Last month, Vice President Ma'ruf Amin said that to achieve herd immunity by the end of 2021, the government has set a target of vaccinating 77 percent of the total Indonesian population or 200.8 million people.

“I hope that by the end of 2021, they will receive the vaccination to achieve herd immunity. I hope Indonesia to get 77 percent or about 200.8 million people vaccinated,” said Ma'ruf at that time.

Ma'ruf said that vaccinated residents can still get infected but they will be more resilient. “Therefore, I hope that all people will be vaccinated against Covid-19,” he said.
