The Covid-19 pandemic poses a significant challenge in improving the health status of the Indonesian people. The covid-19 pandemic has impacted the refocusing of the health sector to the efforts to overcome the covid-19 pandemic. This effort includes issuing a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy for the community. The purpose of this study was to look at the management process for implementing the Covid-19 vaccination policy in Palu City. This research uses a qualitative approach with case study methods and data collection techniques by observing, interviewing, and reviewing documents. Research informants were selected using purposive sampling. Our variables were activities and procedures/activity standards (planning), resources and authority and responsibility (organizing), incentives and communication (actuating), as well as determining supervision standards, measuring implementation, and monitoring evaluation (controlling). The results showed that the management of the implementation of the Covid-19 vaccination policy in Palu City was conducted based on management functions, which included activities and procedures/activity standards (planning), resources, authority and responsibility (organizing), and determining supervision standards and measuring implementation (controlling) and well performed. However, incentives and communication (actuating) were inadequate. Some obstacles and obstacles must be improved, such as the government should work harder to increase public trust and awareness of the effectiveness of vaccines for health, take firm action against the spread of hoax news about vaccines, and generalize the number of incentives for vaccines—health workers who serve as the vaccinator team. The people of Palu City should take advantage of the development of social media and always have the latest information regarding the Covid-19 vaccination by accessing trusted sources such as the Ministry of Health, the World Health Organization, and the Health Office. The public should increase their awareness of vaccination for health reasons rather than administrative or travel requirements.
