Mostly Incorrect
Dr. Ombeva said that the vaccines cannot and will not give one COVID19 or a positive PCR test result. “COVID19 vaccines are made from a protein called the Messenger RNA vaccines or MRNA itself. However, the virus is usually attenuated (killed) so that it cannot cause harm to a person. When injected into one’s body, with the antigen, the immune system gets triggered fighting the dead MRNA”.

A claim that people should isolate after getting vaccinated has been making round.

According to the poster, this is so because the vaccines are made with live virus  SARS-COV-2 virus cells which are administered into one’s body and that the vaccines instead give one COVID19.If one doesn’t isolate, they can easily infect others.

According to Dr. Ombeva Malande, a vaccinologist at Infectious diseases Institute, the claim is false.

Dr. Ombeva said that the vaccines cannot and will not give one COVID19 or a positive PCR test result.

“COVID19 vaccines are made from a protein called the Messenger RNA vaccines or MRNA itself. However, the virus is usually attenuated (killed) so that it cannot cause harm to a person. When injected into one’s body, with the antigen, the immune system gets triggered fighting the dead MRNA”.

He further said that MRNA vaccines are a new type of vaccines to protect against infectious diseases. These teach our cells how to make proteins that the immune system can respond to without causing serious consequences of one getting infected with COVID19.
