Kompas.com reported that an epidemiologist at Griffith University in Australia, Dicky Budiman, said that it is important to administer the fourth dose to the healthcare workers. This is to ensure that public health services are protected during the pandemic.
“There is a need for maximum protection for healthcare workers,” said Dicky.
Besides, healthcare workers are also included in the high-risk group as they are dealing directly with patients and people who may be infected with Covid-19.
“They are considered high risk for the coronavirus infection or spreading the virus,” Dicky said.
