The Head of the Payangan Police Department, AKP I Putu Agus Ady Wijaya confirmed that the program to distribute Covid-19 vaccines in the rice field was initiated as the majority of the farmers in Payangan spend most of their time working in their fields. “The majority of Payangan’s residents are farmers, so we directed our officers to the rice field and farms to distribute the vaccine to them.” AKP Wijaya said Thursday (4/11).

AKP Wijaya also admitted that the number of unvaccinated senior citizens in Payangan is still considered high, as the majority of them were reluctant to receive the vaccine. “According to our data, most of the elderly people in our area were reluctant to join the vaccination program, so we had to come to their homes and their rice fields to check their health before distributing the vaccine on site.” AKP Wijaya added.

Meanwhile the Head of Payangan Clinics Technical Operation, Dr. Made Arisani explained that according to their investigation, the majority of senior citizens in Payangan haven’t received the vaccine due to physical illness and their reluctance to leave their farms. “We have successfully distributed the Covid-19 vaccine to a total of 115 people during this operation as we aim for herd immunity in our area in the near future.” Dr. Arisani concluded.

Guess they haven't got the memo that herd immunity is impossible with covid due to the leaky vaccines and variants 🤦‍♀️🙄

Is negative test sufficient to enter Bali or is a vaccine required?

Too bad the authorities refuse to give the vaccine to foreigners with KITAS that work in the tourism sector in Bali. You would think that would be a priority. They have gone so far as to hang a banner from one of the hospitals: If one person is not safe, then no one is safe, it says. Guess it doesn't apply to bule.

Forced vaccines = permanent harm to your citizens. Instead you should be giving out early treatment packets that include Ivermectin. I am sorry for the people of Bali. It will be years until we know the true harm these vaccines have caused the human race. 😭
