      Video Advocacy “Together We Can Beat COVID-19”

      BA COVID-19 Project Indoneisa developed a short video that convey messages about the importance of strengthening local government commitment through a collaboration with multi stakeholder, aimed at reducing barriers and challenges on COVID-19 vaccination for elderly. This short video is expected to encourage the local government to look at the condition of the elderly in their respective areas and make efforts to accelerate the uptake of COVID-19 vaccination among elderly.

      The story revolves around a family who takes care of their elderly parents at home. The family is worried about their elderly parents who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19. Some of the doubts in their minds are that vaccination will actually worsen the health condition of the elderly, what if they get sick after the vaccination, why do the elderly need to be vaccinated, and many more. The family then consulted with cultural leaders, health workers, cadre, friends to talk about all the hesitancies and what should be done. After the consultation the family feel safe and confident to take their elderly parents to the vaccination centre (Puskesmas). Closing statement should be strong enough to encourage policy makers to take action on this matter “All leaders unite in call for elderly vaccination against COVID-19”.
