Hello Mrs. Della, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com

Diphtheria is an infectious disease that attacks the respiratory tract, and this condition is highly contagious and can be life threatening. When 2017 was declared an outbreak of diphtheria infection in Indonesia (in 28 provinces) -- far more than in other countries, and many people died. Considering the danger and ease of transmission of diphtheria, Indonesia carried out ORI (Outbreak Response Immunization) / provided comprehensive vaccinations for all children, so that the death toll from diphtheria did not increase. It should be noted that 90% of cases of people/children with diphtheria have incomplete immunization status.

Vaccination needs to be carried out in full in order to optimize the work of the vaccine. Same thing with drugs, vaccines can give side effects but the side effects that arise are generally very minimal such as: fever that is not too high, pain in the hands, bruises from injections, and so on. These side effects can be managed by contacting the nearest health service. But keep in mind that the benefits of getting vaccinated far outweigh the minimal side effects. Therefore we recommend continuing the vaccination. If you feel doubtful / confused, you can see a general practitioner or pediatrician for further consultation.
