Mobile PPV boon to rural folk

Date:

KUCHING: The approach by the state government to set up mobile vaccination centres (PPVs) is a boon to rural folk.

Urban Development and Natural Resources Assistant Minister Datuk Len Talif Salleh said this allows residents of rural areas to have an easy access to the Covid-19 vaccines.

“The Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) state government’s initiative not only provides facilities to the rural community but also ensures that none of them are left out in the vaccination rollout.

“This effort can also help the country achieve herd immunity quickly,” he said in a Facebook post on Sunday (July 4).

Earlier today (July 4), Len along with Tanjung Manis MP Yusuf Abdul Wahab and Mukah Division Resident Hamdiah Bakir visited the mobile PPV at Stalun Community Hall in Tanjung Manis.

He said the Stalun Community Hall is another mobile PPV in the Tanjung Manis district which was set up to increase the number of vaccinations among rural folk.

“This is also to reduce their movement, as well as to save their time and money to receive the Covid-19 vaccine,” he said.

The Kuala Rajang assemblyman added that during the one-day vaccination programme, 158 individuals received their first dose of vaccine.

In a separate function on Saturday (July 3), Len paid a visit to the PPV at Kampung Selalang and presented a vital monitor machine to a Health Ministry representative there.

Also present during the visit were Tanjung Manis district officer Ismail Kasah; community leaders Pemanca Morshidi Moris, Penghulu Kalali Klen and Penghulu Maoh Bohom.
