2. Over Half Million Indonesian Healthcare Workers, Vaccinators Get Ready for Covid-19 Vaccination
The Ministry of Health’s Secretary-General Oscar Primadi said the government continues to prepare healthcare workers for the country's mass inoculation program against Covid-19.
“As many as 440,000 healthcare workers and 23,000 vaccinators continue to prepare themselves for the Covid-19 vaccination across the country,” Oscar said in a statement on Monday, December 14.
He said that until December 5, the government provided training for 12,408 healthcare professionals from 21 provinces.
Meanwhile, the government has also organized workshops for 29,635 vaccinators from 34 provinces.
“So far, everything goes according to plan and InsyaAllah [God willing], we will maintain the numbers of healthcare professionals to cover all provinces,” he said.
He went on to say that besides the training program for the healthcare professionals, an effort to educate the public about the mass vaccination was equally important.
