JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com - More than 250 Indonesians, including students living in Southern California, received their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine in San Bernardino County.

"They got vaccinated regardless of their immigration status and it was free of charge," said Saud P. Krisnawan, Indonesian Consul General in Los Angeles on Wednesday, April 14.

Held at the United Indonesian Seventh-day Adventist Church (UNISDAC), the vaccination program was organized by the Indonesian Consulate General in Los Angeles in collaboration with the government of San Bernardino County on Sunday, April 11.

Saud said the vaccination program was in line with the government of San Bernardino County's efforts to inoculate all levels of society and communities living in the area.

"Indonesian citizens and diaspora receive the Pfizer vaccine and are scheduled for their second shot on May 2 at the same place," said Saud.

The Covid-19 jab drive was held in San Bernardino County, which is home to many Indonesians in California. 

The California State Government provides a limited number of Covid-19 vaccines on a priority scale including medical personnel, law enforcement, the elderly, people with certain diseases, and other priorities.

Vaccination for the general public will be started on April 15.
