“What we want to avoid is rushing in obtaining a vaccine that has no scientific data or from a manufacturer that has not prioritized safety standards. We cannot allow that to happen,” said Jokowi.

Jokowi has instructed his cabinet ministers to involve religious organizations in the country such as Muhammadiyah, Nahdlatul Ulama, and the Indonesian Ulema Council in socializing Indonesia’s Covid-19 vaccination plans.

Indonesia’s President has stressed the important role religious organizations have in elaborating on the benefits of a vaccine to the public.
