Officials from Gianyar regional government are speeding up the Covid-19 vaccine distribution before they expire.
The Regent of Gianyar District, I Made Mahayastra said that he will accelerate the Covid-19 vaccine distribution in three villages of Gianyar which were appointed to be targeted as green zone areas before the international travel corridor reopens. “Four villages such as Sayan, Kedewatan, Petulu and Ubud village received 50,000 doses of vaccines recently. Although we have good amount of supply, unfortunately we don’t have enough medical staff to distribute the program,” said Mahayastra on Friday (19/3).
He stated that Ubud received a large amount of attention since the president’s visit on Tuesday (16/3) and was supplied with a large supply of vaccines. Mahayastra plans to create a better vaccination system to distribute the vaccine faster than the previous plan. “We have to act fast, because we were just informed that the Sinovac vaccine will expire” Mahayastra added. He planned to implement community based vaccinations to 33 Banjars from Ubud village.
“We will vaccinate at least 150 residents from every Banjar each day, so we will finish the Covid-19 distribution in 5 days before we continue the distribution to Peliatan village afterwards” Mahayastra concluded. Additionally, Mahayastra planned to distribute the extra amount of Covid-19 vaccines to other Ubud residents, apart from those four prioritized villages to create a healthier environment from Covid-19.

This is another complete fiasco by the Bali Government. They've had 12 months to prepare for a vaccination rollout then they fail when they get the vaccines. The tourism minister said the Bali government would vaccinate two million people by July. That requires 20,000 vaccinations per day. Bali had 300 new cases of Covid and sadly 8 deaths on 19 of March. Bali won't be opening anytime soon. They overpromise and underdeliver.
