Jakarta. The Health Ministry on Thursday (14/07) announced the names of 14 health facilities that have allegedly been administering fake vaccines to their patients. 13 of the 14 health facilities are located in Bekasi, just outside Jakarta.

The names of the private hospitals were revealed during a hearing at the House of Representatives, which had been urging the Health Ministry to announce the names since Wednesday.

The National Police announced on Tuesday that according to their ongoing investigation 14 health facilities have been using fake vaccines.

"We have obtained a permission from the police's criminal investigations unit to announce the names," Health Minister Nila Moeloek told lawmakers from the House's Commission IX, which oversees health and manpower affairs.

According to the document released by the ministry, the names of the 14 hospitals and their locations are:
