BANJARBARU (TABIRkota) – The detection of a new variant of the coronavirus, Omicron in several countries have prompted strong calls to address vaccine gap, including in Indonesia.

A number of the country’s provinces, including South Kalimantan, still lag behind in reaching the goal of vaccinating 70 percent.

Epidemiologist of Banjarbaru’s Public Health Agency, Edi Sampana, said, the vaccination coverage in South Kalimantan, as of December 26, 2021, has not yet reached the 70 percent milestone.

“It consists of 65.01 percent of the first dose, and 38.68 percent of the second one”, Mr Sampana explained, yesterday.

Contrary to the province, there are currently four regencies and municipalities in South Kalimantan (Balangan, Banjarbaru, Banjarmasin and Tanah Bumbu) that have met the target of achieving 70 percent vaccination.

For that reason, Banjarbaru Municipal Government have been taking an action in order to help increase Covid-19 vaccinations of the province-level, by encouraging residents to get vaccinated.

Banjarbaru itself has hitherto surpassed 70 percent target, consists of 76.52 percent for the first dose, and 65.02 percent for the second dose. (sahrudin)
