Head of Public Relations and Marketing Department at Vania Hospital, Dede Nurhasan Suryadi, said Wirjawan is the oldest person the hospital has vaccinated so far.
Dede hoped that Wirjawan could motivate the community, especially the elderly, to keep their spirits up.
“This could motivate others to get vaccinated because the elderly are quite susceptible to viruses. Vaccination is not dangerous because the purpose of vaccination is to protect the body from being exposed to the virus,” said Dede.
The hospital, he added, is targeting to vaccinate 120 elderly every day. So far, as many as 600 senior citizens have registered with the hospital.
