President Jokowi Signs Revised Order on Covid-19 Vaccinations

President Joko ‘Jokowi’ Widodo has inked a revised order on vaccinations to counter the Covid-19 pandemic on Saturday, February 13.

The revisions included new articles on vaccine recipients, making the vaccinations compulsory, and penalties for those resisting vaccinations, which will begin for the wider public next April.

“The Ministry of Health will determine and register members of the public who are eligible for the vaccine. If they are eligible, the vaccines are mandatory for them,” said article 13 of the order.

“Those who failed to get vaccinated will face penalties ranging from the curtailing of pensions, social aid or government aid, as well as fines,” the document adds.

However, article 14 of the order states that “the government will provide compensation for disability or deaths for those who are crippled or killed by the vaccine].” Indonesia aims to vaccinate over 180 million people before 2022 to achieve herd immunity against Covid-19.
