The Branch Manager of Tempo Scan Pacific Ltd, Stephanus Ceno, the company that distributed the vaccine, explained that the 157,200 doses of Sinovac vaccines weighing around 367,8kg that arrived were transported to two different places in Denpasar, including Tempo Scan’s storage on Jalan Nangka and Kimia Farma’s storage in Renon.

Meanwhile, the Spokesman of Bangli Covid-19 Handling Task Force, I Wayan Dirgayusa admitted that the vaccine distribution in seven appointed green zones in the Bangli region was forced to stop due to lack of supply from the central government recently.

“We need at least 20,000 doses of Covid-19 vaccines in our area, but we have to wait until the vaccines are available again,” Dirgayusa said.
