Top 5 Benefits of Getting COVID-19 Vaccinated

Did you know that we’re over 60% vaccinated at Smiles On Demand?

However, we understand and know that is completely normal for many people to have their reservations, especially in the beginning.

It’s been a whirlwind 2 years for everyone. And confusion and misinformation are everywhere!

That’s why we’ve been working closely with  IATF personnel (Inter-Agency Task Force For The Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases) including IATF commander Dr Liland Zoila B. Estacion to help us answer any questions our employees may have regarding the safety and science of the vaccines.

In summary:

Top 5 Benefits of Getting COVID-19 Vaccinated

1. They are Effective in Preventing Serious Illness

“COVID-19 vaccines also help children and adults from getting seriously ill even if they do get COVID-19.”

COVID-19 vaccines have undergone and will continue to undergo the most intensive safety monitoring. A growing body of evidence has shown that these vaccines are safe and effective. COVID-19 vaccines were developed using scientific methods that have been around for decades. There is no evidence that COVID-19 vaccines cause fertility problems.

2. The Benefits of COVID-19 Outweigh the Known and Potential Risks

The benefits of COVID-19 vaccination outweigh the known and potential risks. Reports of adverse events, like allergic reactions or myocarditis or pericarditis, are rare.

Everyone who receives a COVID-19 vaccine can participate in safety monitoring by enrolling themselves and their children ages 5 years and older in v-safe and completing health check-ins after the COVID-19 vaccination. Parents and caregivers can create or use their own accounts to enter their children’s information.

3. Once Fully Vaccinated People Can Start Doing More

After children and adults are fully vaccinated for COVID-19, they can resume many activities that they did before the pandemic.

4. COVID-19 Vaccination is a Safer Way to Help Build Protection

Children ages 5 years and older and adults who are eligible should get vaccinated regardless of whether they already had COVID-19. Evidence is emerging that people get better protection by being fully vaccinated compared with previously having a COVID-19 infection. 

One study showed that unvaccinated people who already had COVID-19 are more than two times as likely than fully vaccinated people to get COVID-19 again.

5. COVID-19 Vaccines Reduce the Risk of Infection

Once you receive your first shot, your body begins producing antibodies to the coronavirus. These antibodies help your immune system fight the virus if you happen to be exposed, so it reduces your chance of getting the disease. There are multiple vaccines available for use in the Philippines, and they are all more than 70% effective in preventing infection. 

It’s true that you can still become infected after being vaccinated, but once more of the population is vaccinated, those chances are further reduced thanks to something called herd immunity. So, getting vaccinated not only reduces your chance of being infected but also contributes to community protection, reducing the likelihood of virus transmission which is important when working in close quarters with other people.
