Dr. Celine Gounder, an infectious disease specialist at New York’s Bellevue Hospital Center, says clearly that if you are vaccinated, you are safe. The virus will not be able to show much effect on you but you can make it difficult for people who have not yet been vaccinated. People who have been vaccinated can become carriers of the virus. Such people can be the main reason for infecting others.
No effect due to low dose of virus
Dr. Scott Dryden Petersen, epidemiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, says that if a person who has been vaccinated is exposed to a low dose of the virus, then it is possible that he may not get the infection or he may not even realize it.
Immunity may also respond when the delta variant is exposed to high doses. The situation will become more serious when the rate of community transmission of the virus increases, due to which more and more people will be caught by the virus.
everyone has to be careful
The head of the New England Journal of Medicine, Dr. Eric J. Rubin says that now only those who have not been vaccinated do not have to take precautions alone. Everyone has to take precautions at their level so that the virus does not get a chance to increase its numbers. If we are not able to do this then everything will be as before what we have seen and heard. Only a rescue effort can save a life.
Time to consider a booster dose
Immunologist at Rockefeller University in New York, Prof. Michael C Nussenzwig says that the protective shield to protect against any variant of the virus is prepared on the basis of how many antibodies are made after vaccination. People who have been vaccinated are getting infection but they are not showing any serious problems. This proves that the current vaccines are capable of prevention and it is time to consider booster doses.
