Longhouse residents exemplify vaccination awareness

Date:

KUCHING: The community awareness of the importance of Covid-19 vaccines in Mupong, Bintangor was lauded by Corporate Affairs and Sarawak Public Communications Unit (Ukas) Assistant Minister Abdullah Saidol.

He said this was exemplified by residents from 13 longhouses in Mupong who turned up for their Covid-19 vaccine jabs at Sekolah Kebangsaan Mupong vaccination centre (PPV).

“Overall, it is very encouraging because the response given by the residents is very good, better than expected,” he said on Tuesday when monitoring the vaccination outreach programme at the PPV.

Abdullah also thanked the Divisional and District Disaster Management Committees for enabling the mobile vaccination programme to be implemented in rural areas.

He said he is confident that the vaccination rate of the state’s population can be increased by the end of the month with the ‘jab first, register later’ approach.

He also thanked the staff and volunteers who have played their roles in allowing smooth implementation of the vaccination process at the PPV.

Meanwhile, Sarikei Resident Felicia Tan Ya Hua said this is the fifth outreach programme that is held in the division.

She said the authorities are targeting to inoculate more than 300 residents through the programme.
