MMR vaccine

I seem to be having a few problems finding a hospital or clinic with any stocks of the MMR vaccine.
I would prefer Bintaro or BSD but travel isn't that big a deal if anyone knows of anywhere closer.

You could try ypk mandiri in Menteng
My son had his jab there. But they are closed Sundays for doctors surgery

Called them as soon as I saw your post but they haven't had any stock for about a year.
Looks like I'll have to try to find a hospital that buys stocks from abroad but the many I've tried don't do that at the moment.

I suspect there's a lot more to this that meets the eye.

It might depend on the advice they recieve from their overseas advisors. The MMR is controversial for some so perhaps Indonesia is not sure what to do. I hope you can find it

It seems imports were officially frowned upon a year or so back in favour of local production but the hospitals tell me the factory has no stocks and haven't had for about a year.
Same story at every place.

This is clearly a large problem in Indonesia and one that's reasonably likely to create a very serious issue or millions if an epidemic starts, and one will if this isn't sorted out quickly.
Without putting too fine a point on this, whoever is responsible for this almighty mess is very likely to be just as responsible for a lot of pain and suffering in the coming years.
As far as I can tell, there isn't a single shot available anywhere in this country.

Found a place that brings it in from Singapore.
PM for Jakarta address.
Bonus. They speak English.

A measles outbreak has spread to two groups of the Orang Rimba tribe in Sarolangun regency, Jambi, who have been out of reach of the national vaccination program.

What national vaccination program? The stuff is close to impossible to get.
