Kitui former senator and chairman of National Museums of Kenya, Hon David Musila on Saturday urged people to focus on fighting Covid-19 by taking all precautions, including wearing a mask, regularly washing hands and following other protocols.
“Let us keep the focus on fighting Covid-19 by taking all possible precautions including wearing a mask, regularly washing hands and following the other protocols,” he said.
Musila was speaking after taking his second of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.
It takes 3 weeks after getting the 1st dose for it to start to work. Research so far shows that protection after the 1st dose lasts for at least 16 weeks.
After having both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, most people will be protected against the virus.
There is a small chance you might still get COVID-19 after vaccination. Even if you do get COVID-19, being vaccinated can reduce how serious your symptoms will be.
