Cok Ace said that over 2 million residents in Bali from a total population of 4.32 million in 9 different regions across the island have received the vaccine. “We’re really thankful to hear this good news, and in accordance with the WHO’s standard, we could potentially achieve herd immunity once we distribute the vaccine to at least 70% of our population, so we’re almost there.” Cok Ace said on Wednesday (2/6).

Rentin explained that the officials have been aiming to distribute the Covid-19 vaccine to medical workers, senior citizens, public service officers and public residents. Despite the rapid Covid-19 vaccine distribution, Rentin still reminds the people to keep complying with prevention protocols. “Despite this achievement on our vaccination program so far, we still need to comply with prevention protocols such as wearing face masks, keeping our hands sanitized and reducing our mobility to avoid new transmissions.” Rentin concluded.

We also have tickets for July. We would like to spend about 4 weeks in Bali. Hopefully the borders will be opened. Have already moved last year to this year. Greetings from Germany.

International borders will be opened soon. It will be a big test to see whether Bali can handle the uncertainty ahead. Each country is navigating the reopening of their own respective international border with caution. Whatever decision Bali makes...the giant neighbor down south is watching closely and usually with pessimism.

1,325,407 + 724,324 is not 2,686,37. What am I missing here?

@Marc De Smet, the missing link could be the seniors who are still undecided to get vaccinated. Who knows...

@Marc De Smet, from the source article i believe it reads 2.6M have been distributed. 1.3M have received the first dose, and about 630k have received 2 doses, which would more or less make 2.6M in total.
