Officials Accelerate Vaccine Distribution To Tourism Workers

The provincial government is trying to cooperate with residents by providing the venue, inviting each of the tourism workers to join the vaccination program and providing the vaccine itself.

“We deployed staff from the Health Agency such as the screening service, vaccine injector and observer while running this program” Made Indra added. He also claimed that the vaccination process has been running well, because they only distribute the vaccine for the people who have registered to prevent crowds.

Made Indra is targeting to distribute at least 200 doses of vaccines on Wednesday (10/3) due to the limited amounts of vaccine available. “We will observe the whole process today, and we plan to provide 500 doses of vaccines on Friday (12/3), but the implementation has to be running well like today,” Made Indra concluded. Meanwhile the Head of Bali Tourism Agency, Putu Astawa said that he really hopes that this program could reach more tourism workers in the next couple of months.

We’re optimistic that this vaccination program will bring a positive impact to our tourism sector to boost the economic recovery as soon as possible” Putu Astawa said.

It would make sense to vaccinate the expats too. The expats will be the first persons the tourist will come in touch with.
