According to Central Jakarta's Administration Assistant for Public Welfare M Fahmi, the residents are eligible to receive the AstraZeneca covid-19 vaccine.
"The recipents have to be 18 years old or older,” said the local official at his office on Friday.
Head of the Central Jakarta Health Office Erizon Safaro stated that the covid-19 vaccine roll-out aims to stop the transmission of the coronavirus that was first detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan.
He explained that eligible residents only need to go to a local public health center (puskesmas) to receive the vaccine.
"You can just come to the public health center and have the vaccine administered to you," said Erizon. (Translator: Natasha Celia)
