Remarks of President of the Republic of Indonesia during the Inspection of COVID-19 Vaccination for Students of State Special Needs School (SLB) 1 Bantul, Bantul Regency, 10 September 2021, Yogyakarta Province
Date 10 September 2021
May peace be upon us all.
This morning, I inspected the vaccinations for approximately 375 State Special Needs School (SLB) students, which we hope (the vaccine) can provide a maximum protection for SLB students.
And the vaccination drive for students is the Government’s effort to expand vaccination coverage to control the spread of COVID-19, especially the highly infectious Delta Variant. As we may be aware, it is impossible for COVID-19 to disappear completely.Therefore, we must start preparing for the transition from pandemic to endemic and also start learning to live with COVID-19.
I think it is important that we must not be overly euphoric for we all have to be aware that COVID-19 is always stalking us, thus we need to remain disciplined in implementing health protocols, especially wearing masks.
That concludes my remarks.
I thank you. (GH/MUR)
