Merdeka.com – DKI Health Office Jakarta held a Pneumococcus Conjugated Vaccine (PCV) Immunization Kick Off event at the Kembangan District Health Center, West Jakarta and Kramat Jati District Health Center, East Jakarta, on Monday (12/9).
This event is part of the National Level PCV Immunization Kick Off activity held by the Indonesian Ministry of Health at the Talang Jambe Health Center, South Sumatra and in parallel carried out by all Regional Heads in each province.
For information, pneumonia is the main cause of death for infants and toddlers in Indonesia. Therefore, the government is committed to reducing infant and under-five mortality rates and preventing stunting caused by pneumonia through the provision of Pneumococcus Conjugated Vaccine (PCV) immunization in the national immunization program.
The Head of the DKI Jakarta Provincial Health Office, Widyastuti, said that the estimated target for the introduction of PCV immunization in DKI Jakarta in 2022 is 56,417 babies. As of 12.00 WIB, 302 children have been immunized with PCV.
“Immunization can be carried out at Posyandu, Puskesmas, government hospitals, private hospitals, clinics, doctors’ independent practice, midwives’ independent practice, and other health service facilities that provide immunization services. DKI Jakarta has prepared 5,100 locations for PCV immunization with a target of injecting 700 babies per day,” said Widyastuti.
Widyastuti also invites parents to take advantage of this immunization service so that children are protected from Extraordinary Events (KLB) or outbreaks of Diseases Preventable By Immunization (PD3I), such as Polio, Measles, Diphtheria and Pneumonia. [ded]
