This is a situation during Covid-19 vaccination at Istora Senayan, Jakarta, on Friday (26/2/2021). Athletes participated in the campaign on the importance of vaccination. The athletes have not experienced any negative effects after getting a vaccine shot. They are happy to receive the vaccine because it increases immunity and confidence for training and competition. They hope the vaccination marks a start for the recovery of sports in Indonesia, mainly for national competition.

President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has asked all local governments, both in provinces and regencies or cities, to accelerate the Covid-19 vaccination drive. Until now, the vaccination coverage for priority groups, especially the elderly, is still very low.

JAKARTA, KOMPAS — After slowing down during the month of Ramadan and Idul Fitri holidays, efforts to carry out Covid-19 vaccination will be accelerated again. In July 2021, the government will further expand the targeted recipients to increase the vaccination rate to at least one million people per day.
