  • How exactly the vaccine works: It is a known fact that the virus can be defeated only if the natural immune system turns protective enough to fight the virus. This is exactly what this vaccine does. It helps the body prepare effective antibodies that can terminate the virus.
  • Which one is better? The vaccine or our natural immune system?: Although a bit confusing question but quite easier to answer. The natural immune system comes first to defeat the virus and the vaccine provokes our body to recognize the virus and prepare antibodies for that. In other words, it trains the body to recognize the virus so that your body can easily prepare antibodies for that. As a result of that, there remains no chances to get worried if you get infected sooner or later because your body has already recognized the virus and can easily defect it.
  • What are the types of this vaccine that are available? : Pfizer, Moderna INC, Oxford-Astrazeneca, Sputnik V including the Covishield and Covaxin are some types of antidotes of this deadly disease.
  • The vaccine technology: Moderna and Pfizer is mRNA vaccines and Covaxin is merely an inactivated virus vaccine. On the other hand, Covishield is known for using a viral vector. Knowingly, mRNA vaccine makes the body produce a harmless kind of vaccine and it is the same kind of vaccine that is found on the surface of the virus. On the other hand, the viral vector is known for using a harmless kind of genetically modified virus that fuels the antibody production against covid-19. Apart from that, the inactivated virus technology is known for containing a killed virus, which plays the lead role to evoke the antibody presence in the body and strengthens the immune system.
  • Covid-19 vaccine efficacy:
    Pfizer : 95%
    Moderna : 94.1%
    Oxford Vaccine : 62%
  • Covid-119 vaccine storage: the Pfizer vaccine must be stored -94 degree fahrenheit. On the other hand, the Oxford Vaccine can be stored at a temperature of 2-8 degree celsius.
  • Price of the vaccine: the price range is hugely variable as each vaccine costs different. However, Pfizer and Moderna cost more than the oxford vaccine. However, it is definitely something to take pride that the vaccination facilities are available for free of cost in India.
