Go to PPV for your vaccine, teens not in school told


MIRI: Teenagers aged 12 to 15 who are not in school are urged to go to any public vaccination centre (PPV) here to be vaccinated.

Transport Minister Datuk Lee Kim Shin requested community heads such as Village Heads, Tuai Rumah and Kapitan to identify these children through a form provided to the respective District Offices.

“The Miri Divisional Disaster Management Committee (MDDMC) would also like to remind those who have been vaccinated to remain vigilant and to comply with the standard operating procedures (SOPs) for Covid-19 prevention by adopting the 3Ws (Wash, Wear, Warn) and avoid the 3S (Avoid crowded, narrow areas and chat at close range).

“The cooperation of everyone in the effort to curb Covid-19 is greatly appreciated,” added Lee, who is also the minister in charge of the MDDMC.

He said this during his visit to the public PPV at Eastwood Hall and Curtin University Hall in the Miri district yesterday (Sunday).

Lee revealed that the vaccination programme for those aged 12 to 15 years old in the Miri district started on Sept 25 and would continue until Sept 29.

It involved students from 18 secondary schools and 33 primary schools under the educational care of the Miri District.

“Parents and guardians should contact the schools to find out the schedule and time of vaccination.

“Parents or guardians must accompany their children who will receive the vaccination and must bring along a signed Consent Form,” he said.

Lee was pleased with the management of the Eastwood Miri Hall PPV as there was no congestion and visitors were satisfied with the vaccination process there.

He also commended the vaccination process in the Curtin University Hall PPV.

He said the atmosphere was more comfortable for the public now compared to its first day; it had improved its WiFi network and added the waiting areas after being advised by the MDDMC on Sept 25.
