Community Participation Crucial in Vaccination Rollout
As many as 17.9 percent of the respondents said they did not know how and where to register for vaccination while 15.9 percent of them said they had registered only to find out that the vaccination quota had been met.
JAKARTA, KOMPAS — The diverse conditions of society require different approaches to getting people to participate in the Covid-19 vaccination program. It is crucial to improve cooperation between community leaders and health workers.
In a recent survey on Covid-19 vaccination by Change.org Indonesia, Katadata Insight Center and KawalCovid.id, 60.5 percent of respondents expected active involvement of neighborhood administrators, locally known as RT and RW heads, in disseminating information on the pandemic. Information is also expected from non-government public information channels.
