MEIMELALI.COM: Bali Governor Instructed All Village Officials To Stop Providing Public Services To People Who Refuse The Covid-19 Vaccine.
Bali Governor, I Wayan Koster has instructed all the village officials across the island to stop providing public services to those who refuse the Covid-19 vaccine.
The instruction that was announced on Sunday (11/7), stated that officials in every village in Bali are required to mark their residents who refuse to receive the Covid-19 vaccine. “I instructed all village officials to stop providing any kind of public services to their residents who don’t support the vaccination program.” Koster said on Sunday (11/7).
As one of the efforts from the provincial government to revive Bali’s economy from the current crisis caused by the pandemic, Covid-19 vaccines are currently being distributed to the Bali population. From a total of 4 million residents, only 3 million are expected to receive the vaccine due to the physical condition of the other 1 million people. Koster explained that 85% of those 3 million people have received the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, while the other 25% have already completed the full vaccination.
In the meantime, Koster keeps on reminding the people to support the vaccine distribution, so the program can be finished on track. “I hope the people will follow all of the instructions, so we can end this pandemic sooner.” Koster added. He also warned the people to stop trusting the wrong information about the Covid-19 vaccine, although he admitted that some people might still get infected with Covid-19 post vaccination.
“People could still get infected with Covid-19 after the injection, but they would have a lower chance to develop heavy symptoms or even death from the virus.” Koster concluded.
