Since 13 January 2021, Jakarta citizens have already been able to get their Covid-19 vaccine. Currently, Jakarta has reached the second Covid-19 booster vaccination stage for the general public aged 18 years and over. The decision to begin Covid-19 vaccination is deemed necessary to reduce the rate of Covid-19 cases. Those who are interested in participating in this second booster vaccination must have already gotten their first dose of booster a minimum of 6 months before. To help you understand more about the current vaccination process, please see the following guidelines. 

Registration Procedure

To register for the vaccinationprogram at the nearest health facility, Indonesian's citizens are required to have a Indonesian ID Card and foreign nationals are required to have a vaccine certificate. You can directly come to the closest health facilities, either Puskesmas, hospitals, and other nearest vaccination locations.

Finding Vaccination Locations via Google Maps

You can also find the vaccine locationsthrough Google Maps. To do this, you just need to type relevant keywords like "Covid-19 Vaccination" on Google search. In addition to showing the points of Covid-19 vaccination locations, Google Maps also displays a reminder, that vaccination services in each hospital or Puskesmas can only be done by appointment and are limited to certain patients (patients who are already registered). In Google Maps you also see information about instructions for checking your schedule or vaccination list, before visiting the vaccination location.

Who Shouldn’t Take The Covid-19 Vaccine

Before vaccination, it is a good idea to check whether your condition meets the requirements to get the Covid-19 vaccine. Here are some groupsthat should not be vaccinated:

  • People who are sick;
  • People with chronic illness;
  • Individuals with a history of autoimmune diseases;
  • Covid-19 survivors who have not recovered in three months; 
  • Pregnant women;
  • People in the treatment of blood clotting disorders, immune deficiencies, and recipients of blood products/transfusions.

However, the current second booster vaccination is only available for those who are 18 years old and older. 

What to Prepare Before Vaccination

The three main things to note before vaccination are:

  • Register and maintain health protocols while at the vaccination site.
  • It is recommended to check your health condition. Make sure your body is fit before vaccination. This aims to determine whether there is a risk of disease, especially in comorbid patients. 
  • Learn the flow of vaccinations starting from registration, screening and medical examination, vaccination, and observation for 30 minutes. 
  • Prepare original and copy of the documents that must be shown at the vaccination site, Indonesian ID Card for Indonesian citizens or vaccination tickets for foreign nationals.

What To Do After Vaccination

After vaccination, there are several things that you have to do:

  • Keep your mask on when you're in a public place or meeting someone else. Next, keep washing your hands with soap until clean.
  • Avoid gathering and causing crowds, because crowded places pose a high risk of transmission. To avoid this, maintain your distance and stay at home when possible.
  • Stay aware of the symptoms of Covid-19, because being vaccinated does not mean you are free from coronavirus. Immediately conduct self-tests and isolation when making contact with people infected with Covid-19.
