The South-East Asian country's Covid-19 caseload is among the worst in Asia, with more than 1.36 million infections and 36,800 deaths, although new cases have dropped significantly in the past month.
The government began injecting medical workers, civil servants and service workers in January, and 2.28 million people have received at least an injection of China's Sinovac Biotech's Covid-19 vaccine, government data shows.
About 38 million doses of vaccine produced by Sinovac have arrived in the South-East Asian country so far and 4.6 million ready-to-use doses of AstraZeneca's vaccine will arrive this month, Jokowi, as the president is popularly known, said in a televised statement commemorating a year since the country first detected the novel coronavirus on its soil.
"The acceleration of the vaccination is one of the keys to controlling Covid-19 transmission," he said.
The president warned that Indonesia needs to remain vigilant despite a falling number of new cases, but he urged people not to worry about a variant of the coronavirus, first discovered in Britain, that was recently detected in Indonesia.
Meanwhile, the Covid-19 cases in Indonesia rose by 6,971 within one day to 1,368,069, with the death toll adding by 129 to 37,026, the Health Ministry said on Friday.
According to the ministry, 6,331 more people were discharged from hospitals, bringing the total number of recovered patients to 1,182,687.
The virus has spread to the country's all 34 provinces.
Specifically, within the past 24 hours, West Java recorded 1,786 new cases, Jakarta 1,159, Central Java 949, Banten 515 and East Java 404. - Xinhua
