TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan confirmed that three million people in the capital had received Covid-19 vaccines. “Alhamdulillah, we passed this achievement yesterday (June 16),” Anies wrote on his Twitter account on Thursday, June 17.
He cited the vaccination data released by the provincial government. From the first and second stage of mass vaccination which targeted 3,000,689 recipients, the number of people who have been vaccinated in the capital reached 3,041,573, or 101.4 percent, as of June 16 at 10:00 local time.
Anies further called on all residents to immediately take part in the mass inoculation. “Those who have not been vaccinated, let’s register immediately via JAKI (the city’s mobile app) or corona.jakarta.go.id/vaccination.”
Vaccinated people, he added, will be allowed to be spectators of an inaugural match that will be held at Jakarta International Stadium (JIS) in Tanjung Priok, North Jakarta.
“Are you willing to be one of the audiences for the first match at JIS? Make sure you have been vaccinated against Covid-19,” the governor tweeted.
As reported previously, Anies Baswedan expected Jakarta to reach its Covid-19 vaccination target of 7.5 million people by August 17, 2021, which coincides with the country’s independence day. Thus, he targeted 100,000 people vaccinated per day.
