KUCHING: The vaccine rollout carried out by the mobile vaccination team at the Uma Seping longhouse, Long Bala, Sg. Belaga in the Murum constituency garnered a positive response from the residents.

Murum assemblyman Kennedy Chukpai Ugon said the programme since last week was well received.

“Uma Seping longhouse, Long Bala is the third destination and 93 people have received their vaccinations at the longhouse on Tuesday,” he said in a Facebook post on Tuesday.  

Chukpai lauded the mobile team’s commitment in carrying out the vaccine rollout in the rural constituency.

“I was able to see for myself every process, procedure and standard operating procedures (SOPs) during the vaccination by this mobile team. I admit it is not an easy task.

“I feel very proud and impressed by the commitment and seriousness of the Health Ministry staff together with the volunteers from the Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) strategic partners.

“I am also grateful for the encouraging response from the villagers who are ready and willing to take the vaccine,” he said.

Chukpai said on Tuesday, almost all the villagers who are eligible to receive the vaccine have received their first dose.

“On this occasion, I would like to thank the frontliners, especially the Sg. Asap Health Clinic staff, for handling the vaccination to the residents.

“They are very committed and efficient in the vaccine rollout together with volunteers, Belaga District Disaster Management Committee, community leaders and all parties involved.

“Together we pray that God will always give strength and good health to all our frontliners so that they can carry out their duties,” he said.

Chukpai hoped with the vaccination, the Covid-19 pandemic situation can be improved by curbing the spread of its infection.
