Get your vaccine jabs

Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar

KUCHING: Sarawakians should not be hesitant in getting their Covid-19 vaccine jabs, says federal Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives Minister Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar.­

He said presently, those who have not been vaccinated could walk-in to get their vaccines at any public vaccination centre (PPV) in the state.

“I would like to remind Sarawakians who have not been vaccinated, they now can go to any PPV on a walk-in basis to get your Covid-19 vaccination appointment.

“They can also continue to get vaccine injections on a walk-in basis as long as the vaccine stock is still available on the day,” he said in a Facebook post on Friday.

He reminded residents to bring their identity cards and accompanying medical records if necessary, to be handed over to the attending medical officer.

“With all the facilities provided, I hope the people of Sarawak do not hesitate to get their vaccinations.”

The Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) announced that all PPVs in the state would be accepting walk-in vaccinations for those without first dose appointments starting last Friday.

It said in a Covid-19 daily update that the Sarawak Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) had given permission for PPVs in the state to carry out vaccinations for those who have not received their appointments for the first dose of the vaccination.

Previously, walk-in vaccinations in the state were only limited to those living in remote and rural areas.

On Wednesday, SDMC advisor Datuk Seri Dr Sim Kui Hian repeated the call by the authorities for unvaccinated individuals to turn to any PPVs to get their jabs.
