Jakarta (ANTARA) - Indonesia currently has 10 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine available at its central and regional storage facilities, Health Minister Budi Gunadi Sadikin has informed.

"We still have around 10 million doses of vaccine stock. Around 60 percent of them are free vaccines given by foreign (countries') governments," he said while making a presentation on COVID-19 during a hearing meeting with Commission IX of the House of Representatives (DPR), which was followed on the DPR's YouTube channel from here on Tuesday.

Vaccine donation offers from abroad have kept coming, but the offers have been postponed to match the development in people's interest in getting vaccinated in the country, Sadikin added.

According to the minister's presentation, the country currently has 46,210 AstraZeneca doses, 3.14 million Covovax doses, 385,645 Janssen doses, 4.54 million Pfizer doses, 23,106 Sinopharm doses, and 1.93 million Sinovac doses.

Under the government's vaccination program, a total of 434 million vaccine doses have been provided to 203 million people as of Monday, the minister informed. Of the total, 170 million people have received two shots and around 60 million people have received the third or booster dose.

"Based on the target, we actually have reached 72.82 percent (coverage). However, based on the total population, because many of the Indonesian population are youngsters that have not been included in the inoculation target, (we) have reached 63.24 percent (coverage),” he explained.

According to him, the COVID-19 vaccination rate in Indonesia has currently declined to 100 thousand people per day after previously reaching a peak of almost 2 million people per day.

The situation has occurred because almost all of the target recipients have received the full dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Meanwhile, the coverage of the fourth dose or second booster dose, which is targeted at health workers, has reached more than 285 thousand.
