Officials from Nusa Penida’s sub-district government has announced that the Covid-19 vaccine has become an entry requirement for its people in order to gain access to Bali mainland.

The Head of Nusa Penida Sub-District, Komang Widiasa Putra confirmed that this policy was initiated to boost the Covid-19 distribution that is still considered low in Nusa Penida island. “We were forced to implement this policy that will be starting on Friday (23/7) to increase the people’s enthusiasm in joining our Covid-19 vaccination program in Nusa Penida.” Komang said on Wednesday (21/7).

Komang explained that many Nusa Penida residents are still reluctant to receive the Covid-19 vaccine as most of them are afraid of the symptoms that might appear post vaccination. “Only 61% of our residents were vaccinated, while we need to reach at least 70% before achieving herd immunity from the virus.” Komang added. He also said that most of the people who haven’t received the vaccine are the senior citizen. He reminds the people to visit the nearby vaccination site in order to receive the right information about their physical condition through a proper medical examination by the doctor whether they could receive the vaccine or not.

Apart from the port as the main access to the mainland, Covid-19 vaccination certificate is also a requirement for Nusa Penida residents in order to receive any public services from the officials of Nusa Penida sub-district. “Apart from the entry requirement, people who refuse the Covid-19 vaccine won’t be able to receive any public services. And for the people who were physically incapable of receiving the injection due to some health issues must show a proof that is declared by a doctor.” Komang concluded.
