Fundamental issues persist in Indonesia's COVID-19 immunisation campaign, despite the government's achievement of the so-called "milestone" of 100 million vaccinations, roughly one-fourth of the total injections required to fully vaccinate the target population.


Despite the fact that the objective of giving 100 million doses was met on Aug. 31, just seven months after the programme began, fully vaccinated people account for only a small portion of the total.

 

The distribution picked up speed in early June, but by late July, a large number of places had reported vaccination shortages, with many people reporting that they couldn't acquire their second shots on time.


The government has now promised to speed up the deployment, with the goal of administering 50 million additional doses this month alone.
However, issues such as vaccine inequality and the sluggish distribution of booster injections persist.
