|The nation is facing the mammoth task of inoculating two-thirds of its 270 million population spread across the world's largest archipelago.

Jokowi's vaccination Wednesday was followed by shots administered to the military and police chiefs, the chairman of the doctors' association as well as ministers, religious leaders and social media influencers.
