House Senior Deputy Minority Leader and Iloilo Rep. Janette Garin warned those who have been inoculated with COVID-19 vaccines against complacency, stressing that vaccination is not an immediate actual protection.

“Even if vaccinated, anyone can still be infected if you are too confident,” said Garin after receiving reports that some recipients of the first dose are no longer wearing masks and have become very complacent.

“They should still be wary as vaccination is not immediate outright protection as our body takes time to develop effective antibodies or soldiers against COVID. Effective protection starts two to four weeks after the second dose,” said Garin, a former Health secretary.

Garin said COVID-19 vaccinees, especially those waiting for the second dose should continue practicing minimum public health standards such as wearing of face mask and face shield and practicing social distancing.

She said a healthy lifestyle could also help boost the immune system and prevent acquiring the dreaded virus.
