4,000 industrial workers in bintulu to be vaccinated

Date:

BINTULU: About 4,000 industrial workers are expected to be inoculated at industrial vaccination centres (PPVINs) in the district here tomorrow (July 8).

Bintulu MP Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing said the PPVINs will be situated at the Sime Darby Plantation Sdn Bhd’s Lavang Estate and Rajawali Estate.

He said that a total of 2,044 industrial workers will be vaccinated at the Lavang Estate PPVIN, while 1,926 will receive their jabs at the Rajawali Estate PPVIN.

Tiong added that two companies, namely Shin Yang and Samling are still waiting for approval from the Sarawak Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force to operate as a PPVIN.

“Shin Yang PPVIN is targeting to inoculate 1,600 employees, while Samling PPVIN is targeting 1,000 employees,” he said in a Facebook post yesterday (July 6).

Tiong therefore called upon oil palm estate owners to actively cooperate with the authorities on the vaccination programme.

“The Bintulu Health Office is responsible for ensuring that all employees are vaccinated,” he said.
