The health ministry said on Sunday, noting that the batch consists of 448,480 vaccine doses that arrived in the southeast Asian nation last month, part of a delivery of more than 3.85 million doses.

Some of the doses have been distributed in part of the capital, Jakarta, and the province of North Sulawesi, the ministry said in a statement.
