I was going to post a thread about this - I have a friend living near me who may be getting vaccinated via his apartment building management at some stage this week (he's on KITAS) - he only has vague details right now so I don't know if it's just a rumour. I was surprised when he told me about it.
After Jokowi's announcement last week about allowing businesses to vaccinate their employees I've asked my team to follow up about it but they have found nothing.

EDIT: My neighbour is completely mistaken about his apartment arranging vaccines - he had a big miss-communication with his wife

The way the rollout is going, just turning up at a hospital and joining the queue might be the best way to do it. I've heard of that working.

Right now there are signups for KTP holders, although my guess it's just for WNI KTPs?

Very likely that foreigners will have to wait until a private option becomes available, now apparently coming as soon as March.

KITAP holders get a KTP (OA) and according to immigration law are to be considered "penduduk Indonesia". By my thinking they should be treated equally with WNI for vaccination, and I suspect that will be the official status, though the opinion of local officials often rules the day.

I would hope that means you can choose which variant of the vaccine you receive.

Probably, but it's not like there is a glut of vaccines out there right now. Also, the gov't will have to issue an approval for any vaccine to be used.

From what I read so far Indonesia may have access to some Astra Zeneca stuff starting Q3 2021, and Sinopharm stuff a bit earlier. So far the government has said that the Sinopharm vaccine is slated for the "vaksin mandiri" (=paid option) program, but we'll see.

Another way to get early vaccination. Not sure if applicable for Kitas/kitap holder.


Sebanyak 39 orang tahanan KPK telah disuntik vaksin Corona. Termasuk mantan Mensos Juliari Batubara, dan mantan Menteri Kelautan dan Perikanan Edhy Prabowo.

Indonesia wants cheap. Plain and simple. China is the place they turned along with it's availability. I would guess they may even be looking at the Russian sputnik next. Any other vaccine would be in short supply and if they should get their hands on some and they go through the approvals, they will be expensive. Like i said before, Indonesia should have just paid attention to what is going on in the Vaccine world. If so they could have been early on the J&J list. It is a single shot and at 10% the cost of the others. No, just wait. Maybe someone will send us free ones.

That is true. According to SK Dirjen regarding vaccination, the jab is for penduduk not warga negara, which by definition includes wni and wna with valid stay permit.

However, because it not widely explained, I wouldn't be surprised if someone/ the media made a big fuss over it and post it on social media...

Some regulation on independent vaccination program has been released. Summarized in the picture below.

1) Intended for companies to immunize their workers and their families. The companies are paying for it, not the recipient.
2) May not use Sinovac, AstraZeneca, Novavax, or Pfizer, as those are already in the free program.
