Transmission from animal to human and human to human is very limited. In view of this, as an effort to protect against COVID-19, various countries from all over the world have committed together by involving governments, biotechnology companies, scientists, and academics to be able to create a Covid-19 vaccine (Prompetchara et al, 2020). Vaccination is the provision of vaccines that are specifically given in order to actively generate or increase a person's immunity against a disease, so that if one day they are exposed to the disease, they will not get sick or only experience mild illness and will not become a source of transmission. COVID-19 vaccination is an important part of efforts to handle the COVID-19 pandemic which is comprehensive and integrated covering aspects of prevention by implementing health protocols, which aim to reduce transmission/transmission of COVID-19, reduce morbidity and mortality due to COVID-19, achieve group immunity. in the community (herd immunity); and protect the public from COVID-19 in order to remain socially and economically productive.
