ACTNews, JAKARTA –Covid-19 is spreading faster than ever before. According to tvOne News, the Covid-19 Handling Task Force stated that DKI Jakarta, West Java, and Banten contributed 90.4 percent of the addition of positive cases in the previous week. Hence, mitigation efforts in these areas must be increased.
Vaccination is one of the most crucial tools for preventing the spread of this virus. Many parties promoted vaccines for children. The government gave vaccination to children not only because they are vulnerable to the risk of transmission but also the possibility of children's compliance in maintaining health protocols is low.
tvOne is one of the efforts to increase childhood vaccination rates. tvOne celebrated its 14th anniversary with a Gebyar Vaksin (Vaccine Festival) on Thursday (1/27/2022) in Sports Center, Matraman District, East Jakarta. This vaccine's distribution was aimed at children aged 6 to 11 years old.
tvOne collaborated with various parties in this activity, including Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT), which distributed 500 Waqf Rice to participants.
DKI Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan, who attended the event, praised the initiative. Vaccination, according to Anies, is a movement rather than a program. He hopes that many parties will join in this effort.

"The government prepared the vaccine. Various parties hosted the event by inviting the community. I am overjoyed because tvOne is holding a series of commemorations involving many communities today," Anies stated.
Dudi Hendrakusuma, Chief Human Capital & Operations at TVOne, explained it was the third vaccination. It was tvOne's contribution to ridding Indonesia of the pandemic. "Of course, I hope, with the assistance of ACT in organizing this event and the subsequent events, our event will be able to help the community, particularly the Indonesian people," Dudi said.
Dudi was also pleased to see the enthusiasm of the people. "We held the event in locations where people need it. This event could be run successfully because of ACT as one of the factors that contribute to this success also adds to the event's vibrancy," Dudi concluded.
