More Than 200 Million Indonesians are Required to be Vaccinated Against the Coronavirus

There are only three countries in the world where every adult is required to be vaccinated against the coronavirus: Indonesia, Turkmenistan and Micronesia.


Many other countries make vaccination mandatory for certain groups of people, such as health professionals.

In more and more countries, the debate is raging about whether or not a vaccination against the virus should be mandatory. So far, there are only three -very different- countries where this is the case.

At the beginning of this year, the government of Indonesia announced that all residents were required to get a shot. That is no small task because, with almost 270 million inhabitants, Indonesia is the country with the largest population after China, India and the United States. Most young people live there, but teenagers are now also being vaccinated.

About 40 percent of the population has been fully vaccinated, but that is very different in the large country. On the island of Bali, almost everyone has been vaccinated because they wanted to get international tourism going again as quickly as possible. As a result, Bali is now limited open to visitors from several countries.
