Southeast Asian countries are racing to immunise their citizens against Covid-19. Singapore is the first in the region to start a vaccination program whereas Indonesia is the first to receive her vaccine shipment and began inoculating people as they struggle to rein in the worst coronavirus outbreak in Southeast Asia. One problem Singapore, like many other countries, will face is vaccine safety and hesitancy, preventing her citizens from coming forward for jabs. How will the various countries address these concerns as well as tackling the pace of vaccination, detailed efficacy data and the varying success rates of different vaccines? Can a country achieve herd immunity and relaxation of social distancing if the vaccine is given to the entire population? What are the challenges for logistic companies in delivering and distributing billions of doses to Southeast Asia – including issues such as certification, specialised vehicles and bespoke vaccine freezer boxes, location tracking and security and improved logistics facilities?
