Without a doubt, the world is beginning to see a significant decrease in COVID-19 cases thanks to vaccination plans in all countries. So the WHO has seen with great hope the beginning of the end of the pandemic, which has not only left millions of deaths around the planet, but also serious social, economic and psychological effects.

The reduction of these cases occurs at a historic moment for the scientific community that worked tirelessly in order to achieve the diverse biologicals that are today saving the lives of billions of inhabitants. Although there were many victims of the pandemic, humanity must understand that competition and financing in health systems are a priority for the challenges it will face in the near future and thus avoid another collapse.

It is essential to understand the real facts and believe in what science itself has offered, since some myths and beliefs were created around this crisis that put into question the credibility of the experts and, therefore, of all of us. 

Less chance of dying from coronavirus

According to the United States CDC, all vaccines have been shown to be highly effective in preventing death from coronavirus. The side effects from them are slight or non-existent and, on the contrary, the unvaccinated are 11 times more likely to die than those who have applied the antidote.

Probabilities of contagion

None of the licensed vaccines make people sick with Covid-19. These are designed to teach the immune system to recognize and fight the virus. While those who receive the biological have a high protection, the unvaccinated are 4.5 times more likely to be infected.

Side effects of the vaccine

Sometimes vaccinated people may have a fever, malaise, headache, or pain at the injection site, but the likelihood of hospitalization is virtually nil. However, those who do not get vaccinated are 10 times more likely to require specialized medical assistance in a clinical center.

All the follow-up that has been done during the clinical trials and the vaccination process have been fundamental to infer that the biologics to which all the countries of the globe have access are really effective. Likewise, vaccination is the easiest way to end this crisis. 

"The bottom line is this: we have the scientific tools we need to turn this pandemic around," said CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky at a briefing at the White House, where the benefits of getting vaccinated were discussed. .
