Foreign Affairs Minister Retno Marsudi said this is the second batch of the Sinovac vaccine delivery for Indonesia, and that the first batch of 1.2 million doses arrived on Dec. 6.
"With this arrival, it means that there are already 3 million doses of Sinovac vaccine in Indonesia," Marsudi told a virtual press conference.
Health Minister Budi Gunadi Sadikin said vaccination is one of his main strategies to solve the pandemic, adding, "It would take more than 12 months to complete the vaccination program, so we always keep up to health protocols."
