For example, during less than three weeks, the number of Jasa Marga Group Roadsters currently vaccinated has almost reached 50%. We hope that the implementation of the vaccine in SVB, which has been going well so far, will continue smoothly, so that all Jasa Marga Roadsters will be able to get the first vaccine in no time, "Agus concluded.
