COVID-19 vaccines protect against contracting the infection.

COVID-19 vaccines reduce the risk of contracting the infection and reduce the chance of getting severely ill or dying due to coronavirus.

COVID-19 vaccines reduce the risk of contracting the infection and reduce the chance of getting severely ill or dying due to coronavirus.Since the COVID-19 vaccine rollout began worldwide in January 2021, several scientists have proved the efficiency of vaccines against the virus. According to the World Health Organization, vaccines fight the infection and reduce the risk of contracting the disease. Also, vaccinated individuals are less likely to contract the virus than unvaccinated individuals, and their chances of getting severely ill, hospitalized, or dying are low.

On September 30, an article in Cell, a publisher of scientific journals, outlined international vaccine effectiveness against COVID-19 variants and showed that the currently approved vaccines continue to effectively prevent severe and symptomatic illness — even with the widely circulating Delta variant. The report said that the vaccines provided up to 91.9 to 95.3 percent protection against hospitalization due to the infection.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there is increasing evidence that COVID-19 vaccines also protect against asymptomatic infections. The vaccination can reduce the spread of disease overall, helping protect people around you.

Even Logically has debunked several conspiracy theories and medical disinformation regarding COVID-19 vaccines proving that the COVID-19 vaccines protect people from severe illness and hospitalization.

Therefore, as the real-world data in multiple countries suggests, vaccines provide high-grade protection against coronavirus. Even though the vaccinated individuals can contract the virus; however, their risk of contracting the virus remains lower than the unvaccinated, and their chances of turning severely ill are also less.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19, including symptoms, prevention, and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organization or your national healthcare authority.
