The Head of the Buleleng Police Department, AKBP Andrian Pramudianto, confirmed that this is part of the effort to accelerate the Covid-19 distribution for children 6 to 11 years old in the Buleleng area.

Police officers were asked to deploy their personnel, using their trucks, buses, and cars to pick up the children and take them to nearby vaccination sites.

As the leader of this operation, AKBP Pramudita stated that this program was initiated as many vaccination targets live in remote areas and have limited access to the vaccination sites.

“Many of the children in the Buleleng area who need to be vacicnated were located in remote areas. Therefore, we helped the government by providing proper vehicles to reach those targets,” AKBP Pramudita said.

I am sad to hear this; with all the adverse side effects of these vaccines that have been reported and the next to zero harm Covid causes children this is borderline child abuse. You are going to harm a whole generation of Bali’s children.
