Coordinator of High Human Resources of LLDikti Region III Sri Mastuti said that she will also identify lecturers and educators who will receive the vaccines in Jakarta to ensure the smooth running of the vaccination program.
"We will collect their details based on the national lecturer identification number, special lecturer identification number, educator serial number, and education personnel identification number from the Higher Education database," Sri Mastuti explained.
The institutions appointed as the vaccination centers will establish their teams and provide training for the vaccinators.
Previously, the Covid-19 vaccine has been distributed to a total of 1,097 people comprising lecturers and civil servant educators on March 12 and 26.
