The government continues to accelerate COVID-19 vaccinations in various regions. Bandung City, West Java is no exception. In order to achieve herd immunity, the government targets a minimum of 70% of West Java residents to have been vaccinated by December 31, 2021. Seeing the urgency of this situation, YCAB Foundation together with Opportunity International Australia is currently holding a COVID-19 vaccination for the general public, specifically focusing on vulnerable groups and those with special needs, aged 12 years and over, entitled i-SERVE Vaccine in Bandung.
Since it was first initiated, from March to September 2021, i-SERVE Vaccine has successfully vaccinated 50,451 residents in Jakarta and Serang, including 1,200 people with disabilities. People from vulnerable groups are at greater risk due to difficulties to socially distance themselves and i-SERVE Vaccine understands the need for special services, to facilitate the needs of people with disabilities. This is why YCAB Foundation also provides free transportation for those in need to convince more people to get vaccinated.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, YCAB Foundation has collaborated with various social institutions and private parties to organize activities to provide vaccinations and distribute various needs for the Indonesian people.
i-SERVE Vaccine by YCAB Foundation is an ongoing project, moving to several areas in West Java namely PUSDAI, Amazing Art & Games, and 5 markets in Bandung. i-SERVE Vaccine can be held with the support of various parties including the Ministry of Health, Germas, West Java Provincial Government, Bandung City Government, Bandung City Health Office, Dekranasda Bandung, Persib Bandung, West Java PUSDAI, Bandung City MUI, West Java INDAG, Bandung City DISDAGIN, Perumda Pasar Bandung, Amazing Art & Games, and Hotel Salis.
In order to maintain the ongoing implementation of Community Activity Restrictions Enforcement (CARE/PPKM) level 2 in West Java, YCAB Foundation requires prior online registration before vaccine participants come to the vaccination center through the website to ensure quotas and vaccine availability. Participants are also required to bring proof of registration, and KTP. Prospective participants under 18 years old may use a Family Card (KK) or Child Identity Card (KIA) on the day of vaccination.
