Indonesia Has Administered 15.1 Million Doses of Covid-19 Vaccines

The Indonesian Chinese community administers Covid-19 vaccines to 3,000 elders and 4,000 teachers in Bandung, West Java.  KOMPAS.com/PUTRA PRIMA PERDANA The Indonesian Chinese community administers Covid-19 vaccines to 3,000 elders and 4,000 teachers in Bandung, West Java.

Indonesia has administered 15.1 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines as of Sunday, April 11, following the distribution of 24 million doses of vaccines across the country, according to Health Ministry’s website.

Health Ministry spokesperson on Covid-19 affairs Siti Nadia Tarmizi said the figures covered the first and second doses of Covid-19 vaccines given to health workers, public officials, and the elderly with a daily injection capacity of 500,000 doses.

"Indonesia is ranked 8 out of 60 countries that have done the mass vaccination program. This is a great achievement, which is supported by the entire people,” Health Ministry’s official website quoted Nadia on Tuesday, March 13.

However, Nadia said, the vaccination coverage of the elderly is still low, which is only about two million people. The figure is lower than the vaccination coverage of public officers which reached 6.5 million people.

She stressed the importance of accelerating the vaccination coverage among the elderly because this population is at the most risk.

Therefore, she called on the community to help the elderly get vaccinated at the Covid-19 vaccination centers immediately.

"Elderly can get vaccinated anywhere without the need to adjust the ID card or be equipped with a certificate of domicile where the elderly are residing," said Nadia.
