Colonel Mardika admitted that people are quite enthusiastic in joining the vaccination program. “Despite the implementation of the emergency partial lockdown from the 3rd to 20th of July 2021 to reduce Covid-19 transmissions in Bali, the vaccination program must continue so herd immunity can be achieved sooner to end this critical situation.” Colonel Mardika added.  Mardika explained that the military officers will help the Bali provincial government in supporting 70% of their population with completing the vaccination program before reopening the border for tourism.

I am very pleased to learn of Bali's success in rolling out its vaccination programme to its constituents. To me it is a step forward in the right direction for Bali and its peoples recovery and the tourist industry...upon which Beautiful Bali depends so much... not only Bali but also the many peoples of Indonesia. Thank you to the Bali Post for keeping those people, including myself/ whose interests lie at the heart of Bali. I wish every success to those who look forward and abide in Indonesia and on the Balinese island.

Who is first in Asia? Now they rise percentage for herds immunity in some European countries such Germany far above 70%, even 90% are discussed.

@Wayan Bo, it varies a bit by country, here in the Netherlands the goal is at least 80% of all people age 12 and above.

70% was more than sufficient for the original virus, but perhaps a bit low for the new Delta/Indian variant.
