Public buses, used as a coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccination venue, are seen parked outside the Madani hospital in Pekanbaru, Riau province, Indonesia, June 8, 2021.
REUTERS/StringerAn Indonesian city is bringing COVID-19 vaccines to its people with a growing fleet of inoculation buses, as the country faces a spike in infections after a major religious festival.
The government of Pekanbaru, capital of Riau province, says the buses have administered 12,000 doses of China's Sinovac vaccine and are giving more than 1,000 shots a day.
"We saw some people had doubts about getting vaccinated because of fake news," said district chief Said Ahmad Zamzami.
Only 11.57 million Indonesians have received two shots of the vaccines in use there: Sinovac, China's Sinopharm, or the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine.
