BETONG: Some 249,000 eligible recipients in the state have yet to go for their Covid-19 booster jabs.

Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah said according to the state health department, 86.3 per cent of the state population had obtained the booster doses as of yesterday (Feb 27).

He said the jab was very important in order to be able to protect themselves.

“The booster dose is to strengthen your double vaccination doses. So, please make full use of the opportunities given by the government,” he said when officiating at the Parti Pesaka Bumiputera trienniel delegate conference of the Kampung Tengah Spaoh sub-branch at the community hall here today.

Uggah who is also the chairman of the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) said the current Omicron variant was very transmissible, where the state had recorded 476 cases today and 483 yesterday.

Meanwhile, Uggah also thanked voters here for their full support to him in the recent 12th state election.

He said although two other candidates had challenged him, they had decided to support him as the GPS candidate from PBB.

They knew that the GPS had a very good leader – the Chief Minister Tan Sri Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg who had proven himself to be a people centric, caring and visionary leader for all Sarawakians.

“They have wanted him to continue leading the state,” he said.

Earlier, Uggah, who is Bukit Saban state assemblyman, visited the RM6.2 million Spaoh waterfront park and the RM5 million Spaoh market which is under construction.
