“We thank the Health Ministry for providing the second vaccination for civil servants and the first vaccination for non-civil service government employees,” chief of the COVID-19 Task Force at the Social Affairs Ministry, Sonny W. Manalu, said.
The civil servants who received the vaccination included middle-ranking officials, members of ministerial special staff, and the technical team. The remaining were employees of the secretariat general, inspectorate general, directorate general of social protection and security, and directorate general of social empowerment, he informed.
“Tomorrow, (the vaccination program) will cover employees of working units and the directorate general of social rehabilitation, social education, training and counseling board, directorate general for the handling of the poor, technical operation units within the directorate general of social rehabilitation at the Social Affairs Ministry,” he said.
After receiving her second vaccine shot during Tuesday’s program, 28-year-old civil servant Tyas said she suffered no side-effects.
“Like in the first vaccination, I felt nothing but only soreness on the injected part of my body,” she added.
The vaccination of employees at the ministry was the result of cooperation with Ciputra Hospital Citra Garden City and the Jakarta Provincial Health Office, said Manalu.
