Did KKM fail to warn people that the COVID-19 vaccine reduces immunity, letting them fall sick or dying?
Take a look at the latest viral warning, and find out what the FACTS really are!
Claim : KKM Should Warn That Vaccine Reduces Immunity
This viral message is being shared on WhatsApp, warning that KKM should warn people that the COVID-19 vaccine reduces their body’s immune system for 46 days, putting them at risk of falling sick or dying!
It’s a very long message, so skip to the next section for the facts…
Truth : COVID-19 Vaccine Does NOT Reduce Immunity!
Like 95% of viral messages on COVID-19 – this is yet another piece of FAKE NEWS based on some facts.
Let me go through the claims and share with you what the FACTS really are. Please share this with your family and friends!
Fact #1 : COVID-19 Vaccine Does NOT Reduce Immunity
Let me be very clear – the COVID-19 vaccine does NOT reduce immunity.
The COVID-19 vaccine is nothing more than a self-defence class for your immune system, teaching it how to fight against the real SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Will learning self-defence in real life make you a weaker person? Of course, not!
The COVID-19 vaccine does not reduce your natural immunity one bit, not even for one day.
As your immune system learns to make antibodies against these antigens, it grows stronger, not weaker, against COVID-19.
Fact #2 : Side Effects Are Signs Of Immune Response
Just like how you sweat and get muscle ache in a self-defence class, you may feel a little sick after your vaccination.
That is not evidence that the COVID-19 vaccine has reduced your body’s immunity. That is your body’s natural reaction when your immune system gets triggered by the vaccine.
The fever that you may get, for example, is a way for your body to boost its immune response. So when you get a fever, your body actually produces a more robust immune response, not weaker.
Fact #3 : Full Immunity Takes Time
It is true that maximum immunity takes time – often two weeks after the second dose is taken (for a 2-dose vaccine).
The second dose is designed to kick the immune system into high gear, basically telling it – “Warning, this is not a one-time attack! COVID-19 can come again!”
This not only triggers the immune system to create more antibodies, it also activates your memory cells to “remember” SARS-COV-2 for faster recognition and antibody production in the future.
That is why it is important to complete both doses of a 2-dose vaccine, and continue to practice COVID-19 precautions until your body has enough time to build its defences.

Fact #4 : It Does Not Take 3 Months To Improve Immunity
Dr. Zhong Nanshan – China’s top respiratory disease physician – never claimed that it will take up to 3 months to build the body’s immunity after COVID-19 vaccination.
On 1 April 2021, he told Hong Kong’s Phoenix TV that COVID-19 vaccines using the inactivated virus technology – like Sinovac and Sinopharm – usually takes 40 days to trigger enough antibodies to prevent infection.
Fact #5 : You Can Get Infected After Vaccination
It is true that you can get infected with COVID-19 even after completing your vaccination. However, that is not because COVID-19 vaccines reduce your immunity.
These vaccine breakthrough infections are expected, because vaccines cannot guarantee complete protection.
Even the best COVID-19 vaccines – from Pfizer and Moderna – can only prevent 94%-95% of COVID-19 infections. That means 5% of those who are fully vaccinated using these vaccines could still get infected.
That does not mean vaccines are useless. COVID-19 vaccines are not meant to prevent all infections. They are meant to prevent SEVERE DISEASE and DEATH!
If you get infected with COVID-19 after vaccination, you will likely get a mild disease, or it may even be asymptomatic!
Fact #6 : We Must Maintain COVID-19 Precautions After Vaccination
In addition, vaccinated people who get mild or asymptomatic COVID-19 infections can still spread COVID-19 to other people.
So we must CONTINUE to take COVID-19 precautions, even after we are fully vaccinated.
- wear a face mask whenever we are out in public,
- wear a face shield or some kind of eyewear if possible,
- maintain physical distancing, and
- keep our hands clean.
This will help protect both the unvaccinated from getting infected, and the vaccinated from breakthrough infections.
