Kimia Farma's President Director Verdi Budidarmo said in a statement here on Sunday that it has been the right time to run self-paid vaccination services as the number of the COVID-19 cases in the country tends to keep rising.
For the first stage, the company has readied eight clinics in six cities.
Budidarmo said the company would gradually expand its coverage, including in malls in big cities.
"After launching the Gotong Royong paid-vaccination by companies, Kimia Farma offers a new option for the public to get self-paid vaccination. We are ready to serve individually-paid vaccination in our clinics across Indonesia. For the first stage, the service can be obtained in eight clinics in Java and Bali," Budidarmo said.
The vaccination would be conducted by Kimia Farma's subsidiary PT Kimia Farma Diagnostika (KFD).
KFD managed 422 clinics and 73 laboratories in the country.
Meanwhile, acting Director of KFD Agus Chandra said the individually-paid vaccination would initially be conducted in two clinics in Pulo Gadung, East Jakarta, and Senen in Central Jakarta.
"Starting next Monday, six other clinics will be ready namely KF Blok M (Jakarta), KF Supratman (Bandung), KF Citarum (Semarang), KF Sukoharjo (Solo), KF Sedati (Surabaya) and KF Batubulan (Bali," he said.
