The tourism industry is one of the industries affected during the Covid-19 pandemic. Therefore, support is needed for the industry, which is by producing tourism experts with the best quality education. It can be supported by vaccination activities to support health conditions for both students and educators involved.
Vaccination for educators is one of the priorities for the Covid-19 vaccination program by the government. Vaccines are given to all levels of education in stages, both public and private, both formal and non-formal. This is also a priority for the management of Akpar NHI Bandung to provide vaccinations to all lecturers and educators, especially to be better prepared in terms of health protocols to face New Student Admissions (PMB) and also Face-to-Face Learning for the 2021/2022 Academic Year.
All educators in the Akpar NHI Bandung environment have participated in the first session of Covid-19 vaccination on April 21, 2021, and the second session on May 19, 2021, at the Eldorado Convention Hall, Bandung. The vaccination is fully supported by the BUMN Joint Vaccination Center (SVB BUMN) program.
“A total of 20 lecturers of Akpar NHI Bandung have successfully participated in the vaccination program for the first and second sessions with excellent health conditions so that we are getting ready to face the 2021/2022 Academic Year, especially if the face-to-face learning concept begins. We also do this as an effort to raise tourism through education, which is supported by lecturers who are physically and mentally healthy,” explained Idham Sakti Wibawa, S.E., MM. Par., Chairperson of the NHI Bandung Akpar Study Program.
Thus, all lecturers at Akpar NHI Bandung who teach at the Hotel Management with a specialization program of F&B Service, Room Division, Pastry, and Kitchen are increasingly determined to implement the best quality health protocols, especially after going through the vaccination process. It will increase the sense of security and comfort for fellow educators and students at the Akpar NHI Bandung.
