The process for vaccinations opens up for all adults from May 1, therefore it is essential to keep a few things in mind before opting for it. Basically, the two doses of Covaxi is scheduled to be taken four weeks apart, and in the case of Covishield, the doses have to be delivered at an interval of 6-8 weeks. At the time of the interim period between the two doses, one may get Covid positive. What to do then? Should he or she wait for a while and safely take the vaccine any time after 2-4 weeks after all the symptoms of the COVID-19 have been fixed?
The answer is quite simple and straightforward. The experts have suggested that someone who has had COVID-19 recently desires to take the vaccine, then without any hesitation, that person should do so anytime between one to three months after symptom resolution, following infection with SARS-.CoV-2.
The experts have concluded that the vaccines of COVID-19 are disease-modifying vaccines. Both Covaxin and Covishield do not stop you from getting an infection, but they designed to protect and safeguard you against any critical disease from COVID-19 in future.
Still, if you do get infected after taking both doses of either of the vaccine, experts will suggest you not to go for revaccination at the prevailing time. Your vaccine will remain efficient and will control your symptoms better. It is also a chance that if a person with asymptomatic Covid infection takes the vaccine, but there is nothing to worry about. It does not generate any unfavourable effects.
According to the studies, antibody titres in case of a natural infection may go down with time, normally within 6-9 months. On the other hand, in the case of the Covid-19 Vaccine, the immunity lasts longer. The vaccine will thus help prevent any severe disease.
