    TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe Jakarta Provincial Government is preparing an offline system for the registration and schedule of the COVID-19 vaccination for elderly people. The Deputy Governor for Civil Registry and Settlements, Suharti, said the city administration would help the process through neighborhood units (RTs) given that not all senior citizens could access the online system.

    “We use the data from the Jakarta Population and Civil Registration (Dukcapil) Agency and send the schedule to RTs. Then the RT administrations will inform the elderly about the vaccination time and places,” said Suharti in a written statement on Monday, April 12, 2021.

    The city administration is striving to hold inoculation for the elderly from one community unit (RW) in one location to ease the control in the field. Senior residents who have not received the schedule because of not having a Jakarta ID Card or having a different domicile from the ID card are asked to register online or report to RT heads.

    “We are communicating intensively with the central government team to obtain data on the elderly who have been vaccinated,” she added.

    The data will be integrated with the Dukcapil database to monitor those elderly who have not received the vaccine. “The Jakarta administration also coordinates with the National Police and the Indonesian Military (TNI) regarding COVID-19 vaccination for retired personnel,” Suharti said.
