The Central Jakarta Health Agency (Diskes) has noted that around 100,635 or 78 percent out of 129,019 elderly people have been vaccinated against COVID-19 until the end of March.
" The vaccination will keep being given, even though the set deadline ends this March 31"
Erizon Safari, Sub-agency Head of Central Jakarta Health said the percentage of this figure was based on data from the National Economic Recovery COVID-19 Committee (KPC PEN).
"The vaccination will keep being given, even though the set deadline ends this March 31," he expressed, Wednesday (3/31).
He stated that shuttle services for the elderly from the house to the vaccination site in eight sub-districts were effectively increasing the number of older people being vaccinated.
"One of the obstacles is access to the location. The shuttle service is quite effective," he stated.
