Officers from Bali Air Force helped officials park the airplane at the nearest Base Ops so that the package could be easily relocated before being transported to the Health Agency.

Meanwhile the Head of Bali Health Agency, Dr. Ketut Suarjaya said that these vaccines will be distributed to complete the second phase of the vaccination program which is targeted to police, military, government officials, journalists, market vendors, tourism workers, and the elderly.

This is all good news. I hope everyone in Bali takes up the opportunity to take the vaccine. It might be possible for visitors to return to Bali in 6 months if they have been vaccinated also. I've got my bag packed.
