Covid-19 has been haunting us for the last two years, and there is no doubt that it has significantly affected our lifestyles: from wearing masks to working at home. However, in order to end this hoo-har, we need to get vaccinated.


By now, most of you would have been vaccinated at least once, twice if you are over 16. Although some of us have not taken all 3 available, which is detrimental to everyone. Getting our vaccination will prevent lockdowns, isolation and the spread of the virus. According to, people aged 2-16 are contracting Covid-19 more than any other age group, so it is clear that children need to be prioritised, we cannot have online learning for any longer. Anyone who has not taken the vaccine without a severe condition/reason is endangering the public, and are being highly inconsiderate to others.


Does the vaccine stop me from getting Covid?

You have probably heard this question being asked multiple times, and no, the vaccine does not stop you from getting the virus, but it considerably decreases the chances of you doing so. A booster vaccine gives you 93% and 94% protection from AstraZeneca and Pfizer respectively (source:


How long does it take to be double-vaccinated?

The recommended gap between your first and second jab is around 12 weeks, and 6 months for your booster. I had my vaccine around 6 weeks ago, so I will probably get my 2nd dose in February.


Unless you have a severe condition or allergy, I highly recommend you take your Covid-19 vaccine as soon as possible, to stop the spread of the virus that has been annoying us for the last 2 years.
