Children and Adolescents with These 9 Conditions Can’t Get a Covid-19 Vaccine

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – Giving injections vaccine Covid-19 for the age group of children and adolescents, ranging in age from 12 to 17 years, also provides protection for the body. The goal is to avoid transmission of the virus or possible severe symptoms due to infection with the Covid-19 virus or SARS Cov-2.


Vaksin bekerja dengan merangsang pembentukan kekebalan terhadap penyakit. Tubuh akan mengingat virus pembawa penyakit, kemudian mengenali dan melawannya.

Program vaksinasi Covid-19 bertujuan membentuk kekebalan kelompok atau herd immunity. Vaksinasi tak hanya diperuntukkan bagi orang dewasa, namun juga golongan usia anak dan remaja. Hanya saja, bukan merupakan prioritas utama untuk divaksinasi pada awal gelombang vaksinasi.
