Hello! I hope you are all doing well in 2021! I thought we should start the year off by making a post about the Covid vaccine that is rapidly becoming available to everyone. This post will not be diving into the ethics or standards of research involved in the current Covid 19 vaccine being released. This will simply give the stats that are being posted online for your knowledge so that you can make your own well informed decisions on whether or not to be vaccinated. Vaccinations across the world have begun and over 2 million vaccines have already been given to the American people. A study done showed that after the first injection patients had over a 50% chance of resistance to the COVID-19 virus. Seven days after receiving the second dose that percentage rose to approximately 95%. Again allow me to clearly state this post is not an opinion, nor does it dive into the ethics, validity, or reliability of this research. This is simply to spread information to the public so that you can make your own informed decision on whether or not to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
