An official from the Health Office has confirmed that over 1 million Bali residents have received the Covid-19 vaccine booster.
The Head of Bali Health Office, Dr. I Nyoman Gede Anom, confirmed that 1/4 of all Bali residents have received the booster shot as of April.
He also stated that the Covid-19 booster vaccination program has been optimized as the G-20 Conference is scheduled to be held in Bali this year. Dozens of international delegations are expected to attend the forum in Nusa Dua.
“Our target is to distribute the Covid-19 vaccine booster to 75 percent of Bali residents before we host G-20 Conference in November this year,” Dr. Anom said on Wednesday (13/4).
Officials have extended the vaccination sites’ operating hours in the hopes of providing booster shots to residents who plan to travel back to their hometowns during the upcoming Eid Al-Fitr holiday season.
Anom has set up temporary vaccination sites near several mosques in Denpasar and Badung.
“Following the current vaccine booster program, we expect to distribute the vaccine to 3,000-7,000 people daily before the end of this month,” Dr. Anom concluded.
