A recent study by ICMR revealed that Covid-19 vaccines reduce hospital admissions and mortality in case of infections in those who were given the vaccine.
Experts across the world have been suggesting that vaccination can reduce the severity of COVID-19 disease.
A Twitter user, Dr. Faheem Younus, recently posted images of two X-rays to shed light on the same.
Yes. You can get COVID after vaccination but it’s typically mild disease— Faheem Younus, MD (@FaheemYounus) July 18, 2021

While a lot of people agreed with him and urged everyone to get vaccinated...
When I had post-vax Covid earlier this month the virus never seemed to attack my lungs at all https://t.co/omcs7Uw9cR— Liam Stack (@liamstack) July 19, 2021

This tracks my experience treating this disease before and after mass vaccination here. https://t.co/8kLGrBBqD1— Jeremy Faust MD MS (ER physician) (@jeremyfaust) July 19, 2021
Yesterday for the first time we lost a family member due to Covid complications. He was working in refinary for almost 30 years which itself weakens your lungs and unfortunately he didn't take a dose of vaccine until date. Don't hesitate just do it. Whatever happens matters later https://t.co/5karcXPZ99— Muhammad Adhil (@urstrulyadhil) July 18, 2021
If you can, get vaccinated. If you don't do it for yourself, do it for your loved ones. https://t.co/Dwalb8DBn0— Alex Rangel (@alexxrangelq04) July 19, 2021
... There were some who shared opposite experiences.
Not against vaccination, but this is bizzare logic. 1st picture is covid patient without lung infection and 2nd is with lung infection. 2nd can happen to anyone irrespective of vaccination. Chances of 2nd is lower with vaccination though. #VaccinesWork https://t.co/M8wz1JPso3— Mouggambo (@Mouggambo) July 18, 2021
i agree with you but you're dumb as fuck if you think xrays show the right/correct results for COVID+ people. https://t.co/35KSiYJZMk— Haisum 🇵🇸 (@highsomee) July 18, 2021
While studies on the effect of vaccine are still underway, one thing is clear from the experiences of medical professionals across the world - Getting the vaccine is our best bet.
