Hi, my name is Sakshi and I’m a doctor.
I'm going to explain how the COVID-19 vaccine works.
Vaccines are injected into your body, they do not remove anything from your body and they do not change your genes or your DNA.
COVID-19 vaccines teach your body to recognize and fight the COVID-19 virus. They do not contain COVID-19 and you cannot get COVID-19 from having the vaccines.
Mild side effects like headaches or muscle ache, mean that the vaccine is actually working. COVID-19 vaccines help prevent serious illnesses and death.
Everyone can do their part to protect the family and the community by getting vaccinated.
