The Indonesian government has approved a private COVID-19 vaccination scheme, which will go hand in hand with the national programme, stated a ministerial regulation on Friday.

Companies will be allowed to buy vaccines procured by the states for their employees. However, employees and their families should not have to pay for the vaccines themselves.
