Jakarta: To speed up vaccination for achieving herd immunity, the Indonesian Government has pushed for Gotong Royong Vaccination that is to be carried out based on risk zonation.
“Gotong Royong Vaccination and the priorities based on priority zonation have been reported. The priorities are also based on the companies that have registered to the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and certainly based on the type of industry. Labor-intensive (industries) are prioritized,” said Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Airlangga Hartarto here on Monday, as quoted by the Cabinet Secretariat’s website.
