I like the way karnataka local body is approaching vaccination.
Their next task is to go to IT majors and vaccinate the employees all in work place..
They have gone to areas housing the poor and vaccinating them first .

Do you know that people who get reactions have more immunity than those without much reactions?

Funny, right?
Sadly that is not true. It might be a consolation to the people who suffered an adverse reaction but untrue.
The factors that play a part in the reaction are many, but getting added immunity is not one of them.



If the vaccine has an efficacy of 99% for an average person and if getting serious side effects increases by 99.00009% it is only a rounding error. There is no proof that people who get sick have more immunity.

So let me be clear. Vaccines are safe. There is no link to autism. This has been one of the most studied hypotheses in modern science and there is no evidence to support the idea. Some number of people may have negative side effects. No one wants to minimize those effects, but they occur at rates of one out of hundreds of thousands or millions of doses given. That’s similar to the odds of getting struck by lightning in a given year (which is 1 in 500,000).


Dr. Gregory Poland, an infectious diseases expert and head of Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Research Group, says everybody is different. He says the first dose teaches your body to recognize the virus and the second vaccine is kicking the body's system into gear.

"It's as if you've started a cold car, with the first dose," says Dr. Poland. "The car is idling. Then you give it that second dose, and because the car has warmed up, you can put the pedal to the metal and go." But everybody is going to respond differently.

"Each of our bodies releases different amounts of chemicals, or immune signals. One body might release more than what's needed, causing more of a response, and someone else's body might release exactly the right amount. It's what we've called the 'Goldilocks phenomenon.' Not too much, not too little, but just right."
Dr. Greg Poland
Dr. Poland says a reaction does not mean anything is wrong. "It's an indication that your body is revved up, prepared to do battle against what it thinks is a foreign invader." If people have less of a reaction, it does not mean they aren't developing an immune response, Dr. Poland emphasizes.

Dr. Melanie Swift, co-chair of Mayo Clinic's COVID-19 Vaccine Allocation and Distribution Work Group, says all vaccines could cause some degree of reaction. The same is true with the COVID-19 vaccines.

"They do provoke an immune reaction, which can cause symptoms," says Dr. Swift. "That shouldn't be confused with being harmful or being unsafe. It's what the vaccine is intended to do."
