Since it was announced at the end of last week, the enthusiasm of citizens to protect themselves from the Corona virus has been very high. As a result, there was a buildup of resident’s crowds and ignorance of health protocols.

Avoiding the crowds, a number of residents tried to arrive early. Some even came at 6 am, two hours before the vaccine process started.

As told by Sholeh, a resident of Batuaji. He came to Temenggung Abdul Jamal at around 7 am.

"Coming at 7 am, I got the queue number 871. The vaccine was around 11 am," said Sholeh.

He came with his family. The goal is to participate in the vaccine, in order to anticipate the danger of Corona.

When asked about the brand of vaccine to be injected into him, Sholeh shook his head.

"I don't know, the important thing is to be vaccinated," he said.

Vaccination service for Batam residents at the Temenggung Abdul Jamal Sports Center starts at 8.00 to 15.00 WIB.
