Several expats have been denied the Covid-19 vaccine at a vaccination in Ubud on Thursday (30/9).
The Head of the Ubud Police Department, AKP Made Tama confirmed that some foreign nationals who attempted to receive the Covid-19 vaccine during a vaccination program that was initiated by the Ubud Police Department at Puri Agung Peliatan Ubud were rejected for not having a permission letter from their Embassy which stated that they were allowed to receive the vaccine.
“Apart from local people in Ubud, we also distributed the Covid-19 vaccine to expats who have been staying in Ubud during the pandemic. But some of them were declined as they were unable to show the permission letter to receive the vaccine from their Embassy as a requirement in accordance with the Health Minister’s Instruction Number 23 2021.” AKP Tama said on Thursday.\
However, AKP Tama appreciated the enthusiasm of Ubud residents in joining the vaccination program especially in the area that is designated as a green zone area of Covid-19 transmissions. Although many people were enthusiastic to receive the vaccine, Ubud Police Department only provided 300 doses during the program that required online registration to prevent creating a crowd during the event.
“Participants registered themselves through an official website to fill out the registration form before joining the vaccination program that was operated by medical staff from Kenak Medical and nearby clinics.” AKP Tama concluded.
