    Jakarta: The Ministry of Health has greenlighted the Jakarta provincial administration's request to commence the third stage of the national covid-19 vaccination program.

    According to the local government, a large number of AstraZeneca covid-19 vaccine doses will expire this month.

     



    Moreover, the percentage of positive cases in Jakarta reached 7.62% in the past week.

    "This shows that the virus transmission in Jakarta Province is still high," said the Head of the Bureau of Communication and Community Services Widyawati, as quoted from Media Indonesia.

    In the third stage, the Jakarta provincial governmen could
    expand their vaccination target to everyone ages 18 and above. 

    However, the local government should prioritize vaccination towards healthcare personnel, senior citizens, public service officers, and other high risk groups.

    "The implementation and strategy of this acceleration depends on the policy in Jakarta," said Widyawati. (Translator: Natasha Celia)
