Spokesperson for the Covid-19 vaccination at the Ministry of Health, dr. Siti Nadia Tarmidzi conveyed, it is possible that not only the market cluster could occur, but also the family cluster.
“It may be a market cluster, but those who will be infected are market traders. But if we look at it, it is not only traders who will have an impact, because from what happened in Tanah Abang, visitors can come from all areas around Jakarta,” said Nadia in a productive dialogue. virtual, Tuesday (4/4/2021).
According to Nadia, it is not impossible for visitors from various regions to be exposed to the corona virus. Then the person who is exposed to it can also be a source of infection when returning to his place of residence or even reckless to go home.
“That will have the potential not only to emerge market clusters, but also family clusters that can be in large numbers. Because we saw how many visitors there were in the market yesterday,” he said.
Even though the Covid-19 vaccination has been given to traders at Tanah Abang Market, Nadia reminded that this is not a guarantee of safety. What’s more, people who have been vaccinated may still pass the virus on to others.
In addition, people who have been vaccinated against Covid-19 may also be infected. It’s just that it is unlikely that you will experience serious illness. Because the body already has memory cells against the corona virus so that antibodies can form more quickly.

“Moreover, we know that the protection provided for severe symptoms even ending in death is very high, which is around 90 to 95 percent. But the risk of transmission or infection still exists in someone who has received the vaccine.”
