As a group that is vulnerable to spreading Covid-19, 5.000 tourism, online transportation, and public transportation actors in Bali will receive the Covid-19 vaccine.
This vaccination is held at the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center (BNDCC) under the supervision of the Bali Provincial Government.
Vaccination is carried out in two ways, namely walk-in and drive-thru. Both of these methods are believed to be safer because vaccine participants do not need to get out or get out of the vehicle.
Including during the vaccine registration process, participants only need to submit their KTP identity document. The vehicle will be directed to the health screening zone. At this stage, a temperature, blood pressure check is carried out and some additional questions are asked.
If it is considered feasible, then head to the Covid-19 vaccine injection area. Then wait in the observation area, where there are health workers and a mini ICU ready if a certain reaction occurs.
This vaccination is the result of a collaboration between the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, Grab Indonesia, and Good Doctor Technology Indonesia.
“In implementing this vaccination, all components of the nation must be involved so that vaccination coverage can be accelerated and expanded,” said Minister of Health Budi Gunadi Sadikin based on a press release, Monday (1/4/2021).
The Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Sandiaga Uno, who was present virtually, believed that vaccination could help tourism in Bali recover quickly.
“The availability of vaccines continues to be a source of hope for people to return to their normal situation and encourage confidence that they can travel safely,” said Sandiaga.
On the other hand, the Governor of Bali, I Wayan Koster, appealed to all tourism actors to participate in the Covid-19 vaccination so that herd immunity will soon be formed.
“We urge you not to be afraid to be vaccinated because it is effective in suppressing the spread of the virus. Let’s together we support the national vaccination program for the acceleration of national economic recovery,” concluded I Wayan Koster.
