On 22 October 2020, the Minister of Health (MOH) issued MOH Regulation No. 28 of 2020 on the Procurement of Vaccines for Corona Virus Disease 2019 (“COVID-19”) (“MOH Regulation 28”). MOH Regulation 28 is an implementing regulation of the Presidential Regulation No. 99 on the Procurement of COVID-19 Vaccine and Vaccination of COVID-19 (“PR 99”).

MOH Regulation 28 regulates on four main themes of COVID-19 vaccine procurement:  (i) types and amount of vaccine for procurement, (ii) procedure for procurement of vaccines, (iii) procedure for payment for vaccines and (iv) guidance and supervision on the procurement of vaccines.

One of the preliminary methods to check if a person has been infected with COVID-19 is a rapid antibody test. In addition, under COVID-19 Task Force Circular Letter No. 7 of 2020 currently, a rapid antibody or PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test result is a requirement for anyone taking public transportation for domestic (interprovincial or intercity) and international travel in Indonesia.
