Drive-through vaccination for elderly, OKU

Date:

KUCHING: The Mahligai Gading Lundu vaccination centre (PPV) provides drive-through inoculation services to elderly and the disabled.

Tanjung Datu assemblywoman Datuk Amar Jamilah Anu, in revealing this, said the service allowed ease of access to the Covid-19 vaccines and comfort for the group.

An elderly, Yak Ahmad Salleh, who is unable to sit for extended periods in her wheelchair, was administered the Covid-19 vaccine in her car on Saturday (July 3).

Jamilah said the PPV on Saturday inoculated about 430 individuals. 

“Of the 430 people who received their vaccine jabs today, 400 received their first Sinovac vaccine dose while the remaining 30 received their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

“Meanwhile, at the Sematan PPV, 280 residents received their second vaccine dose. They were from Telok Serabang, Telok Melano and the surrounding areas,” she explained.

Jamilah was met on Saturday after visiting the Mahligai Gading Lundu multipurpose hall PPV to monitor the vaccine rollout.

During her visit, she donated two wheelchairs and 100 boxes of bottled water. She also presented food and drinks to the PPV staff.

Meanwhile, Lundu Hospital director Dr Chin Shi How hoped that the vaccine rollout for the second vaccine dose would also go smoothly in a few weeks’ time. 

Also present were Lundu district officer Gustian Durani and Tanjung Datu Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Women chief Fatimah Abdullah.
