Another good news for Jakartan! Since August 2021, the Moderna vaccine used for the Covid-19 vaccination has been available in the capital. Initially, Moderna vaccination was prioritized for medical workers and the general public at certain health facilities with limited quotas. Then, in line with the efforts to optimize the vaccination program, the Jakarta Provincial Government through the Health Agency is opening Moderna vaccinations for a wider recipients.

Therefore, Moderna's vaccination quota is also increased. There are also additional health facilities that provide Moderna vaccines. The public can also register for the Moderna vaccination on the JAKI application. So, if you have not been vaccinated and are planning to be vaccinated with the Moderna vaccine, you are reading the right article. Before being vaccinated, you need to know information about the vaccine itself, its requirements, and the location where the vaccine is available. You can find them in the following article

A Brief Explanation About Moderna Vaccine

The Moderna vaccine (or mRNA-1273) is produced by the United States biotechnology company, Moderna. This vaccine is a messenger RNA (mRNA) type that uses genetic material to provide a stimulus to body cells to form antibodies. Just like most other types of vaccines, the Moderna vaccine requires 2 shots.

In Indonesia, the Moderna vaccine itself has passed the safety and efficacy test from the Food and Drug Supervisory Agency (BPOM) with the Experts of the National Covid-19 Vaccine Assessment Committee and the Indonesia Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (ITAGI). In the recipient age group of 18 to under 65 years, the Moderna vaccine was able to prevent the severity effect of Covid-19 infection by 94.1%. Meanwhile, for the age group of 65 years and over, the Moderna vaccine was able to prevent the severity of 86.4%. Moderna's vaccine is also effective in clinical trials to prevent Covid-19 infection among people of various age, gender, racial and ethnic categories as well as people with certain medical conditions.

[Get To Know The Moderna Vaccine]

Several countries such as the United States, Italy, United Kingdom, and Singapore have also used the Moderna vaccine. According to a 2020 study in the United States, the efficacy rate of the Moderna vaccine reached 91.4% after 2 doses. This is a hope in the midst of Covid-19 transmissions in the states. Italy is also experiencing the positive effects of the Moderna vaccine. At least, cases of Covid-19 among adults in Italy in May 2021 decreased by 80%, five weeks after the first dose of vaccine was administered. One of the vaccines used is Moderna. However, it is important for vaccine recipients to supplement their vaccination with a second shot.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recorded possible side effects of the Moderna vaccine, such as pain, redness, and swelling in the arms, fatigue, headaches, muscle aches, chills, fever, and nausea. However, side effects usually only occur for 1-2 days after being vaccinated and will disappear within a few days, which is a normal sign as the body is building protection against the virus.

Requirements for Moderna Vaccine

For now, Moderna vaccination in Jakarta is aimed for Indonesian citizens aged 18 years and older who have a Jakarta ID card or live in Jakarta. You also no longer need to bring a doctor's recommendation letter to the vaccination location to get the Moderna vaccine if you don't have an autoimmune disease. But, if you do, don't forget to consult your doctor. 

Vaccination Sites That Provide Moderna Vaccine

After an increase in the quota, here is a list of vaccination locations that can serve Moderna vaccination injections. You can check the vaccine quota through the Jakarta Responding Covid-19 website. Please pay attention to the type of vaccine dose it provides.

That was information about the Moderna vaccination for the public in Jakarta. If you haven't vaccinated yet, let's get vaccinated first!
