President Jokowi in Banten to Inspect Vaccination for Students
As part of his working visit in Banten province, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo Tuesday (21/9) inspected COVID-19 vaccination for students held at state senior high school SMAN 4 in the provincial capital of Serang.
“I am happy I can inspect mass vaccination today, especially vaccination for students in Banten province,” the President said.
The Head of State expressed hope that vaccination can be completed quickly so that students can safely participate in the limited face-to-face learning.
“It is heartening to see that Banten province has begun doing limited face-to-face learning. I saw that the vaccination has been carried out continuously and the percentage remains high. Keep up the good work so that all schools in Banten province can conduct limited face-to-face learning in a safe condition because the vaccine will give better protection,” he said.
On that occasion, a number of school principals reported the course of vaccination drive and face-to-face learning in their respective schools.
According to principal of state senior high school SMAN 1 Ciomas Serang Regency Aan Hernawan, his school is targeting 307 students to be vaccinated.
“That is the total of the remaining students because we have carried out vaccination twice in collaboration with the Health Center in Ciomas District. Alhamdulillah, face-to-face learning has started since last two weeks,” Aan said.
Meanwhile, principal of vocational senior high school SMKN 1 Cilegon Widodo said that his school is targeting 1,300 students for today’s vaccination.
“Regarding the implementation of face-to-face learning, we have carried out the learning system since two weeks ago, while still observing the health protocols with a limited capacity to 50 percent in four hours,” Widodo said. (DND/UN) (RIF/EP)
