PCR and Antigen Requirements Gets Removed, Passengers of Ships in Serui Increase

goodmorningpapua.com – A Head of Operations of PT Pelni Serui, Rais Akbar, noted that there has been an increase in passengers since the new policy regarding the abolition of PCR and Antigen requirements for travellers since March 8, 2022.

The increase in passengers, said Rais, was more towards the West than the East. “Especially to the west, but we still urge for Prokes (health protocols),” explained Rais

Meanwhile, the Health Service of Yapen Islands stated that it had not seen any increase in vaccination from the implementation of the new policy from the Central Government. However, vaccination services are still relatively stable.

“Since the issuance of the new regulation on March 8, the vaccine services are still stable and not too crowded, but last month there was an increase, but not very high,” said Head of P2PM, Frengky Numberi.

Frengky Numberi said vaccination activities were still being carried out, both at the Community Health Center (Puskesmas) and at the Yapen Health Office and several Health Facilities (Faskes) in the Yapen Islands.

“We provide Sinovac Vaccine, Astra Zeneca Vaccine for booster, namely Moderna too, so hopefully with the looseness for removing PCR and Antigen, there will be more people who want vaccines,” he hoped.
