Indonesia Partners to Boost COVID-19 Vaccination Programme


An Indonesian tech unicorn recently supported the implementation of the COVID-19 Vaccination Festival for the elderly at the Otista Soreang Regional Hospital, Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. To help make the event a success, the travel-focused tech company used their navigational capabilities and provided transportation assistance for the mobilisation of vaccine participants (elderly) from 13 pick-up points in the Bandung Regency area to the Otista Soreang Regional Hospital.

The vaccination event was inaugurated by the Ministry of Health, Deputy Governor of West Java Province and the regent of Bandung. The Bandung Regency Government is targeting 1,000 elderly people to get vaccinated as part of an effort to distribute vaccines throughout West Java.

The tech company said that they are honoured to have the opportunity to contribute to the implementation of the COVID-19 Vaccination Festival for the elderly. They see this national vaccination programme as a shared responsibility and the tech company is committed to always playing an active role in ensuring its smoothness and success.

In addition, the tech company is aware that vaccinating the elderly is a challenge for the government and other stakeholders, so they hope that this support in Bandung Regency can help the government achieve the formation of herd immunity and national economic recovery.

According to the Regent of Bandung, only about 4.5% of the elderly have just been vaccinated, which is one of the inhibiting factors, namely because the distance is quite long and difficult for the elderly to travel.

The Ministry of Health and the Government of Bandung Regency expressed their appreciation to the tech company for taking an active role in helping the vaccination programme run smoothly by providing fleets to reach elderly people in Bandung Regency areas.

As reported by OpenGov Asia, the country’s health ministry recently announced a new partnership with an online health-tech platform and a ride-hailing unicorn. The health-tech service provider assists with the registration, scheduling of appointments, and setup of the drive-through centres. While the ride-hailing company supports the transport of those unable or unwilling to use their vehicles. Users can register online to access app related to the service.

The drive-through vaccination centre at the Jakarta International Expo in Kemayoran, North Jakarta, comprises four posts. Assistants are verifying IDs and registration status at the entry, and once cleared, visitors will move to the second post to undergo a health check, including blood pressure, oxygen saturation level, and history of comorbidity. Patients without problems are being ushered to the third stop where they finally will be injected with the Sinovac vaccine.

Recipients get the shots in their vehicles. The centre has six lanes for motorcycles and two for cars. Afterwards, everyone must wait at the last post for a 30-minute observation of possible side effects. If there is no problem, they can leave.

The health-tech company was previously running the same facility providing swab tests they said that they were able to finish the preparation in three days because they already have the infrastructure since last year.

Right now, the centre can administer around 600 jabs per day, but the health-tech said they will gradually increase the capacity to several thousand in the coming weeks. The company is assisted by the Hermina Hospital, which provides medical staff.

In similar cooperation, the health ministry teamed up with an international ride-hailing tech firm and an Indonesian on-demand multi-service platform and digital payment technology group to run a vaccination centre in Bali. Ministry wants to work together and create 100 more lanes for drive-through vaccination.

The Health Ministry said that the cooperation with tech companies is based on necessity and one of the groups that will be vaccinated in the second phase are public transportation workers, that is why they partner with transport-related tech providers.
