An elderly citizen shows a vaccine card after participating in the third dose injection program or the Covid-19 vaccine booster at the Kramat Jati Health Center, East Jakarta, Wednesday (12/1/2022).

The Covid-19 booster vaccination program for the elderly began at the Puskemas (community health center) in Kramat Jati, East Jakarta, at 9 o’clock in the morning on Wednesday (12/1/2022). But Ratna (68) had arrived much earlier, at 8:15 a.m. The Kramat Jati resident did not want to miss this invaluable opportunity to get her booster dose.

Ratna said that she had come on the advice of the district administration as well as on the invitation she had received through PeduliLindungi, the official Covid-19 tracking application. Ratna, who had received the Sinovac vaccine for her first and second doses, got a half dose of the Pfizer vaccine as a booster.
