BOGOR, KOMPAS.com – A 104-year-old man of Sukasari was among hundreds of senior citizens who received the Covid-19 vaccine at Vania Hospital in Bogor, West Java on Tuesday, March 23.
Wirjawan was accompanied by his daughter, Indri, who previously had doubts about the health of her elderly parent. Indri and her other siblings thought that it was unnecessary due to old age.
“At the beginning, we were not sure whether he should get the vaccine due to his old age. But, my father was ready. He wasn’t afraid, he did not doubt as he is in good health,” Indri said.
“Finally, we take our father to get vaccinated so that he can keep healthy during the Covid-19 pandemic at his advanced age.”
She said that her father always thinks positively, eats and rest properly, and most importantly gives thanks to God.
“My father is very disciplined about how he runs his daily activities, starting from exercising, eating, resting, and worshiping at church,” said Indri.
She added her father has his breakfast routinely and likes reading and walking around the house.
