Covid-19 vaccine

covid 19 vaccnine

Long-awaited trials on a vaccine are now over with multiple trials now complete and signed off for roll-out with UK and US beginning their plans first. Below are a few of the common questions asked as it is perfectly normal to be anxious, worried or want to know what the vaccine is or does.

What does the vaccine do?
The vaccine helps protect you from the major symptoms of coronavirus and you may only have a mild form of the virus

How is the vaccine received?
The vaccine needs to be administered in two separate doses a few weeks apart. This does mean two trips to the local vaccination centre.

Are there any side affects?
Sometimes but these have been advised to be mild such as swelling where the injection was inserted, headache or feeling tired or a fever.

When will I get my vaccine?
This depends on where you live, but most countries will be rolling out a schedule starting with the most vulnerable such as Elderly, health care workers and anyone with health problems that are really at high risk from coronavirus. Refer to your governments website for details where you live.

How does it work?
The vaccine trains the body’s immune system to recognise the virus and help it to defend itself against a future attack.

For further information and detail please refer to your local healthcare website, especially if you have questions over the Covid-19 vaccine.

Medical oxygen shortages

3 reasons why oxygen is so important right now…

medical oxygen
  1. Oxygen treats so many conditions –
    Pneumonia plus many other respiratory diseases need medical oxygen to survive. The lack and low oxygen levels that come with these conditions means that the supply and need for medical oxygen is very very important. This affects people who suffer from illnesses such as: COPD, sleep apnea, extreme asthma attacks and more recently COVID-19.
  2. Oxygen is needed for all life on earth including animals – It is not just us humans but all the animals and plants need oxygen to function just as we do. The need for oxygen is for everything around us on Earth from beautiful flowers and trees to the animals in our oceans and on land.
  3. Oxygen helps mountaineers stay alive – The sheer atmosphere that comes with mountain areas across the world and its high elevations means that oxygen is needed to hep breathe and stay alive due to the drop in pressure at such high altitudes.
