Do you have some questions about Covid 19 Vaccines?

Do you have some questions about Covid 19 Vaccines?

Pharmacy news

30-07-2021

I’m Mitch Timms, pharmacist at Berwick Pharmacy and we are seeing first hand how interested many of our patients are in getting their Covid 19 vaccine. Lots of questions so here are a few of them with my answers. Please come into our our pharmacies at Berwick and Eden Rise if you need further information. Both pharmacies have been accredited to administer the Covid 19 vaccine (at this stage just the Astra Zeneca) and we are waiting now for the official starting date. You’ll be able to make a vaccination booking on our websites (Berwick Pharmacy or Eden Rise Pharmacy).
 
I’ll answer a few common questions in this post, beginning with the older ones.
 
1. COVID-19 is just like a cold or flu, why do we need to keep our distance and wear masks when we will recover in a few days?
Symptoms: Whilst the symptoms of COVID-19 present similiar to the cold or flu, it spreads much more rapidly, therefore higher portions of the population are infected, including out most vulnerable (the elderly), who are more likely to have severe symptoms, hospitalisations and die from COVID-19
 
2. Social distance and Masks: Whilst there is some evidence to suggest COVID-19 can be transmitted via air, the majority of transmissions is through droplets in the air, these are droplets that an infected patient expells from their mouth and nose can travel up to ~1 metre, this is why 1.5m distancing helps prevent transmission. Masks aid by trapping the droplets in the mask fibres and reducing the chance of transmission
 
3. I’ve been told to quarantine for 14 days, but I feel fine, why do I need to isolate if I don’t have any symptoms?
Whilst you don’t currently feel sick, you may become symptomatic in the next 11-12 days post exposure to COVID-19.
Some people don’t get symptoms, or only have mild symptoms, whilst they are still infectious, this can be passed on through fleeting contact with anyone else. Staying home for 14 days protects everyone, including your closest friends and family.

We are still open but remember to wear your mask

We are still open but remember to wear your mask

We’re open as normal during the Covid shutdown but please remember to wear your mask in the pharmacy. This protects you and of course others.

It’s hard not to touch your face mask once it’s on, but it’s important in preventing the spread of disease.

So how do you avoid touching your mask? The best place to start is with a mask that fits well.

Pinch the wire over your nose so that it fits snugly, and adjust the straps so that they are tight enough to comfortably hold the mask in place over your mouth and nose.

Hint: You might need to tie a loop in the elastic on both sides if it is too long, or snip and re-sew if you are handy with a needle and thread.

And if you absolutely need to adjust your mask or scratch your nose? Thoroughly wash or sanitise your hands immediately afterwards.
