KUCHING: The Lundu district is on track to vaccinate 80 percent of its population to achieve herd immunity. 

Tanjung Datu assemblywoman Datuk Amar Jamilah Anu said as of Tuesday, a total of 11,182 individuals in the district has been vaccinated.

“A total of 11,182 has been vaccinated and this shows the good response from the local dwellers in Lundu to achieve herd immunity in the district,” she said on Tuesday.

Earlier, she visited the Lundu Community Hall vaccination centre (PPV) where she was briefed by its coordinator Dr Pariksit Anumanthan.

Jamilah was representing Federal Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives Minister Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar to present donations to the PPV.

Among the items donated were three wheelchairs, three standing fans, face masks, face shields, hand sanitisers and aprons for the use of the frontliners.

The donations which are worth RM5,000 will be for use at the Lundu and Sematan PPV.

Jamilah also donated two laptops to the Lundu district PPV along with jackets to volunteers consisting of Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Tanjung Datu Women and Youth wings along with non-government organisations (NGOs).

“As the elected representative, I will try to help and give support as much as possible so that the people of Lundu get vaccinated.

“I also call on those who have not registered in the MySejahtera Application to register or submit your names through your community leaders,” she said.

Also present were Lundu district officer Gustian Durani, Lundu community hall PPV coordinator Wan Noorhasdiee Wan Arbi, Lundu Malaysia Vaccine Support Volunteer (MyVac) chief Abunizam Morshidi and Tanjung Datu PBB Women chief Fatimah Abdullah.
