JAKARTA, KOMPAS — More than 1 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines in Indonesia have expired at a time when many people have still not received their first and second doses. In fact, the government is racing to achieve its primary vaccination target amid the spread of the highly contagious Omicron variant.

From around 208 million targeted recipients, as of Wednesday (19/1/2022), around 30 million people still have not received their first dose while 86.7 million people have not received their second dose. First dose coverage in Maluku, West Papua and Papua is still below 70 percent.
