Bali Governor Wayan Koster says to achieve herd immunity in Bali Island, his administration is aiming to vaccinate at least 2.8 million people in 100 days.
Mr. Koster hopes that they seek to reach at least 70 percent of the province’s population in Bali Island.
As information according to provincial government data, nearly 140,000 people have so far been vaccinated, and more than 44,000 of whom have received both of the required two doses since the province started inoculating people in mid-January.
Talking at a press conference in Denpasar, Koster hoped that more than 2.8 million people vaccinated as soon as possible since the official timeline began yesterday on March 23, and is slated to wrap up on June 30, 2021.
Bali will require about 5.72 million doses of vaccines, but the province currently has 710,480 doses ready to be administered, including 200,000 doses from AstraZeneca.
Bali reportedly has 716 vaccinators on duty, with thousands of others providing support in the mass vaccination program, comprising both health workers and non-health workers.
Indonesia has so far used only CoronaVac, developed by Chinese pharmaceutical firm Sinovac, but is beginning to administer AstraZeneca vaccines this week.
