Alhamdulillah, I have finally received my second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine last Saturday.

“Like any other people, I was excited when my first vaccine appointment was scheduled on May 17 under the second phase of the vaccination programme,” he stated.

Taib also shared his experiences during the vaccination process, including the 30 minute medical observation for any side effect after receiving the vaccine.
