They included Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister’s Department (Native Customs and Law) cum Kakus assemblyman Datuk John Sikie Tayai; Samalaju assemblyman Majang Renggi; Tanjung Batu assemblyman Chiew Chin Sing and Bintulu district police chief Supt Zulkipli Suhaili.
They happily share their experience of getting their vaccine through the following comments.
Chiew Chin Sing
It doesn’t hurt at all. It felt like being bitten by an ant so I hope people aren’t afraid of it.
Datuk John Sikie Tayai
I didn’t realise the needle went in and I didn’t feel anything and so far, there is no side effect. I hope the people of Tatau district are not influenced by any negative speculations regarding this vaccine.
Don’t be afraid and don’t worry about receiving this vaccine because it does not hurt and does not give side effects. Thank you to the frontline staff of MOH for working hard to help fight the Covid-19 epidemic.
Supt Zulkipli Suhaili
I am more confident after receiving the Covid-19 vaccine injection to ensure my health is always guaranteed and at the same time be able to carry out my duties more effectively and confidently, especially when I am in the field. So, I urge the frontline staff and the community not to worry about receiving the vaccine injections.
