TRIBUNBATAM.id - The Indonesian government for the first time received the arrival of 500,000 doses of Janssen vaccine in finished form on Saturday (9/11/2021).
This covid-19 vaccine is a collaboration support with the Dutch Government.
"For the first time, 500,000 doses of Janssen Vaccine from the Dutch Government, this is the third form of Dutch support and cooperation," said Foreign Minister Retno LP Marsudi, as broadcast on the Presidential Secretariat's YouTube channel, Saturday (9/11/2021).
Previously, Foreign Minister Retno said that Indonesia had received 657 thousand doses of AstraZeneca vaccine from the Netherlands as part of its dose-sharing commitment for 3 million doses.
On the same occasion, Deputy Minister of Health, Dante Saksono Harbuwono stated, in addition to the arrival of the Janssen Vaccine, Indonesia also received the arrival of Sinovac vaccine in finished form with a total of 2,075,000 doses.
In its implementation, Dante said, the Janssen vaccine will be used in a single dose.
"The Janssen vaccine has obtained an emergency use permit from BPOM on September 7, and will be used for the general public aged 18 years and over with a single dose of 0.5 milliliters intramuscularly," said Dante.
BPOM has previously issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) for Johnson & Johnson's Janssen Vaccine. Along with that, the UAE was also given the Convidecia vaccine produced by CanSino.
The head of BPOM, Penny K Lukito said, the issuance of the EUA had gone through a joint assessment of the National Immunization Expert Advisory Committee (ITAGI) on vaccine quality data that referred to internationally applicable vaccine quality evaluation guidelines.
"BPOM has re-issued the EUA for two new Covid-19 vaccine products, namely Janssen vaccine and convidecia vaccine," said Penny as quoted from the official BPOM website, Tuesday (9/7/2021).
