Southeast Asia’s ride-hailing giant Grab Holdings Inc. is setting up drive-through vaccination services across Indonesia in collaboration with the government to help the nation inoculate more than 180 million people against Covid-19.

The program, which started Sunday on the resort island of Bali, is the first to be done in Southeast Asia, Grab Indonesia President Ridzki Kramadibrata said in a virtual news briefing.
