SouthCity Assists South Tangerang Task Force in Covid-19 Vaccination
Spokesperson for the Covid-19 vaccine, Ministry of Health, Dr. Siti Nadia Tarmizi said “In total, it will take us 15 months, from January 2021 to March 2022, to complete the Covid-19 vaccination program in 344 provinces and reach a total population of 181.5 million people,” at an online press conference.
The 15-month vaccination will take place in 2 periods, namely period 1 which will take place from January to April 2021 with 1.3 million health workers and 17.4 million public officers in 34 provinces.
Right now, we are in period 2 which lasts for 11 months, from April 2021 to March 2022 to reach the target of vaccinating a population of up to 181.5 million people.
It is hoped that with the joint vaccine, the application of 3M disciplines (Wearing Masks, Keeping Distance, Washing Hands) and strengthening 3T (Tracing, Testing, Treatment) can effectively suppress the spread of Covid-19.
“We, SouthCity, give our highest appreciation to health workers and public officials who have been the first group with the government to assist in the implementation of vaccinations,” said Peony Tang as Director of SouthCity.
SouthCity also provided 100 boxes of food for the South Tangerang Task Force which was on duty in the implementation of vaccinations carried out in Pamulang sub-district, South Tangerang. Wati received this aid as a representative from South Tangerang District.
This awareness activity is not the first time for SouthCity, in April last year SouthCity together with Kadin and the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation raised 500 billion funds to support and care for the handling of the spread of the Covid-19 virus outbreak in Indonesia.
