However, said Minister Budi, the government would not precede BPOM approval, so vaccination would not start if it had not been released.

Minister Budi acknowledged that the cold logistics route for vaccine distribution was more complex than he previously thought.

Therefore, he asked the government and the private sector to help if later the distribution of 426 million vaccines encountered problems.

“When the time comes, later please let us help together,” he said.
