Authorities from the Health Agency will start distributing Covid-19 vaccines to elementary school children by the 14th of December 2021.
The Head of Bali Health Agency, Dr. Ketut Suarjaya, confirmed that the Bali provincial government would soon start distributing Covid-19 vaccines to elementary school children.
“We will start vaccinating children 6 to 11 years old by the day after tomorrow,” said Dr. Suarjaya during a virtual meeting on Sunday (12/12).
Authorities from Badung and Tabanan, who previously planned to distribute the vaccine for elementary school children by January 2022, have to run this vaccination program earlier than expected. Following the latest Home Affairs Minister’s Instruction, the Health Minister recently instructed them that they’re required to start this program once Bali reaches 70 percent of their vaccination target.
A total of 398,743 elementary school children from Badung, Denpasar, Bangli, Tabanan, Karangasem, Jembrana, Gianyar, Buleleng and Klungkung are scheduled to receive Covid-19 vaccine from Sinovac. This vaccination program will be conducted in appointed medical facilities and schools across the island.
