The President has been Vaccinated, Are You Ready to Get Vaccinated?

The Covid-19 pandemic in Indonesia has entered a new stage with the initiation of vaccination. President Joko Widodo is the first person in Indonesia who received this vaccine. The Indonesian Food and Drug Authority (BPOM) has granted an emergency permit for the Covid-19 vaccine from Sinovac on January 11, 2021.

With the vaccination, it is hoped that the coronavirus can be prevented so that we can all carry out normal activities as before. However, surely many of you are still wondering about the vaccine. Some are very confident about getting vaccinated, while others are still hesitant.

The Sinovac vaccine, which is used for the first time in Indonesia, has passed the 3rd phase of clinical trials in Brazil, Turkey, as well as in Bandung. The trials are in accordance with the standards set by the World Health Organization (WHO). Therefore, the people who will receive the vaccine should not have any doubts about the Sinovac vaccine.

The vaccination process will be different for each person. You will be injected with the vaccine twice at 14 days intervals. Thus, you should remember the vaccination schedule. 

Why two injections? The vaccine works by exposing small portions of the virus so that the immune system can learn to identify the source of the disease. Giving more than one dose of vaccine will increase the possibility of the immune system learning about the virus and formulating ways to prevent further infections.

Two vaccine injections will provide an opportunity for the immune system to produce more antibodies. The body will be exposed to more antigens, which will make the immune system create more memory cells. In turn, more memory cells will trigger a faster and more effective antibody response in the future.

So, after being vaccinated, can we freely do our activities without using a mask? You should get rid of the assumption that if you have been injected with the vaccine, all viruses will disappear instantly. You still have to implement health protocols. 

Currently, aside from 3M, the implementation of 5M is being promoted, namely wearing masks, washing hands, maintaining distance, limiting mobility, and staying away from crowds. So, be patient and comply with health protocols.

For daily mobility, you still have to look for a safe mode of transportation. If you want to make a trip by car, make sure that your car is clean and safe. Don’t let your trip be interrupted in the middle of the road due to some trivial problems.
