he Minister of Health, Marta Temido, has said that she estimates that 70 percent of the Portuguese population will be vaccinated against Covid-19 by the end of the summer, stressing that health rules must be maintained after vaccination.

“They are steps, they are small steps, they are steps that sometimes have trips, which we would like to avoid, but we cannot lose sight of what is the goal we want to reach, which is, at the end of the summer, to have 70 percent of the our population vaccinated against covid-19”, said Marta Temido.

According to Marta Temedio, after vaccination, the population cannot fail to comply with the rules of hygiene and physical distance.

"The vaccine helps to protect, but it is not a complete shield, and therefore the rest of the measures have to be maintained and we must continue to be careful", she warned.

"The vaccine helps to protect, but it is not a complete shield, and therefore the rest of the measures have to be maintained and we must continue to be careful"

According to the vaccine producers, the vaccine will only help to minimize the health problems if one gets infected. It gives no "shield" at all!
Why is every newspaper avoiding that info? Isn't that crucial? People will get a false sense of security, thinking the vaccine will protect them from getting infected or showing it to others. Just ask your doctor, don't believe me. I'm just a concerned human.
