VP encourages collaboration to expedite COVID-19 vaccination

Vice President Ma’ruf Amin has pushed for multi-stakeholder collaboration from the government, academics, business actors, communities, and the mass media in a bid to accelerate COVID-19 vaccination in Indonesia.

“I welcome and laud the pentahelix collaboration that has been built, especially support from donors and sponsors, so that this vaccination program can be implemented,” Amin remarked while reviewing the Healthy Synergy Vaccination Center at The Media Hotel and Tower Jakarta here on Tuesday.

The government has encouraged various parties to support efforts to expedite COVID-19 vaccination, so that national herd immunity in Indonesia can be realized immediately.

Based on the Health Ministry’s data as of September 13, 2021, the number of COVID-19 vaccinations in DKI Jakarta was high. A total of 10.3 million people in DKI Jakarta received the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, while 7.1 million of them were administered the second dose.

To increase the number of vaccinations, the government continues to expedite the delivery of the COVID-19 vaccine to members of the public.

The Healthy Synergy Vaccination Center is organized by alumni of the University of Indonesia students (Iluni UI) along with the Indonesian Vertical Hospital Association, BAKTI Kominfo, and Media Group, with two thousand people being the daily target from July 22 to September 17.

The hospitals involved in the vaccination activity were Dr. Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital, Fatmawati Hospital, Sulianti Saroso Hospital, PON Hospital, Soeharto Herdjaan Hospital, Jakarta Drug Dependence Hospital, Persahabatan Hospital, Harapan Kita Heart Center Hospital, Harapan Kita Children & Mother Hospital, and Dharmais Cancer Hospital.

The Healthy Synergy Vaccination Center opens vaccination services for children 12 years and above, elderly, pregnant women, and breastfeeding mothers. Sinovac, AstraZeneca, and Moderna vaccines are being administered in these activities.
