I’m fully vaccinated

Today, I’m going to talk about the words “vaccine”, “vaccinate”, and “vaccination”.

A vaccine is a medicine. It makes you less likely to get a disease or virus. Each vaccine protects you from one illness. For example, the flu vaccine protects you from getting the flu. It doesn’t protect you from getting COVID-19.

A vaccination is an act of giving you a vaccine, by actually putting a tiny bit of virus or bacteria into your body.

In the case of COVID-19, when you receive your vaccination ticket, you can get vaccinated either individually at your doctor’s clinic or through the mass vaccination program. If you’re an employee, workplace vaccination may also be available.

My mother’s just got the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine. She is now fully vaccinated. Good for her!
