JAKARTA - Tangerang Mayor Arief R Wismansyah appealed to schools to coordinate with parents regarding the implementation of vaccinations for elementary students starting October 18, 2021.

"Schools can coordinate with parents to prepare their children's conditions before receiving the vaccine. So that children are not worried or afraid of being injected and ensure that the child's condition is fit when vaccinated," said Tangerang Mayor Arief R Wismansyah in Tangerang, quoted from Antara, Sunday 17 October.

Mayor Arief further explained that the Tangerang City Government continues to anticipate the occurrence of positive case findings in the implementation of limited PTM through tightening the application of health protocols in the classroom and maximizing student vaccinations. "For that, we need the support and participation of all so that this effort can run optimally," he said.

Previously, the Tangerang Banten City Health Office stated that 5,305 elementary school students aged 12 years would be vaccinated from 18 - 27 October 2021.

The Head of the Tangerang City Health Office, Dr. Dini Anggraeni, said that this vaccination activity was an effort to suppress the spread and the implementation of face-to-face learning (PTM) was limited.

"The type of vaccine used is Pfizer. Implementation will be held at the district level in locations that have been determined by Dindik. In fact, the participants had already received the invitation barcode that had been sent by the Health Office through the school," she said.
