During a press conference, Minister of Health Budi Gunadi Sadikin delivered the excellent news about the Covid-19 epidemic. He stated that Indonesia would continue to distribute Covid-19 vaccination doses to the general people.

Indonesia will continue to get 74 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine until 2022, according to ANTARA. As a result, the administration requires sufficient cold storage capacity to ensure the vaccination supply is preserved.

“Another 74 million immunizations will be ready before the end of the year. Around 15 million vaccines are due from early 2021 and will be sent after June to the end of the year, with another 50 million in government funds “Budi made the remarks during a brief meeting at the Presidential Palace on Tuesday.

These rich countries are providing vaccines to developing countries because they have excess vaccine supply.

Because vaccination is fast becoming a reality in Indonesia, grantees have decided to get the COVID-19 vaccine from the country. As a result, the vaccination can be used before it expires.

Budi went on to say that the authorities would also destroy COVID-19 that had been kept in the refrigerator past its expiration date. This is done to ensure that COVID-19 vaccine storage capacity satisfies demand through the end of 2022.

“We suspect there are COVID-19 vaccines in the fridge that have passed their expiration date. As a result, we suggest to President that it be destroyed in areas where immunizations have run out “Budi went on to say.

According to Budi, the financial and development supervisory agency (BPKP), the Attorney General’s Office, and law enforcement officials will destroy expired vaccines in compliance with applicable legislation.

President Jokowi issued an order to speed up the distribution of booster or third doses to the general population in order to ensure that vaccine refrigerators in each state are adequate to meet the other vaccines.
