UNDERSTANDING VACCINE HESITANCY

 

MYTH: COVID-19 stands for coronavirus disease, first detected in 2019 that is caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2.

FACT: When viruses replicate themselves, they often make mistakes copying their genetic code. This results in mutations, and slight changes in the building blocks of the virus. If enough mutations accumulate, the new virus may be considered significantly different from the original virus, and is considered a variant. Viral mutations and variations are common!  While some mutations may have no effect, or even decrease the ability of a virus to replicate, some variants can cause a virus to spread more easily and produce more severe symptoms. For SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), these have been identified as variants of concern. So far 4 variants of concern have been identified. The two predominant ones in Ontario are the alpha and delta variants, which may be more transmissible. It is still unclear whether they result in more severe disease. 

Currently, a COVID-19 vaccine is an injection that uses either mRNA or a viral vector to introduce a specific protein found on SARS-CoV-2 to your body. This process teaches our bodies how to effectively combat SARS-CoV-2 if we come across it, without the threat of a live virus.
