Good evening Mrs. Elli, thank you for the question.

For now, JE vaccine has been included in the pediatric immunization recommendations issued by the Indonesian Pediatrician Association (IDAI) and has also been recommended by the minister of health since 2017, because based on data in Indonesia in 2016, 43 cases were obtained. confirmed JE virus infection among 326 cases of inflammation of the brain that exists, and Jakarta is included in 9 provinces in Indonesia found to have JE infection, although not as an endemic province (the region with the highest number of cases) of this infection.
