MIRI: At the vaccination centre at Eastwood Valley Golf and Country Club here yesterday morning, 1,848 secondary students from four schools received their second Covid-19 vaccine dose.

The students were from Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (SMK) Luak, SMK Lopeng Tengah, SMK Baru and SMK St Joseph Miri. 

“I am happy to see that the whole process went well,” said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Lee Kim Shin cum chairman of Miri Divisional Disaster Management Committee (MDDMC) after he visited the vaccination centre yesterday.

“The process of administering the second dose is much more straightforward as there is no need to fill out a consent form compared to the first dose last time,” he added.

Lee also reminded the people in Miri not to feel too comfortable although the district was now in Phase 3 of the National Recovery Plan.

“Be cautious, take preventive measures and comply with the prescribed standard operating procedures (SOPs) at all times,” he said.
