COVID-19 Vaccine Myths Busted: Ever since the availability of COVID-19 vaccines, there have also been many myths and misinformation spread around them. To clear up these, six Indian doctors, scientists, and health educators have teamed up to bust myths that surround the COVID-19 vaccines in India.

Myth: The COVID-19 vaccines are not effective

Fact: The COVID-19 vaccines are in fact safe and effective. Even if one gets infected after the vaccination, there are reduced hospitalizations and adverse outcomes on the infected person’s body due to vaccinations. Therefore, it is important to get vaccinated.

Myth: Vaccines should not be given to patients with blood pressure issues, diabetes, HIV, kidney problems, or cancer survivors

Fact: Dr. Yuvraj has confirmed that this is absolutely false. Much opposite to the myth that is being spread around, he said that people with blood pressure issues, diabetes, HIV, kidney problems or cancer should be the first ones to be vaccinated on priority due to their health conditions.

Six COVID-19 Vaccine Myths Busted By Experts You Should Know

Myth: Don’t get vaccinated during your periods because your immunity is low

Fact: Making its way around social networks, this myth is busted by Dr. Tanaya. The immunity of a person is not low during menstruation. Your period does not affect the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine. Therefore, the periods nor the vaccine have anything to do with each other.

Myth: If you have had COVID-19 once, you no longer need vaccination or masks

Fact: COVID-19 reinfection is very much possible. Dr. Trinetra Haldar emphasised the importance of wearing a mask. Wearing a mask is important on all occasions when you expose yourself to the outside world whether you’ve had COVID or not. It’s also important to take the vaccine 14 days after you become asymptomatic from the virus.

Myth: COVID-19 Vaccines can make you infertile

Fact: Dr. Prateek Makwana said that this myth that is being spread around is completely false. There is no scientific evidence that proves or even suggests that COVID vaccines affect fertility at all.

Myth: You cannot take vaccines if you are pregnant or breastfeeding

Fact: Dr. Riddhima Shetty confirmed that pregnant and breastfeeding doctors must consult their doctors and discuss with them in detail about the vaccine. An informed decision must be made to take the vaccine especially if they are at an increased risk of exposure to the virus.
