Mobile jab team targets 2,500 people


KUCHING: The Tupong Mobile Outreach Vaccination team is targeting to inoculate a total of 2,500 people at Kampung Sagah and Kampung Sungai Tengah next week.

Its committee chairman Senator Dr Zaiedi Suhaili said that previously the team had vaccinated a total of 1,460 people at Kampung Kolong 2, and 960 people at Kampung Paruh.

Meanwhile, the one-day programme at Kampung Matang’s Datuk Daud Abdul Rahman Hall, Batu 10, Jalan Matang on Saturday (July 3), targeted to vaccinate 1,000 people of the nearby villagers.

“We will organise another programme at the same venue after 21 days for the second dose,” he told reporters during the vaccination programme at the hall today.

Zaiedi added there is also another mobile team that goes from house to house to vaccinate bedridden patients.

Meanwhile, Tupong assemblyman Fazzrudin Abdul Rahman said the team has taken several approaches to make sure the vaccination process runs smoothly.

“Firstly, we get the data on those who have yet to register via MySejahtera application; secondly, we gather data of those who have registered but yet to get the appointment, and thirdly is on eligible recipients who are unable to go to the vaccination centre (PPV),” he said.

He further explained that after all of these data were collected and followed by a discussion with the team, then only a decision will be made on which zones the vaccination programme will be carried out. 

“This is to make sure that no one is left from getting the jab,” he said.

Fazzrudin added from his observation, the vaccination programme has received an encouraging response from his constituents as compared to when the vaccination was first rolled out.

Earlier, Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari had made a visit to the hall to see the vaccination process there.
