How We Organize Ourselves

Vaccines save millions of lives each year. Vaccines work by training and preparing the body’s natural defences — the immune system— to recognize and fight off the viruses and bacteria they target. After vaccination, if the body is later exposed to those disease-causing germs, the body is immediately ready to destroy them, preventing illness.
As of 18 February 2021, at least seven different vaccines across three platforms have been rolled out in countries. Vulnerable populations in all countries are the highest priority for vaccination.
At the same time, more than 200 additional vaccine candidates are in development, of which more than 60 are in clinical development. COVAX is part of the ACT Accelerator, which WHO launched with partners in 2020. COVAXthe vaccines pillar of ACT Accelerator, convened by CEPI, Gavi and WHO, aims to end the acute phase of the COVID-19 pandemic by:
· speeding up theof safe and effective vaccines against COVID-19;
· supporting the building of ; and
· working with governments and manufacturers to of the vaccines for all countries – the only global initiative to do so.
Vaccines are a critical new tool in the battle against COVID-19 and it is hugely encouraging to see so many vaccines proving successful and going into development. Working as quickly as they can, scientists from across the world are collaborating and innovating to bring us tests, treatments and vaccines that will collectively save lives and end this pandemic.
Safe and effective vaccines will be a game-changer: but for the foreseeable future we must continue wearing masks, physically distancing and avoiding crowds. Being vaccinated does not mean that we can throw caution to the wind and put ourselves and others at risk, particularly because it is still not clear the degree to which the vaccines can protect not only against disease but also against infection and transmission.
“We are very grateful, Alhamdulillah, the vaccine is available, which means that we can immediately prevent the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak, but in order to start vaccination, there are still some steps [needed] from the BPOM,” Jokowi said on Sunday evening. The government is expecting another arrival of 1.8 million doses of the ready-to-administer Sinovac vaccine early next month. Indonesia also expects to receive 15 million doses of bulk vaccines, an aqueous form of the purified antigens, this year and 30 million doses more next year, according to Jokowi.
Based on the results of a survey regarding the government’s efforts to break the chain of the spread of the Covid 19 virus, out of 202 correspondents, 12.9% said the government had implemented 3M regulations. 4% of the government implemented 3T, 9.9% made PSBB regulations, 11.4% provided vaccines and 79.2% said everything had been implemented. This means that the public understands that the government has worked hard to break the chain of spreading the Covid 19 virus.
The data said that 58.9% of the people adhere to health protocols such as wearing masks, washing hands, and maintaining distance. People who still break the protocol are 41.1% of the respondents. This means that public awareness of the importance of health protocols is still low.
The data said that 61% of the citizens (123 respondents) were still breaking the rules of health protocols, which is not maintaining their distance. Moreover, 21.1% of the respondents are not wearing masks properly and 17.9% are not washing their hands appropriately. This means that there are still many people who neglect to keep following the rules of health protocols.
The data said that there are still many people who do not routinely do swab. The data said that 202 correspondents (63.9%) do not routinely do swab and only 30.7% do a routine swab.
The data said that the people are sufficiently obedient to this social restriction regulation as evidenced by a high percentage of 65.3%. However, 34.7% are not yet obedient to the rules. We can concluded that some of the citizens are still not following the rules created by government.
What have we already known about the topic?
We knew that COVID-19 has already existed in Indonesia for about almost a year in January 2021. The cases of COVID-19 keep increasing even though government and citizen have tried several ways to stop the virus such as following health protocol, creating rules of PSBB, limiting the activities of citizen in public places, closing the public places, etc.
What would we like to know more about?
We want to know more about COVID-19 vaccine because it is a new solution that government gives to citizen in order to prevent the spreading of COVID-19 virus.

In the second step, students formulated their own Central Idea and Lines of Inquiry using their previous inquiry questions. Moreover, students also planned their time in conducting this PYP Exhibition. Students set the time frame to help them maintain well-structured progress every week. After that, they also discussed their success criterias of this PYP Exhibition.
We have learned about healthy lifestyle. We learned that the choices we make affect our health and well being. We need certain resources for energy and growth. We also learned to be aware of the role of major food group in human development. All the learning focus on achieving a balanced lifestyle.

In Grade 3, we learned about human body system. The learning purpose is to know how effective interactions inside human body system contribute people health and survival. We learned how to take care of our body responsibly with regards to our health.
deeper understanding about the topic, students were asked to research about COVID-19 and vaccine. We discussed what they have learned from the books/articles during mentor meeting on Zoom.
In the first meeting of this step, we explored the SGD that related to our research topic. We agreed that our SDG is about …..
After that, in the next meeting we discussed about how to collect the data for our research. We agree to find the sources about COVID-19 Vaccine from government and medical personnel. To get data from the government, we interviewed the chief of SATGAS COVID-19 representative from NU, Bapak dr. M. Makki Zamzami. Moreover, to get data from medical personnel, we interviewed two doctors who work in a hospital, dr. Ahmad Faizal M.Sc, Sp.PD. and dr. Reno Ashaf.

After we interviewed the experts on this topic, we discussed the interview results. The data showed that there are steps to get the vaccine. Moreover, there is also a change in the requirements for vaccine recipients. The previous info, the vaccine can be given for those who in the age of 18-59 years old, however, the new requirement stated that it can be given to citizens start from 18 years old above.
The guest speakers also said that there is the infrastructure required to distribute the vaccine to the citizen. The vaccine should be kept at a cool temperature which requires proper health facilities to be a place for vaccination.
Finally, we decided to survey by using an online questionnaire to the citizen. This experiment aims to know how well the citizen knows about the vaccine and their willingness to get the vaccine.
Survey to the Community
Based on the data, we can conclude that the citizens know that the government has provided the COVID-19 vaccine as a way to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Based on the data, the public has already known that certain age ranges can receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
Based on the data, 80.7% of the respondents think that the vaccine recipients are 18-59 years old. Furthermore, 12,8 % of the respondents think that all ages can receive the vaccine. Moreover, the rest of the respondents think that only 18 years above that can receive the vaccine.
The data shows that 75,2% of respondents know that there are several steps that will be passed before receiving a vaccine injection. However, 24.8% of the respondents did not know it.
The data says that almost 93% of correspondents agree that vaccine is not the medicine that can cure COVID-19 patients. However, 7.4% of the respondents think otherwise.
The data says that only 3% (2 persons) of the respondents have received the vaccine injection. However, the rest 97% of the respondents have not received the vaccine.
Based on this data, 19% of respondents stated that they are not willing to be injected with the COVID-19 vaccine. The data of the survey said that some of the respondents do not want to be injected because they have not trusted the vaccine yet. It is due to a lot of misinformation about the vaccine in the media.
On the other hand, 80.9% of the respondents are willing to get the vaccine but they do not know how to get the vaccine because it is still limited.
After interviewing and conducting survey, we can conclude from the data that some of the citizens still do not get the sufficient information about the vaccine. This problem is one of the obstacles that make distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine has not run effectively. Therefore, we conducted a social experiment to know how well the citizens get the information about vaccine COVID-19 and how we can help the government to support the distribution of the vaccine. There are 101 respondents in this experiment that includes 56.4% of female and 43.6% of male respondents. The result of the social experiments is listed below.
Based on this data, 26.7% of respondents are 18-22 years old. Then, 54.5% of the respondents are 23-59 years old and the rest are elder (18.8%).
Based on this data, there are 101 respondents in this experiment that includes 56.4% of female and 43.6% of male respondents.
The data concluded that 78.2% of the respondents have not received the COVID-19 vaccine injection. However, the rest of the respondents (21.8%) have received it.
Based on this data, we can conclude that 78.5% of the respondents have not registered the COVID-19 vaccine injection yet. However, 21.5% of them has registered but they are still waiting for further information.
Based on this data, those who have not get the vaccine are still confuse how to get the vaccine. They said that they do not understand how to register for the vaccine.
The respondents who have got the vaccine (21.8%) said that they mostly got the vaccine from the place they work such as office, Kementrian, Puskesmas, School.
Based on this data, the respondents who have got the vaccine (21.8%) said that they got the information mostly from the place they work.
The data concluded that the respondents (77.2%) are still think the information about COVID-19 vaccine that government gives has not enough. It is still not clear.
The respondents mostly suggest the government to give the information from social media, especially Instagram and WhatsApp. Moreover, some of them also suggest to use TV, poster, RT/RW, and parents.
