Terawan said the simulation was done openly so that the public would clearly understand the process such as how the vaccine was injected. The simulation also aimed at providing the local governments a better understanding of how to carry out vaccination appropriately.
“Vaccination is in the global spotlight now. What we do [is monitored]. Therefore, we prepare for it and continue to practice so when the vaccine is available we know what to do with it,” the minister added.
Previously, President Joko Widodo has said that the safety and security of the people must be prioritized during the implementation of the Covid-19 vaccination. Therefore, the government is carrying out stages of scientific activity, which is mandatory to be followed.
“These scientific principles must be followed. We put a high priority on the safety and security of the people,” Jokowi said recently.
The head of state also said that all vaccines that will later be used in the Covid-19 vaccination program must be registered and approved by the WHO.
Jokowi estimated that the vaccination will begin at the end of this year or early 2021 as the government needs time to distribute the vaccines across the country once they are ready.
