The hope is that the Covid-19 vaccine can also help prevent the spread of disease caused by the corona virus for future generations.
Quoted from Tribunnews, Pediatrician, dr. Endah Citraresmi, Sp.A (K), from the Caring Parents Foundation said, immunization is still the most effective way to prevent the spread of infectious and dangerous diseases that have a negative impact on public health.
However, there are still a small number of people who are reluctant to be vaccinated and get inaccurate information about vaccines.
“Vaccination will make a person immune so they don’t have to go through the sick phase when they are attacked by certain viruses or bacteria.
This is certainly different from the body’s natural immunity that appears after a person is attacked by a disease.
In these conditions, there needs to be a phase of illness first until finally healed and immune, ”he said in the Productive Dialogue the Committee for Handling COVID-19 and National Economic Recovery (KPCPEN) held, Tuesday (24/11/2020).
dr. Endah appealed to the public not to easily believe in false information about vaccines and immunization.
The safety of vaccines that have been circulating has been confirmed, because the vaccine production process has gone through the stages according to safety procedures, starting from pre-clinical trials in animals, followed by three stages of clinical trials in humans, until finally obtaining permission for use from the Food and Drug Administration. (BPOM).
