Giving Third Vaccine Dose as ‘Complement’
The set of recommendations published by SAGE advises offering an extra dose of WHO-approved vaccines to people with moderate and severe immune disorders as an “extended primary series”.
Equitable distribution of the first and second doses should be prioritized in the country’s Covid-19 vaccination drive. Later, a third dose can be given to vulnerable groups.
JAKARTA, KOMPAS — Experts have recommended giving a third vaccine dose for those with immune disorders to protect them against Covid-19. In addition, elderly people who have received the Sinovac or Sinopharm vaccines are advised to get another dose as a booster. But it is recommended that Indonesia prioritize the equitable administration of the first and second vaccine doses.
