Authorities from Bali’s Marine Force have begun distributing the Covid-19 vaccine at Gilimanuk Port on Friday (6/8).
Denpasar Marine Force Commander, Colonel I Komang Teguh Ardana confirmed that as a form of support to the government in handling the Covid-19 pandemic in Bali, he initiated a vaccination program at one of the main entrances of the island on Friday. “Many people in the area showed enthusiasm in joining our vaccination program today at Gilimanuk Port.” Colonel Ardana said on Friday (6/8).
Ardana explained that some of the participants who received the Covid-19 vaccine at this vaccination site did it as a requirement before taking a ferry to Java. He also aims to distribute the vaccine to the senior citizens and children (ages of 12 to 18 years old) around the Gilimanuk area very soon. “This is the third time the Marine Force has opened a vaccination site and distributed the Sinovac vaccine to public residents.” Colonel Ardana added.
Prior to this program the Fleet Coordinator Commander II, Admiral Iwan Isnurwanto has instructed all of his units to support the vaccination program in the area around their base to create herd immunity in Bali’s coastal area. “I urge the people to always comply with prevention protocols such as wearing facemasks, carrying out physical distancing, reducing mobility, keeping our hands sanitized, avoiding a crowd and joining the vaccination program, so we can finally overcome this pandemic.” Admiral Iwan concluded.
