COVID-19 vaccine For Kids: Is it safe for your kids to be around people who have received the shot?

Getting the coronavirus shot means the person builds immunity against the virus, but it does not mean they cannot be infected with the virus or it is not present around them. Even after getting the jab, a person may carry the virus without showing any symptoms. Besides, no vaccine guarantees complete protection against the virus. The efficacy of the vaccine currently being administered maybe 80% to 90% but its effectiveness varies in the real world due to several factors.

Secondly, the virus can be present anywhere like on different surfaces and can be easily passed on to kids while playing or engaging in some other activity. So, it is better for the time being to maintain social distance, practice regular hand hygiene, wear a mask and stay away from people who do not live together in the same household.
