KUCHING: Nearly 4,000 Covid-19 vaccine doses have been administered in the Engkilili area, said Industrial Trade and Industry, Industrial Terminal and Entrepreneur Development Assistant Minister, Datuk Dr Malcolm Mussen Lamoh.

He said of the total, 1,947 received their first vaccine dose while another 1,934 received their second dose by Friday (July 9).

“A total of 201 people who have been left out of the vaccine jabs are expected to receive injections at the Engkilili District Council hall vaccination centre,” he said.

The Batang Ai assemblyman said this when met after a recent visit to the vaccination centre to monitor the progress of the vaccine rollout, reported the Sarawak Public Communications Unit (Ukas).

Malcom added several clinics were opened to administer the Covid-19 vaccine injections.

These included health clinics at Nanga Delok, Nanga Stamang, Nanga Patoh, Nanga Kesit, Nanga Entalau and Skrang.

“Vaccinations at the listed health clinics will be implemented according to suitability and instructions from the Health Ministry.

“These include whether the clinics need to go to the longhouses or vice versa,” he added.

He also advised locals who had not registered for the jabs to register as soon as possible at the nearest district office.

“This vaccine injection is one of the ways we curb the spread of Covid-19 in addition to compliance with the set standard operating procedures (SOPs),” he said.
