BANDUNG, unpas.ac.id – Several elements of leaders and officials of Pengurus Besar Paguyuban Pasundan underwent the second stage of Covid-19 vaccination at the Secretariat Office in Jalan Sumatera No. 21 on Saturday (March 6th, 2021).
The Covid-19 vaccination within Paguyuban Pasundan was held in collaboration between UNPAS Faculty of Medicine and Bandung Health Office (lit. Dinas Kesehatan Kota Bandung).
Head of the Covid-19 Task Force of Paguyuban Pasundan, dr. Trias Nugrahadi stated that the vaccination was specifically for the elders. He thought that they had high risk of being infected with Covid-19.
“During our preparation, we have done a tight screening. Before being shot, series of test were carried out, including blood sugar test, blood pressure check, and history of disease,” explained Trias.
Participants who will be vaccinated are also advised not to eat too much in order to make the blood sugar in the stable condition. Apart from that, if the blood pressure is high, participants are directed to wait for 30 minutes and will be checked again.
“Usually, there are a lot of participants who are being stressed out, so their blood pressure rises and they have to wat about 30 minutes first. For those who have a history of diseases, such as heart disease, we will definitely reject it,” he added.
Generally, the participants will be starving and sleepy after being vaccinated. The other effects that usually appear are headache and stiffness in the arm. Therefore, before they are allowed to go home, they will first be observed for 30 minutes to see the side effects. They are also not allowed to eat during that time to avoid nausea.
The second stage vaccination in Paguyuban Pasundan are attended by 38 participants, including the Chairman of Pengurus Besar Paguyuban Pasundan, Rector of Universitas Pasundan, Secretary General of Paguyuban Pasundan and other leader staffs of Paguyuban Pasundan.
Prof. Dr. H. M. Didi Turmudzi, M.Si, Chairman of Pengurus Besar Paguyuban Pasundan, became the first participants to get vaccinated.
“There is no obstacles during the process [vaccination], because the whole process, including registration and vaccination itself runs smoothly. I am grateful to the Head of Bandung Health office for the attention to the elders,” he said.
Prof. Turmudzi also appealed to the public to jointly vaccinate Covid-19 for a better survival.
The event was also attended by the Rector of UNPAS, Prof. Dr. Ir. H. Eddy Jusuf Sp, M.Si., M.Kom., IPU. However, due to his blood sugar condition, the vaccination was rescheduled to the next month.
“My [vaccination] shot will be rescheduled around April 3rd. I need to reapply the form of vaccination,” Prod. Jusuf closed the statement (Reta Amaliyah S)***
