Mall’s staff grateful to be vaccinated

People waiting for their turn to receive the Covid-19 vaccine at Vivacity Megamall’s industrial vaccination centre.

KUCHING: Staff members of Vivacity Megamall’s tenants are relieved and glad to receive their Covid-19 vaccine at the mall’s industrial vaccination centre (PPV).

The industrial PPV at Vivacity Megamall aims to vaccinate more than 2,000 management and tenant staff members of the mall, with the programme spanning four days this weekend.

This initiative is carried out in efforts to accelerate the process of vaccination in Sarawak.

Today (June 25), Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg paid a visit to several industrial vaccination centres (PPVs) here to observe their operations, including the one at Vivacity Megamall.

New Sarawak Tribune also had the opportunity to speak with a few vaccine recipients regarding the programme.

I would like to thank Vivacity Megamall for organising this programme. As retailers, we are also at the frontlines interacting directly with the public. As for the government’s vaccination programme, I feel that Sarawak is doing well. It is faster and more of our citizens are being vaccinated at a higher rate. I am proud of our government.

The Covid-19 vaccine is for our good and protection. I would like to urge the public to take the vaccine as soon as they can. This is so they can reduce the risk of infection. It can also prevent them from being severely sick if they do get infected with Covid-19.

Although I am scared of injections, I am very happy to receive my first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. I feel that the government’s vaccination rollout has been getting more efficient. I hope that members of the public will register for the vaccine for the sake of their health as well as their loved ones. Kita jaga kita. Stay safe.
