President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)
Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

 

Today, I am pleased to inspect mass vaccination in Palu city, Central Sulawesi.

I learn that this vaccination is for the third, booster jabs, or the second (doses), but the majority is the third jab. We must be grateful and thank God that the spirit of public in receiving vaccine is higher than that in other province and other cities. Thus, it will protect us, protect the communities and us all from the spread of COVID-19, particularly Omicron variant.

As for hospital occupancy rate, it is lower than that in other provinces. We also must be thankful for this and we hope everyone stays healthy.
