Bismillahirrahmanirrahim.

Assalamu’alamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,

Good morning,

May peace be upon us all.

Today, allow me to express my gratitude to the Governor and his officials in the province for organizing vaccination at community health centers (puskesmas), schools, and correctional institutions in 16 locations, simultaneously. I hope the vaccination program can be carried on in Lampung Province so we can immediately prevent the spread of COVID-19 particularly among children and students.

Representative of A. Yani Regional General Hospital, please take the floor.

Thank you, Mr. President. We, the vaccinators of Gen. A. Yani. Regional General Hospital, would like to report that today we will administer vaccines to 100 people.

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

A hundred?

Yes Sir, from the Metro IAIN (State Islamic Institute).

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Why 100, why not 1,000?

We will continue to conduct vaccination every day. We had held it yesterday, we will do it every day. We will do it tomorrow.

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

I understand, but why you only vaccinate 100 people? Why not 1,000 people per day?

Representative of Gen. A. Yani Regional General Hospital, Metro City, Lampung Province

Yes, Sir. We will increase the number. Yesterday, the instruction was only for 100 people.

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Do you have enough vaccine supply?

Yes, we do.

If the supply is more than enough, use it all immediately. Do use it immediately. You can ask for more. So, use it as soon as possible. Thank you.
