rahul Medakkar Hospital Chief Operating Officer CARE Hospitals Banjarahills Said COVID-19 vaccination will help protect you by creating an antibody (immune system) response without having to experience sickness. Getting vaccinated yourself may also protect people around you, particularly people at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines require two doses to offer the full benefit. The first dose helps the immune system create a response against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The second dose further boosts the immune response to ensure long-term protection. Widespread vaccination for the coronavirus means that the virus will not infect as many people. This will limit spread through communities. Both Pfizer and Moderna report that their vaccines show approximately 95% efficacy at preventing both mild and severe symptoms of COVID-19.
