Several epidemiologists have suggested administering a third dose of vaccine for health workers in the midst of the increasing number of deaths of their colleagues due to Covid-19 and the high increase in positive cases in Indonesia.

The administration of this third dose is said to be an incentive to increase or maintain the efficacy of the Sinovac vaccine and also protect health workers from attacks by new virus variants, such as Delta, which is reported to be more contagious.

This was revealed by an epidemiologist from the University of Indonesia Tri Yunis Miko and an Epidemiologist from Griffith University Australia, Dicky Budiman.

Health workers have received the Sinovac vaccine which has an efficacy of 65.3% based on BPOM data which began in January earlier this year.
