The Bali Provincial Tourism Office and regencies and cities in Bali officially opened registration for covid-19 vaccination for all local tourism workers.
Head of the Bali Tourism Office, I Putu Astawa, explained that the opening of the covid-19 vaccination registration for all tourism workers was carried out after receiving direction from the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Sandiaga S Uno in several previous meetings.
“We received direction from the Minister, Bali tourism must immediately rise. One of the reasons is that all workers must become a priority for vaccines. This is also one of the world’s beliefs that all tourism workers in Bali have been vaccinated,” he said, Tuesday, February 23, 2021.
According to Astawa, after receiving these directions, his party held a meeting with all tourism stakeholders in Bali, from associations, hotels, restaurants, GIPI, destinations, and so on. In total, there are 48 stakeholders.
During the meeting, it was explained that tourism workers were one of the priority vaccines for Bali. After conducting the official meeting, Disparda Bali sent an official letter through 48 tourism stakeholders to forward it to its members and employees. The letter was signed by the Head of the Bali Provincial Tourism Office I Putu Astawa dated February 22, 2021.
“We are only carrying out the ministry’s directions. Regarding how to get vaccines, the Minister promised to lobby at the center so that Bali tourism workers also get priority vaccines to maintain world confidence so they can come to Bali,” he said.
Astawa also explained that registration is done officially through dispardabali-vaksin.com. Registration is carried out for the next week until February 28, 2021. The number of vaccine recipients is not limited because any number will be reported to the center.
Registration must be complete according to the application that has been prepared. Data must be by name by address, by NIK, and include the company or place of work concerned. All tourism workers are entitled to get the covid19 vaccine without exception, from Top Managers to gardeners or cleaning services.
“The question of the number is not limited. If the first phase is not covered, the second batch will be opened. Because the vaccine will be carried out in two stages. Whatever the quota is, we will report it to the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy,” he explained.
