MIRI: A total of 1,636 Form One, Two and Three students of Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (SMK) Merbau received their second Covid-19 vaccine dose yesterday (Oct 16) at a vaccination centre (PPV) at Curtin University. SMK Merbau is the second largest secondary school in Sarawak

Transport Minister, Datuk Seri Lee Kim Shin cum Minister-in-charge of the Miri Division Disaster Management Committee and Senadin assemblyman, visited the PPV and expressed his delight that a vast majority of the students were turning up to receive their second dose.

Lee thanked Curtin University for allowing the students and parents to use its WiFi facility for free in order to do the registration and to scan the QR code. This had greatly helped to speed up the registration and vaccination processes, he said after the visit.

He also reminded the students to observe the standard operating procedures (SOPs) such as wearing face masks, observing social distancing and practicing the 3Ws (Wash, Wear, Warn) even after completing their second dose vaccination.

During the visit, Lee was accompanied by the Curtin University’s Chief Operating Officer Ir Pieter Willem Pottas and Curtin University PPV coordinator assistant, Dr Neo Ya Theng.
