The vaccination was held in PYC’s office and opened by Mrs. Widyasari Pudja as the chair of PIPW KESDM as well as Mrs. Filda Yusgiantoro as the chair of PYC. Afterward, dr. Hera Bambang gave a brief explanation about the importance of diphtheria vaccination. She explained that diphtheria vaccination should be given periodically and is important for both adults and children. The vaccination was done in cooperation with Rumah Sakit Pusat Pertamina (RSPP) with more than 60 people vaccinated. With the provided vaccination, PYC and PIPW KESDM hope to contribute building the population immunity and to prevent the spread of diphtheria disease.
