Why Should I Get a Booster Vaccine?

A booster vaccine is an additional vaccine given after someone has received a complete primary vaccine (first dose and second dose). Booster vaccines are given to maintain our body’s immune level, as primary vaccine immunity naturally decreases over time. As with primary vaccination, booster vaccination has the potential to cause side effects such as pain and swelling at the injection site, fever, fever, and headache. This is the body’s natural response indicating the vaccine is working, so it is nothing to worry about. In Indonesia, the types of booster vaccines used are Sinovac, AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna, Janssen (J&J), and Sinopharm.
