Hospitals in several different regions of Bali have stopped their Covid-19 distribution due to lack of vaccine supply from the central government.


The Head of the Bali Health Agency, Dr. Ketut Suarjaya confirmed that many hospitals have no choice but to stop their Covid-19 vaccine distribution while waiting for more supply from the central government. “Some hospitals in Bali are running out of the Covid-19 vaccine, and I’m afraid that it might affect the plan to reopen the international travel corridor.” Dr. Suarjaya said on Thursday (29/4).

Suarjaya explained that his main concern is that this situation could bring a negative impact towards the plan to reopen the border that was expected to happen by June or July 2021. “It all depends on the vaccine supply from the central government, we’re always ready to work hard in distributing the vaccine to achieve herd immunity as soon as possible.” Dr. Suarjaya added. He also said that several hospitals in Denpasar such as Wangaya Hospital, Bali Mandara Hospital and Bakti Rahayu Hospital have closed their vaccination site due to lack of supply.

Meanwhile the Head of the Denpasar Health Agency, Ni Luh Sri Amini confirmed that several medical facilities in her area have been facing this problem. “This morning we could only distribute around 2400 doses of the vaccine to several different hospitals in Denpasar, and that’s obviously not enough.” Amini said on Thursday (29/4). However, she still hopes that the government will continue to prioritize Bali in distributing the Covid-19 vaccine so the economy can bounce back from the crisis when the international travel corridor reopens.
