Nevertheless, authorities are still waiting for the emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Monitoring Agency (BPOM) and halal certificate from the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI).
 
"We are ready. South Sumatra has received the vaccine. We also have prepared storages in all regencies and cities," Herman explained.
 
In a bid to achieve herd immunity, 181 million Indonesian people must get the vaccine.
 
Taking into account that one person needs two doses of vaccine, as well as guidelines from the World Health Organization (WHO) to prepare 15 percent for reserves, the total doses needed are approximately 426 million doses.
