COVID – 19 Vaccines for ADPI Employees
Vaccination is a simple, safe, and effective way of protecting people against harmful diseases, before they come into contact with them. It uses your body’s natural defenses to build resistance to specific infections and makes your immune system stronger. Vaccines train your immune system to create antibodies, just as it does when it’s exposed to a disease. However, because vaccines contain only killed or weakened forms of germs like viruses or bacteria, they do not cause the disease or put you at risk of its complications. Studies show that Covid – 19 vaccines are safe and effective. Most people who get COVID-19 have mild or moderate symptoms and can recover early.
Employees of Academia de Pulilan , Inc. have given a memorandum to get vaccinated. At first, all are undecided because of its causes and effects. There are questions behind this vaccine. Confusion , fear and doubt begin to tickle in our mind, but then, the brighter side of this vaccination has already come, without vaccines, we are at risk of serious illness and disability from diseases. Two key reasons to get vaccinated are to protect ourselves and to protect those around us. Before we get vaccinated , there are some protocols that each employee follows, these are wearing face masks in public, washing the hands with soap and water frequently for at least 20 seconds at a time, using a hand sanitizer, with at least 60% alcohol, when washing the hands is not possible, covering any sneeze or cough with a tissue or handkerchief, and washing the hands, avoiding touching the face, regularly cleaning and disinfecting surfaces that people frequently touch, such as doorknobs limiting or avoiding handshakes, staying home and away from others if sick, staying away from people who are not housemates, avoiding crowds whenever possible, avoiding poorly ventilated places whenever possible, being watchful for any symptoms, including a high fever and a cough. If a person has a mild or asymptomatic form of COVID-19, it is still crucial to limit contact trusted source with others, especially older adults and people with weakened immune systems.
