Indonesia has pledged to vaccinate more than 208 million of its 270 million people, but less than 56 percent of that target population has received two shots of a Covid-19 vaccine so far, according to health ministry data.

Experts say vaccine hesitancy and logistics in the sprawling archipelago have slowed distribution.

Booster shots in Indonesia will be administered as half doses, in line with studies that confirmed the efficacy of that dosage, said health minister Budi Gunadi Sadikin.
