3,240 elderlies and educators in Jakarta and Serang were successfully vaccinated through i-SERVE Vaccine, a vaccination program held by YCAB Foundation in collaboration with Puskesmas Kecamatan Kebon Jeruk, and Terra Clinic supported by Bali United, the Ministry of Health, the DKI Jakarta Health Service, the Government of DKI Jakarta, Banten Provincial Health Office, and Serang City Hospital.
In support of the government’s vaccination program to reduce the increasing number of COVID-19 spread, i-SERVE Vaccine initiated a free drive-thru vaccination campaign. Primarily serving the elderly and educators, these two groups have been made as a priority due to several underlying reasons. The elderly, categorized as those aged 60 years and over, have a weaker immune system, making them more vulnerable to COVID-19 transmission. As for the educators, with campuses soon to be re-opened for face-to-face learning, being vaccinated will ensure a safer and more comfortable learning process.
Serving 2,872 elderlies and educators, the vaccination program in Jakarta had 2 phases, each representing the 2 doses of COVID-19 vaccination. The first phase was held on March 25, 2021 to April 10, 2021 and the second on April 29, 2021 to May 8, 2021. The two phases of vaccination program took place in Klinik Cinta Anak Bangsa, Jalan Duri Raya Jakarta Barat.
Following this, another vaccination program was held in Serang City Hospital (RSUD Serang) on May 21-22, 2021. This walk-in vaccination program successfully administered 368 doses of COVID-19 vaccine to the elderlies.
Data from the Committee for Handling COVID-19 (Komite Penanganan COVID-19) and National Economic Recovery (Pemulihan Ekonomi Nasional) as of March 28, 2021 noted that more than 7 million Indonesians have received the first dose of vaccine and as many as 3 million have received the second dose.
Thank you to all vaccine participants who have entrusted and chose YCAB Foundation a means of vaccinating COVID-19 and to all supporters who made i-SERVE Vaccine program possible.
