No need to wear mask after COVID vaccine? Here's the truth behind viral claim

Government has also advised to stop believing in rumours and check official site for further clarification

Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP) of US had stated that people who complete their vaccination can go without mask in US. But they warn that it is extremely necessary to wear mask in gathering.


But, recently a fake claim was circulating on social media that those who complete the two dosage of vaccination can go without mask in India too.


If we see the database, 9.3 million people received one shot and 4,208 were infected afterwards -- or 0.04%. Around 1.7 million people received both shots and 695 were infected later, again around 0.04%. So we cannot ruled out the chances of not getting infected after second dose even if infection rate is low. Also, Covishield is 70% effective, Covaxin 78%, Russia’s Sputnik V 92%. So, there remain possibility of getting infected even after inoculation.


So, the fake claim circulating on social media is baseless. It is always important to wear mask even after completing all dosage. Government has also advised to stop believing in rumours and check official site for further clarification.
