KUCHING: A total of 300 residents of Asajaya district received their Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine at the Asajaya Sports Complex vaccination centre on Saturday (May 22).
Kota Samarahan MP Rubiah Wang, during her visit to the centre, expressed her gratitude towards the Health Ministry for setting up a centre to administer the vaccines in the district.
“The vaccination programme will be implemented in stages to ensure all eligible residents are jabbed.
“I also call on those who have made their vaccination appointment to turn up and get their jabs,” she said on Saturday (May 22), adding that those who failed to show up for their vaccine appointment would lose their chance as the allocated dose cannot be put back into storage once prepared.
The vaccine rollout in Asajaya involved a total of 100 frontliners, consisting of medical staff as well as personnel of the Civil Defence Force, People’s Volunteer Corps and Malaysia Vaccine Support Volunteers.
Members of the public who have yet to receive a call for their vaccination appointment can contact the Samarahan Division Health Office or go to the mobile vaccine registration counters at selected locations throughout Samarahan division.
Also present during the visit were Asajaya district officer Rais Ahmat and Asajaya Health Clinic family physician Dr Sarah Chew.
