  1. Is it really so that if a person is vaccinated, it lessens or prevents him or her from contracting or spreading Covid? From my understanding, a vaccinated person will be protecting vital organs from being severely damaged, but he or she can still get infected and can still pass on the virus to another person. So to me, it is misleading to say that a vaccinated person helps to prevent the spread of Covid, or is less likely to get infected. Whether or not a person takes the vaccine, he or she can still get infected and pass on the virus to someone else.

  2. A fully vaccinated person is less likely to spread the covid-19 virus, this is becasue they are more likely to be asymptomatic (showing no symptoms). Research suggests that persons showing no symptoms are 43% less likely to spread the virus when compared to symptomatic people. This indicates that the vaccine does not prevent you from contracting the virus but it reduces the risk of the virus negatively affecting your personal health and the risk of you spreading it to others. Specifically, according to studies on the astra zenica vaccine more than 70% of fully vaccinated persons become asymptomatic if they contract the virus and those that become symptomaitc (~30%), none become hospitalized. With this in mind, it is correct to say that vaccinated person can contract the virus, but it is also correct that vaccinated helps to prevent the spread of the virus. Best of luck to you.
