Bali Governor I Wayan Koster has instructed all officials to optimize the vaccine booster distribution as part of the supportive program to herd immunity. This is in anticipation of the influx of international travelers once the central government drops quarantine.

“I have instructed the officials to distribute the booster to at least 30% of the residents in 7 days,” Koster said on Saturday (5/3).

Koster has also improved the waiting period to receive the booster vaccine, from 6 months to 3 months. The vaccination program will be conducted through every Banjar and local community in all the villages across the island.

Koster even instructed the police and military officers to actively support this program as he plans to make this program a requirement before receiving public services from the local officials.

Meanwhile, the Head of Bali Health Agency, I Made Rentin, admitted that the current vaccine booster program is still far from reaching the target as the overall distribution rate in Bali is 20.74%.

Badung and Denpasar have reached over 30%, but the other regions like Buleleng and Karangasem are still far from finished,” Rentin concluded.
