The COVID-19 Vaccine Car programme in West Java has been recognised as a pilot project by the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy. This programme aims to boost herd immunity and help the economy recover after the COVID-19 pandemic. The vaccine cars will begin their journey from November 13 to 23 and continue through Central Java before returning to West Java for the second route, according to the programme.

The Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy has deployed two vehicles to serve the local community, which were symbolically inaugurated on November 13 at the West Java Governor’s Office. People in Garut District, Tasikmalaya District, Tasikmalaya City, and Majalengka District will be served by one vehicle.

People in Bandung District, Subang District, Indramayu District, Cirebon District, and Kuningan District will be served by another automobile. The Vaccine Cars are aimed at those working in the tourism and creative economy industries. The ministry works with other organisations to assist the initiative, including the West Java Provincial Health Service, West Java Provincial Tourism and Culture Service, West Java Provincial Village Community Empowerment Service, and district/city officials.

We will provide vaccination services to areas with low coverage in vaccination. The vaccine cars might also go to traditional villages in West Java.

In addition to the vaccine cars, two other vehicles will be deployed to provide entertainment and encourage people to visit immunisation sites. “We hope that this program will be an initiative for all local governments. We will always continue to help. Together we develop West Java,” Expert Staff for Crisis Management at the Tourism and Creative Economy Ministry, Henky Manurung noted.

Indonesia’s vaccination programme seeks to offer free COVID-19 vaccines to the country’s 181.5 million adult population. While the extra funding will not be used to purchase vaccines, it will be used to improve the country’s vaccine deployment system’s readiness and support Indonesia’s overall health service delivery system.

Improved health care delivery, enhanced laboratory surveillance and quality control, and better communication and coordination for emergency response and vaccination delivery are all goals of this increased funding.

Improved surveillance systems and public health laboratory quality will aid Indonesia’s COVID-19 testing capacity and genomic surveillance capabilities, while improved communication and coordination for emergency response and vaccine delivery will aid in ensuring fair and equitable prioritisation of health services and vaccine distribution, as well as strengthening vaccine logistics and information management systems, and expand public risk communication to reach the entire population.

OpenGov Asia reported, for its second phase, the Indonesian government is collaborating with local tech companies to accelerate the process.

The country’s health ministry 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.
