Indonesian Ministry of Health: Covid-19 Vaccine Not A Coronavirus Cure

The Indonesian Ministry of Health has warned that the Covid-19 vaccine is not an instant cure for the coronavirus as the government has started vaccinations around the country.

“A recipient of a Covid-19 vaccine can still contract the coronavirus. But if they get vaccinated, their body will receive defenses that will keep them from falling ill,” said Ministry of Health spokesperson Siti Nadia Tarmizi on Monday, February 15.

Nadia pointed out that the vaccine can build up an individual’s antibody gradually. “The first dosage [of the Covid-19] vaccine can build up 60 percent of the recipient’s antibody. If they take their second dosage, their antibody [against Covid-19] can increase to 95 percent.”

Meanwhile, President Joko ' Jokowi' Widodo has called on the Indonesian armed forces and Indonesian National Police to support the government's mass Covid-19 inoculation drive.

"The armed forces and police are well-placed to enforce health protocols, because their respective command structures reached to village or neighborhood levels," he said.

"Their ability to enforce [the law] in a coordinated manner can also help break the Covid-19 chain of transmission." The government aims to vaccinate about 70 percent of Indonesia’s population, or 182 million people, to achieve herd immunity against Covid-19.
