ACTNews, JAKARTA – The number of active Covid-19 cases continues to increase. Based on data from the Ministry of Health as of August 15, 2021, states that the total number of Covid-19 cases has reached 3,854,354 people, while the recovery rate has reached 3,351,959 and 117,588 people have died.

As a primary prevention effort in dealing with the Covid-19, Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT), in collaboration with the Provincial Government of Jakarta, held a mobile vaccination program. "Vaccination is essential to form herd immunity while reducing the level of illness and death when exposed to the Covid-19," said the Director of Covid-19 Medical Careline Services, Dr. Arini Retno Palupi.

This mobile vaccination activity was carried out for the first time in Pejaten Timur Village, Pasar Minggu District, South Jakarta, Saturday (8/14/2021). Since morning, Humanity Medical Services (HMS)-ACT Team has been preparing in the courtyard of An-Nur Mosque to vaccinate the residents of Pejaten Timur and its surroundings.

“Two types of vaccines, Sinovac and AstraZeneca, have been prepared. This vaccination is not only provided for ages 18 and over, but ages 12 and over are also allowed. Alhamdulillah, people are so enthusiastic,” said Dr. Arini.

This mobile vaccination activity involved various parties: Pejaten Timur Village Health Center, Pasar Minggu Police, the Civil Service Police Unit (Satpol PP) Pasar Minggu District, and the Indonesian Mosque Council (DMI) Pasar Minggu District.

Alhamdulillah, the mobile vaccination can run smoothly by adhering to strict health protocols. Insha Allah, in the future, there will be more mobile vaccination activities. Let's make the Indonesian people healthy again and safe from the Covid-19 pandemic," explained Dr. Arini.[]
