The Ministry of Health data showed that the booster dose of the Covid-19 vaccine could increase antibody protection up to two-fold compared with the initial two-dose series.

“Booster vaccination is also needed to protect the elderly and vulnerable groups or those with comorbidities from contracting Covid-19,” said Jokowi.

He called on the people to get a free booster shot without being choosy. He said all vaccines protect the community from the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Let’s keep on what we are doing together so that Indonesia will recover and the economy will improve,” the president said.
