President Jokowi Dodo Received The First Jab Of Sinovac Biotech’s Vaccine

JAKARTA, GESAHKITA COM–Indonesia has finally kicked off Southeast Asia’s largest inoculation program against Covid-19 to curb its record increase in infections, using Sinovac Biotech’s vaccine.

President Joko Widodo received the first jab in a televised ceremony at the presidential palace in Jakarta on Wednesday, (13/01/2021).

Having worn his signature white shirt, President Jokowi Dodo had his blood pressure checked and body temperature as well as a short interviews commited by the presidential dokters  initially before getting an injection to his left arm as seen on the youtube channel youtube live casting.

As informed, Indonesia is facing the mammoth task of inoculating 181.5 million people, two-thirds of its population, across the world’s largest archipelago. It will prioritize 1.5 million health workers and 17.4 million public officers in the first round to be held until April, with other segments of the population subsequently receiving the jab through March 2022.

The procession of vaccination for Jokowi, as he’s commonly known, was followed by shots administered to the military and police chiefs, the chairman of the doctors’ association as well as ministers and social media influencers on Wednesday.

The nation is also under pressure to swiftly administer vaccines as repeated movement restrictions did little to slow the virus spread that’s worsened in January after the year-end holidays. Indonesia added more than 100,000 new infections so far this month, leading in Southeast Asia in the number of Covid-19 cases and deaths.

Regarding to the logistical challenge of rolling out vaccines across its vast archipelago, the government will also have to contend with reluctance among Indonesians to be inoculated. A survey released in November showed 65% of respondents were willing to be vaccinated against Covid-19, while more than a quarter were unsure. The government is shouldering the cost of the vaccines after the survey found only a third were willing to pay for the shots.(*)
