SIBU: Sibu Divisional Disaster Management Committee coordinator Dr Annuar Rapaee was happy that the vaccination process at the Sibu Indoor Stadium went smoothly yesterday.
Met by reporters while inspecting the vaccination centre there yesterday (Monday), he said, “The centre is not crowded today and it is running smoothly and under control after the changes we made.”
Dr Annuar, who is also Assistant Minister of Local Government and Housing, said the changes were made after a meeting between the Divisional Disaster Management Committee, Resident’s Office, Divisional Health Office and related agencies managing the vaccination centre on Sunday.
“We are thankful that people listened to my previous suggestion to come to the centre only at the appointed time.
“Among the enhancements we’ve made is the addition of waiting time zones.
“For example, recipients scheduled to get their jabs at 9am are placed in one area while there are other areas for other recipients,” explained Dr Annuar.
He clarified that the Sibu Divisional Disaster Management Committee had made changes to vaccination centre by adding 13 tents, 860 seats, and 30 wheelchairs.
He revealed that more than 800 vaccine recipients who received their first dose on April 19 would receive their second dose of vaccine yesterday.
