Some 2.5 million Jakarta residents have not been vaccinated against COVID-19, Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan said.

“As of September 11, 10.3 million Jakarta residents have been vaccinated, while 2.5 million others have not,” Anies said at Al-Wiqoyah Mosque in Jagakarsa, South Jakarta, on Sunday.

Most of them have not been vaccinated because they are not willing to get vaccinated for various reasons, he said.

In addition, many of the unvaccinated residents are still registered as Jakarta residents, while in fact. they have changed their domicile, he said.

He said efforts will be made to persuade the unvaccinated residents to receive vaccination in order to complete the vaccination programme in Jakarta soon.

“So, if 100 thousand (residents) in Jagakarsa (have not been vaccinated) Insya Allah (God willing) they will be vaccinated soon. After that, we will vaccinate unvaccinated residents in other areas so the number of unvaccinated residents will come close to zero,” he said.

Meanwhile, Chief of the Indonesian Ulemas Council (MUI) Branch in Jagakarsa Sub-district Sulaiman Rohimin said his side has set up a vaccination centre to help the provincial government accomplish the vaccination drive.

He said almost 1,300 people come to the vaccination centre to get vaccinated everyday, surpassing the daily target of 1,000 people.
