Meanwhile, Gede Rai admitted that the number of senior citizens who were intended to receive the vaccine is still considered low in Denpasar. “I just want to remind the senior citizens to not be afraid of the vaccination, as the medical team will conduct a proper health screening before giving the vaccine to them.” Gede Rai added. He also said that Covid-19 vaccine distribution to senior citizens is one of the government’s efforts to reduce the overall mortality rate from Covid-19.

What will the Balinese younger section of the population get? Sinovac, Sinopharm or Astra Zeneca? Nonetheless as soon as the population is vaccinated and a certain herd immunity is reached, the international border may reopen again.

From reliable sources the segment of the Indonesian citizens living in Jakarta are now getting Astra Zeneca,the batch number that was in question was eliminated. Some willing expats are also eligible to be vaccinated in the recent ongoing vaccine rollout.
