He explained that the central government has prepared the number of vaccines needed for this program. “

Thankfully, the government has already provided large amounts of vaccines for Bali people, and now we need to add more medical staff before running the program. I’ve discussed this with Udayana University, Military and Police Officers to solve this problem” Sandiaga added.

He hopes that Bali residents continue complying with the prevention protocols to handle this pandemic together.

Additionally, 177 tourism villages across Bali are also expected to be a healthy tourism environment, as Sandiaga claimed that those villages have been complying with the strict implementation of prevention protocols while doing their daily activities.

That's great news to vaccinate two million people by July. That is only 19,000 vaccinations per day. That is achievable. So on these estimates. The entire population of Bali could be easily vaccinated by November 21. I've got my bag packed.
