Jakarta (ANTARA) - Bank Indonesia (BI), the Financial Services Authority (OJK), and Health Ministry organized the COVID-19 second-dose vaccination for 7,500 employees in the financial services (IJK) and payment system (SP) industry as well as the public at the Indoor Tennis area, Senayan.

Today's vaccination is a follow-up of the first-dose vaccination given on June 16-17, 2021.

"Vaccination is a game changer for the nation’s economic recovery. Hence, BI continues to support the acceleration of vaccination in regions through the BI Regional Representative Offices by coordinating with local governments and related institutions," BI Governor Perry Warjiyo noted in his official statement here on Wednesday.

Warjiyo, Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of OJK Wimboh Santoso, and the Ministry's Director General of Disease Control and Prevention Maxi Rein Rondonuwu inspected the implementation of the COVID-19 second-dose vaccination.

This event was a result of synergy to bolster the COVID-19 vaccination program, so as to encourage herd immunity in all societal levels in accordance with the government's target this year, Warjiyo noted.

Until September 6, 2021, he noted that the synergy resulted in vaccination being administered to four million people across Indonesia.

Santoso stated that the OJK will cooperate with BI, the Health Ministry, IJK, SP, and other parties to boost COVID-19 vaccination in the hopes that the vaccination target of 10 million IJK and SP employees and the public will be achieved.

"Thus, the business of the financial services industry will become stronger and ultimately push the national economic recovery," Santoso remarked.

Earlier, Indonesian President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) had voiced his aspiration to see 70 percent of the population in each province vaccinated against COVID-19 by the end of 2021 to meet the goal of achieving herd immunity.

Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Airlangga Hartarto also highlighted that Indonesia was currently ranked sixth in the vaccination rate listing worldwide.

"Indonesia ranks sixth globally, but we must remain vigilant and try our best to expedite the vaccination rate," Hartarto stated during a press conference here.
