When do Vaccines Kick in?
Hereā€™s some helpful data on how soon and completely protection occurs after vaccination with the mRNA vaccines. Clear benefit 2 weeks after 1st dose. By 3 weeks after 1st dose, most of the benefit already reached. Full protection occurs 1 week after 2nd shot.

Early T cell and binding antibody responses are associated with Covid-19 RNA vaccine efficacy onset

Protective immunity must develop coincidentally with vaccine efficacy onset
80% of vaccinees develop Spike-binding antibodies at day 10 after the first dose
100% of vaccinees develop Spike-specific T cells at the same time point
Lack of neutralizing antibodies suggest they are not necessary to prevent Covid-19

Moderna Vaccine - Protective Against the Newer Strains
The two-dose regimen of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine at the 100 Āµg dose is expected to be protective against emerging strains detected to date.

Moderna announced today its mRNA-1273 COVID-19 vaccine does produce neutralizing titers against the B.1.1.7 (UK variant) and B.1.351 (South Africa variant). However, the company said there is a six-fold reduction in neutralizing titers in the latter variant.

Out of 100 people who get a Moderna shot, less than 1% develop a skin reaction of this type. After 8-10 days post vaccination. Treatment is supportive therapy only.

Antibodies are still present 6 months after 2nd dose

Good for 6 months

Lung Transplants Can Save Some COVID-19 Survivors
Surgeons worldwide have been performing lung transplants in COVID-19 survivors with irreversible lung damage, and an international group of transplant experts has proposed guidelines for selection of eligible patients. To possibly qualify for a transplant, COVID-19 survivors with complete lung failure should be younger than 65, nonsmokers, and have no pre-existing medical conditions, or only manageable ones, they advise. They said transplants should be performed at least four weeks after a diagnosis of irreversible lung damage.
