    Jakarta: Indonesia has  received an additional 10 million doses of Sinovac bulk vaccines in the 17th shipment that arrived in the Soekarno-Hatta Airport in Tangerang, Banten province on Sunday.

    "Today we got another 10 million bulk vaccines, which means that 91 million doses have arrived in the country, to produce covid-19 vaccine," said Secretary-General of the Ministry of Health Oscar Primadi in a virtual press conference at Soekarno-Hatta Airport  on Sunday. Primadi emphasized that the government is always present to secure  hundreds of millions of doses of the covid-19 vaccine needed to carry out the vaccination program for  181.5 million Indonesians targeted to receive the vaccine.

     



    The procurement is carried out through various channels including bilateral efforts while continuing to explore with domestic development.

    "With this arrival, we continue to make efforts to distribute and then carry out a vaccination program so that it runs well," he said.

    He ensured that the vaccines used in the covid-19 vaccination program had passed tests to ensure their safety, and that way, an emergency use authorization could be issued by the Food and Drug Administration (BPOM).
