DO NOT GET VACCINATED IF YOU SHOW COVID-19 SYMPTOMS

The Epidemiology Unit of the Ministry of Health says a person who is showing symptoms of the Covid-19 virus should not get vaccinated.

“There is no point in receiving the vaccine because they already have the virus in their body,” Chief Epidemiologist Dr. Sudath Samaraweera said during a press conference today (16).

Vaccinations for those who are currently quarantined and those who are suspected to be infected will be delayed, he added.

Dr. Sudath Samaraweera said getting vaccinated by concealing the symptoms would no be appropriate.
