According to her, not all residents can be vaccinated immediately, especially elderly. For those who have high fever, hypertension, asthma or poor health conditions, vaccine injection will be postponed.
Jatinegara Urban Village Head, Slamet Sihabudin explained, his side prioritized door-to-door vaccination service at RW 07 because the region is a densely populated area that is prone for COVID-19 transmission.
