Vaccinations and Other Protocols Can Boost Protection against Variants

Aldo Sosa

With as many as ten COVID-19 variants across the world, some Belizeans are questioning the effectiveness of the vaccines against these variants. That is one of the questions we posed to Senior Medical Technician at the Central Medical Lab, Aldo Sosa earlier this week.

“While we all know that it does not stop you from getting infected, it does generate this high situation of protection against the disease being much more severe against a persons. And of course also, following our other protocols you know. Simply taking care where we go, taking care of our own health as well, if we have some kind of flu symptom to seek medical attention as well, and safe guard those around us, especially the most vulnerable population.”

“Can you answer whether the vaccine protects against the variants of concern?”

“Well, only from what I’ve read. And, from what I have read, it does offer protection against these variants.”
