Therefore, in the midst of the challenging COVID-19 pandemic situation, PT Bank Central Asia Tbk (BCA) is committed to supporting the Government in accelerating the vaccination program in Indonesia. This time, BCA is one of the banks implementing a mass vaccination program for Indonesia, supported by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia (RI) and the Financial Services Authority (OJK).

As is known, the financial industry is one of the essential industrial sectors that continues to operate during this pandemic period by always implementing strict health protocols in accordance with the procedures and provisions set by the government and the world health agency WHO.

Previously, BCA had carried out vaccinations both through government programs and mutual assistance programs for employees, employees' families and the general public. Until now, BCA has implemented vaccination programs for more than 40.000 participants throughout Indonesia. This of course cannot be separated from our commitment to fully support the Government's efforts in accelerating the vaccination process in Indonesia.
"This vaccination program is also a form of company responsibility to employees and their families who have been in the risk zone since they have to ensure that services for banking transaction needs to the community must still be carried out," Jahja added.
BCA also urges the public to continue to apply strict health protocols in accordance with the provisions set by WHO and the government, namely 5M; Wearing a mask, washing hands, maintaining distance, avoiding crowds, and reducing mobility.
