About COVID-19 Vaccine at Chughtai Lab


COVID-19 Vaccine at Chughtai Lab is among the Best Pathology Labs in Lahore.

COVID-19 Vaccination:

In Pakistan COVID-19 Vaccination has begun and in the initial phases, front line health care workers will be administered with the vaccine. In phase 2, all Pakistanis above the age of 65 can register for the Covid vaccine and after the successful trials of these phases, the vaccine will be available for the general public.

Pakistan has so far approved three coronavirus vaccines:
  • The Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine
  • The China National Pharmaceutical Group SinoPharm vaccine
  • The Russian-developed Sputnik V vaccine

Covid Vaccine Registration Pakistan will follow an eight step process once the vaccines become available as outlined by the NCOC. The strategy was developed after consultation with all provinces and relevant stakeholders and is according to established international health guidelines.

The Sinopharm Vaccine:

Created in China by the Beijing Institute of Biological Product, the Sinopharm vaccine has an efficacy rate of 79%. It has been through three full phases of testing in the U.A.E, Morocco and Peru where it was approved by local authorities. China has begun exporting this vaccine to other countries, including Pakistan.

This vaccine is not recommended for people over the age of 60. It is made up of deactivated Coronavirus cells that stimulate the immune system and cause it to create COVID-19 antibodies, giving the patient protection from the virus. It is currently unclear how long this protection lasts and could be anywhere from a few months to entire decades.

The Oxford-AstraZeneca Vaccine:

This vaccine was made at Oxford University and was tested by AstraZeneca, a large pharmaceutical company, and so far has an efficacy rate of 62%. No one who has received the vaccine has become ill because of it and the vaccine has been through three full phases of testing. It was tested and approved in the UK, Brazil and South Africa. It has also been approved by the European Medicines Agency for people above the age of 18.

It is currently unknown how long this protection will last as more studies have to be conducted. This vaccine is made by modified versions of the common cold virus, these cells cannot cause any kind of illness but do teach the body’s immune system to fight the actual virus, should it appear.

Sputnik V Vaccine:

Developed by Russia’s Ministry of Health and tested by Gamaleya, a Russian medical research institute, the Sputnik V vaccine has a proposed efficacy rate of 92%. It is important to note that although the vaccine’s phase 1 and phase 2 trial date has been published, the phase 3 data is still not available to the public so this efficacy rate has not been verified. Russian scientists have not reported any side effects associated with the vaccine.

The vaccine has mainly just been tested in Russia but has been approved in Argentina, Pakistan and 20 other countries. It also uses a modified version of the common cold virus to teach the immune system to fight COVID-19.

COVID Vaccine Side Effects:

COVID-19 Vaccines have been tested and proven to be safe yet minor side effects can occur that typically last a few days only. A side effect is not always a bad sign; it may indicate that the body is building immunity against the virus.

The common side effects of Covid vaccine include:
  • Pain at the site of the injection
  • Painful, swollen lymph nodes in the arm where the vaccine was injected
  • Tiredness
  • Headache
  • Muscle or joint aches
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fever or chills.

What Does THE COVID-19 Vaccine Cost?

COVID-19 Vaccine usually costs around XYZ in Pakistan. This price range varies depending upon the medical facility in which the vaccination was performed, the condition of the patient and the hospital expenditure/equipment. In order to avail the best rates for an appointment, make sure to use Oladoc or call (042) 38900939 and avail up to 50% discounts on your checkups.

What is Corona Virus or COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 that can trigger what doctors call a respiratory tract infection. It can affect your upper respiratory tract (sinuses, nose, and throat) or lower respiratory tract (windpipe and lungs). It spreads the same way many other viruses do, mainly through person-to-person contact. Infections range from mild to deadly, depending upon a number of factors.

SARS-CoV-2 is one of seven types of coronavirus, including the ones that cause severe diseases like the Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and sudden acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). The other coronaviruses cause most of the colds that affect us during the year but aren’t a serious threat for otherwise healthy people.

Symptoms of COVID-19:

Signs and symptoms of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) may appear two to 14 days after exposure. This time after exposure and before having symptoms is referred to as the incubation period. Common signs and symptoms of coronavirus include:

  • Fever
  • Dry Cough
  • Fatigue or Tiredness
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Other symptoms may include:
  • Muscle aches
  • Chills
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose
  • Headache
  • Chest pain
  • Pink eye (conjunctivitis)

The severity of COVID-19 symptoms range from mild to severe and different people can experience different symptoms depending upon factors such as immunity, underlying health condition, age etc. Some people may not experience any symptoms at all yet can still be carrying the COVID-19 virus. If you have any doubt regarding coming in contact with a COVID patient or have experienced any of the above mentioned symptoms yourself, it is highly recommended that you consult a health specialist as soon as possible.
