“The total number is for phase one and phase two. In detail, there are 107,459 shots given in the first stage and 67,223 shots given in the second stage,” Riza said as quoted by Antara on Wednesday, February 24.
Hundreds of thousands of the vaccine have been given to health workers, traders of Tanah Abang Market, and elderly people.
Riza claimed that during the inoculation to the three groups, the city administration neither received reports nor complaints related to the post-immunization event.
