Indonesia has secured a supply of up to 60 million doses of potential COVID-19 vaccines from China and the United Arab Emirates, officials said.

The supply is part of the 290 million vaccines that would be made available for Indonesia throughout 2021, President Joko Widodo said during a cabinet meeting.

During a Chinese state visit last week, Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi and State-Owned Enterprises Minister Erick Thohir secured the supply of 50 million doses of a vaccine candidate by China’s Sinovac, to be delivered between November and March next year.

The first 20 million doses are expected to be delivered by the end of this year.
