Vaccine Campaign against the Covid 19

We have started the vaccine campaign against the covid and the residents and the professionals of the Residence el Carmen have now had the first dose administered.

 

The vaccine is guaranteed by the independent regulating agencies which are the ones who authorize the use on the population. The same agéncies regúlate the use of the antibiótics adminístered to children when they are ill, the medicación usted to treat cancer or the anaesthesia adminístered during an operation. No medicine is 100%safe on all the population because each one of us is different. The vaccines are different, most are preventive and are administered on healthy people.

 

This is why we tolerate less any side effect even is it is insignificant and why this medication is the most regulated, observed and safe that exists.

 

In conditions of emergency,as in this pandemic,the procedures to authorize the use of new vaccines are accelerated.This is the reason why, in less than a year ,we have a few candidates in the market when the usual process takes more than ten years.

  1. We have not started from zero,there were some research groups working on some  vaccines for similar virus;
  2. Some of these projects with other coronavirus had already reached the clinical phase I and this previous experience has been kept in mind.
  3. A great amount of money has been invested ,as has never been done in the history of science ,to carry out these experiments with much more speed;
  4. There is an international collaboration, also unique in history, among universities, research centres , governments and NGOs;
  5. The regulating agencies have given priority by means of continuous evaluation, reducing bureaucracy and waiting time but without skipping any stage;
  6. Clinical phases I and II have been able to overlap and before one was finished the other had already begun;
  7. Clinical phase III has recruited thousands of volunteers from different countries and different groups, so the results are statiscally more significant than with other trials;
  8. The production of the vaccines is being carried out assuming a risk.They are being produced for many months without knowing if they will finally be approved,that is the reason why they can appear on the market as soon as authorization is received. Besides,once we know the vaccines are safe and efficient in the previous phases, we must not forget there is another phase IV of observation to continue evaluating its safety and efficiency.
