“The tests [run by BPOM] showed that the AstraZeneca CTMAV 547 vaccine batch is cleared for use again,” she said, as quoted in the Ministry of Health’s website sehatnegeriku.kemkes.go.id.
Indonesia received the CTMAV 547 batch on April 26, 2021 through the Covax Program/WHO initiative. The batch, which numbered 448,480 doses, is part of the 3,852,000 that Indonesia is set to receive in stages.
The batch has been used to vaccinate military personnel as well as members of the public, most notably in the provinces of Jakarta and North Sulawesi.
