The vaccination implementation run smoothly while still implementing strict health protocols.
As the COVID-19 pre-vaccination procedure in general, lecturers and education staff must also fill in personal data and the screening process, after previously being given a vaccination schedule by the vaccination organizer.
At the end, the lecturers and education staff will get proof that they have received the first vaccine period and will return to the specified schedule to get the second vaccine.
It is necessary to know that the administration of vaccines through vaccination activities, either by injection or drops into the mouth, aims at forming antibodies in the body or the immunization process that will play an effective role in preventing certain diseases in order to protect themselves against the risk of fatality and disease transmission.
There are many myths and hoaxes about vaccines so that public needs precise and accurate information in order to have a correct understanding and encourage people’s attitudes to not be afraid of vaccines. Hopefully, with this COVID-19 Vaccination can bring us all out of this Global Pandemic.
