JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com - Indonesia surpassed a million Covid-19 cases a week after the nation launched a campaign to inoculate 70 percent of the Indonesian population. President Joko Widodo was the first to receive China's Sinovac vaccine to demonstrate its safety to the people.
Three million doses of ready-to-use vaccine and 15 million doses of Covid-19 bulk vaccine from Sinovac have arrived and distributed throughout Indonesia. The vaccination program aims to reach about 182 million citizens to create herd immunity.
Amid a global rush for vaccines, Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi and State-Owned Enterprises Minister Erick Thohir have secured supplies for potential vaccines from bilateral or multilateral cooperation.
According to the Health Ministry, Indonesia has secured commitments for more than 300 million doses of potential vaccines sourced from vaccine producers in China and western countries.
