The coronavirus vaccine protects you from getting seriously ill or dying if you come in contact with the virus. This in itself is the most wonderful thing about the vaccine. But a new published study highlighted another striking benefit of the vaccine that shouldn’t be overlooked. Vaccination can lead to significant improvements in people’s mental health.

THE SYMPTMS OF DEPRESSION HAVE CHANGED

In the study, published in the journal PLoS One, researchers followed people who received the first dose of any coronavirus vaccine between December 2020 and March 2021. The study found that those who were vaccinated were less more likely to have mild or severe symptoms of depression than those who had not yet been vaccinated.

Considering that mental health is as important as physical health, we can say that everyone has one more reason to get vaccinated …

HOW IS PANDEMIC HARMFUL TO PEOPLE’S MENTAL HEALTH

According to information from Hoffpost, national surveys conducted at various times during the last 18 months of the epidemic indicate an alarming increase in mental health problems, and those increases often coincide with an increase in cases.

CHRONIC STRESS A NATIONAL CRISIS

Experts have warned that Americans’ chronic stress has increased since the start of the pandemic, calling it a “national crisis.”

For example, in the summer of 2020, nearly 4 in 10 Americans were struggling with mental health or addiction issues, compared to about 1 in 10 adults before the pandemic.

“As before the pandemic, adults in poor general health (physically and mentally) continue to report higher rates of symptoms of anxiety and / or depression than adults in general health,” the Kaiser Family Foundation warned in his February report.

WHY CAN THE VACCINE HELP?

Of course, there are many reasons mental health issues are on the rise during the pandemic, from widespread job losses to loneliness. While the new study can’t say exactly why people who get vaccinated experience positive improvements in their mental health, experts say it’s likely a combination of all factors.

LESS CONCERN, MORE SOCIAL ASSET

Researchers say people who get the vaccine start to worry less about getting an infection, so they can be more socially active or have the chance to try new employment opportunities. Previous studies show that isolation is an important factor in people’s mental health during the pandemic; which is why doctors are doing a lot of propaganda this fall to bring kids back to classrooms.

The new findings by no means suggest that vaccination is a panacea or that it will provide millions of people with the mental health they need, but experts note that the positive impact of vaccination on overall mental health may. be larger than previously thought, as it can spread to unvaccinated people.

This once again reveals that the vaccine is not just about our own health, but the health of all of us.
