How Will I Know I am Protected After I Have the Vaccine?
It’s a very good question, to know whether or not you’re infected after you’ve had the vaccine. And unfortunately there’s no magic way.
We can’t afford to do antibody testing, on everybody who’s had the vaccine. So you just have to assume, that it goes along with what was found in the clinical trials namely, that if you’ve had the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, you’re likely to a 90% chance. In other words, you got a nine out of 10 chance, of being well protected against the disease.
If you’ve got the Astra vaccine according to the data, that we know at the time I’m recording this video, it’s a 60% chance of being protected.
So you just have to go along with those statistics.
