Health workers (nakes) are one of the decisive guards in efforts to end the pandemic. But now the death rate for health workers is relatively high. The government also decided to give a third vaccination.

The government always protects health workers, both physically and mentally. This is important, especially in the midst of the second wave of Covid-19 transmission in the country.

The readiness of health workers to provide services during a surge in Covid-19 cases can be used as a measure of success in preventing the COV-2 SAR virus attack. Therefore, maintaining the condition of health workers is always excellent, both physically and mentally, is a shared responsibility.

That is why, in her written statement, on Friday (9/7/2021), the Chairperson of the Indonesian House of Representatives, Puan Maharani, reminded the importance of the government creating a protection system for health workers.

"The task of health workers is not only to help recover Covid-19 patients, but also to protect and protect themselves and their families from being infected with the virus. Therefore, we ask the government to create a protection system for health workers, both physically and mentally," he said.

As is known, data collected by the Indonesian Hospital Association (PERSI) together with the Indonesian Doctors Association (IDI) and the Indonesian National Nurses Association (PPNI), shows that since the beginning of the pandemic, namely March 2, 2020, until June 28, 2021, there were 1,031 medical human resources. who died from being infected with the mutant corona virus.

"So, Indonesia has lost thousands of health fighters due to this pandemic. With daily cases that continue to soar, the condition of health workers is increasingly worrying," said Puan.

Not only that, from the report she received, Puan revealed that medical human resources who were exposed to Covid-19 also did not have much time to recover their health. As soon as the test states a negative result, he continued, the medical human resources for Covid-19 survivors are often immediately asked to return to work due to the limited number of medical personnel at the hospital.

That is why, Puan then invited the wider community to be able to continue to appreciate the health workers who are working hard to deal with the pandemic. "Or if you can't appreciate it, at least the community, especially the patient's family, should avoid misunderstandings or counterproductive accusations against health workers, so that it doesn't weaken their mental and physical health," he said

Meanwhile, the Secretary General of PERSI, Lia Gardenia Partakusuma in a meeting with Commission IX of the DPR, Monday (5/7/2021), said that from the total data on medical human resources who died, there were 405 doctors, 43 dentists, 328 nurses, 160 midwives, and 95 medical human resources

Efforts to protect for the front line health workers have certainly become serious thoughts from the Indonesian government, especially when the number of Covid-19 transmission has increased significantly, starting in the last few weeks. Until Friday (9/7/2021), Coordinating Minister for the Economy Airlangga Hartarto presented the latest information related to efforts to protect medical human resources. The form is a third vaccination program.

The PC-PEN Task Force revealed that the 3rd vaccination program will start next week for 1.47 million medical human resources. "The technical implementation will be regulated by the Ministry of Health," the task force wrote in Airlangga's presentation at the press conference.

The confirmation of the third vaccination only for medical human resources was conveyed by the Minister of Health, Budi Gunadi Sadikin. He explained that this was necessary because the national vaccination target had not been achieved so that priority was given to health workers who work at the forefront of handling Covid-19.

style="font-family: arial; font-size: medium;">"It is important for us to understand that this 3rd vaccination is only given to health workers because they are every time they encounter the Covid-19 virus," he said at a press conference, quoted from the Indonesian Economics YouTube, Friday (9/7/2021).

On that occasion, Minister of Health Budi also admitted that he had received a recommendation from the Food and Drug Supervisory Agency (POM) and the Indonesia Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (ITAGI), as independent advisors, to implement the third vaccination program. "It has been agreed that the 3rd vaccine will be administered using the Moderna vaccine," he said.

Moderna vaccine itself, according to Minister of Health Budi, will come in July, with 4 million doses gradually.

Vaccine Development

Not only in the realm of policy, the third vaccination is also being a serious discussion in the research world. Research on booster vaccines is also being developed, including by Pfizer and BioNTech.

The company has announced the development of a Covid-19 booster vaccine that they are carrying out intending to disable the Delta variant of the corona virus.
