    Jakarta: State-owned pharmaceutical firm PT Bio Farma is upbeat about fulfilling the covid-19 vaccine requirements to achieve the government's target of vaccinating one million people daily as of July 2021.

    "The domestic covid-19 vaccine stocks are sufficient to achieve the target," PT Bio Farma spokesman for covid-19 vaccination Bambang Heryanto noted in a written statement released on Thursday.

     



    Heryanto highlighted the commitment of the Indonesian government and Sinovac vaccine producer to providing 260 million vaccine doses to Indonesia.

    In addition, Indonesia will receive 11 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine under the COVAX facility, 50 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine through bilateral cooperation, and 30 million doses of the Novavax vaccine.

    Currently, Indonesia’s vaccinations had reached 716 thousand per day, Minister of Health, Budi Gunadi Sadikin, remarked after a limited virtual meeting with President Joko Widodo in Jakarta on Monday, which was broadcast on the Presidential Secretariat's YouTube channel.

    Sadikin spoke of his ministry’s close and continued collaboration with the military and police to realize the government’s vaccination target.

    Spokesperson for COVID-19 vaccination at the Health Ministry Siti Nadia Tarmizi affirmed that the government, through the health ministry, is cooperating with several parties for expediting the national vaccination program.

    "The involvement of private firms, state-owned firms, hospitals, professionals, military and police, as well as mass organization is aimed at creating as many vaccination centers as possible," she stated.

    Furthermore, the government will prepare several vaccinators and officers to raise public awareness of the importance of receiving vaccination in order to end the pandemic.
