Moreover, vaccination is also carried out by professional medical personnel. More interestingly, the organizing committee provided a photo booth to support participants if they wanted to share memories during vaccine activities.

The COVID-19 vaccination program for the academic community is expected to accelerate the implementation of face-to-face learning in universities.

In accordance with the policy of the Ministry of Education and Culture, Research Technology (Kemdikbudristek), face-to-face learning is a mandatory option that must be carried out by educational units with a provision that educators have received complete vaccines.

This complete vaccination program for doses 1 and 2 is an effort by universities to succeed in the vaccination program launched by the government.

So, it is expected to break the chain of the spread of COVID-19 and form herd immunity. By implementing this vaccination, it is hoped that universities as educational institutions can be more prepared and optimal in providing services for students. (drn/Humas UB/ Trans. Iir)
