AstraZeneca Shots Arrived Amid Lacking Vaccine Supplies
The Indonesian government would receive COVID-19 vaccines produced by AstraZeneca. The vaccine will arrive around the end of February. "At the end of February or early March, there will be 4.6 [million doses] of AstraZeneca vaccines," said President Joko Widodo in an official statement, Saturday (2/20).
The government is still discussing the AstraZeneca vaccine distribution procedure. The vaccine would be limitedly used only in one province, taking into account the supervision of people who have been vaccinated. This is because AstraZeneca vaccination is also carried out twice within 1 to 2 months period. "This is still being discussed at the Ministry of Health [Kemenkes] whether it would be limited to will a province to ease the management. This has not been decided yet," said Jokowi.
