Community Health Club Members know how to prevent Covid 19
The ‘transmission route’ of Covid 19 on cards (1-17) are given out.
Then the prevention cards (18 -28) are given out.
Each person with a card comes forward to the front and stands in front of the transmission card that they could block, whilst explaining how their card can block the route of the transmission card.
When all cards have been shown, a discussion takes place as to the most effective interventions that can be done to ‘block the route’ of transmission.
The group must decide what is to be done before the next session to block this transmission route.
Visual Aids are needed in this session to enable participants to visualise and prompt discussion and debate.

Vaccination protects you from getting seriously ill and dying from COVID-19. For the first fourteen days after getting a vaccination, you do not have significant levels of protection, then it increases gradually. For a single dose vaccine, immunity will generally occur two weeks after vaccination. For two-dose vaccines, both doses are needed to achieve the highest level of immunity possible.
We are still learning if a vaccine keeps you from being infected and passing the virus on to others (transmission). it appears it is protection against severe disease and hospitalization. However, no vaccine is 100% effective and breakthrough infections may still occur.
Covid variants such as Delta may not respond. Therefore maintaining standard prevention measures is important especially in communities where SARS CoV-2 circulation is significant.
maintain at least a 1-metre distance from others,
cover a cough or sneeze in your elbow,
clean your hands frequently wear a mask, particularly in enclosed, crowded or poorly ventilated spaces. Always follow guidance from local authorities based on the situation and risk where you live.
Because COVID vaccines have only been developed in the past months, it’s too early to know the duration of protection of COVID-19 vaccines. Research is ongoing to answer this question. However, it’s encouraging that available data suggest that most people who recover from COVID-19 develop an immune response that provides at least some period of protection against reinfection – although we’re still learning how strong this protection is, and how long it lasts.
