COVID-19 vaccination inequality hinders realization of national target

The government needs to encourage the acceleration of vaccination in areas that have not reached the maximum target for vaccination

Banjarmasin Member of the Expert Team at the University of Lambung Mangkurat (ULM) for the Acceleration of COVID-19 Handling, Hidayatullah Muttaqin, believes that COVID-19 vaccination inequality between regions had hindered realization of the national vaccination target.

“The government needs to encourage the acceleration of vaccination in areas that have not reached the maximum target for vaccination,” Muttaqin stated on Friday.

According to the expert team’s member, vaccination inequality occurred between Java-Bali and outside Java, as well as between cities and districts.

Referring to the Health Ministry’s data, 28-29 percent of the population had received complete vaccinations in the Java and Bali and Nusa Tenggara regions.
