    The Covid-19 vaccination is also planned to be administered to hotel and tourism workers. "We'll start to move to other sectors besides the healthcare staff gradually. Hopefully, we'll soon vaccinate the general public" he added.

    The steps was taken based on the amount of doses received by the health department. The Covid-19 vaccine supply is not centered in Jakarta, but spread to other provinces.
