Since what we have with us are experimental COVID19 vaccines, it must be remembered that they are still subject to some scrutiny and research. a serious risk with the virus that still leaves people susceptible to infection, whether mild or moderate.
The risk of re-infection and contagion also doubles for people with weak immunity who have health conditions that make the vaccine less effective.
With the mutated virus still in full force, the pandemic is not yet over, so compliance with basic preventive measures like face masks and social distancing remains urgent.
