Indonesia’s Vaccine Program in Full Swing

Kicking its vaccination rollout up a gear, Indonesia’s COVID-19 vaccine program opened up to residents above the age of 18 in June to hit its initial target of administering one million jabs per day by the beginning of July. On 26 June alone, Indonesia’s Health Ministry administered 1.3 million doses across the country and has set a new target of administering two million doses per day commencing from the second half of 2021.

As of the end of June 2021, more than 30 million people in Indonesia have received their first vaccination while at least 13.6 million people already got their second dose. Bali continues to lead the vaccination efforts with 52% of its population having received their first injection and 17% being fully vaccinated already.

Indonesia, a country with 271 million inhabitants, plans to vaccinate 181.5 million people above the age of 18 by March 2022 to achieve herd immunity.
