A mobile PPV staff is seen briefing a resident.

JULAU: The mobile vaccination centre (PPV) at SK Nanga Jambu has made it easier for rural communities from Rantau Limau, Entaih and Ensiring to get the Covid-19 vaccine.

SK Nanga Jambu headmaster Wilson Lau said the mobile PPV had helped residents save on transportation costs as the journey to the nearest PPV would take at least three hours.

“I’m grateful to the state government and frontliners for their initiative in creating this mobile PPV.

“I would also like to say thank you for choosing my school as the mobile PPV location for the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (PICK) which took place on July 14.”

Meanwhile, Aga Rauh, 64, from Rh Kiroh, Rantau Limau,  expressed his relief at receiving his first dose of the vaccine.

“At first, I was a bit worried about the side effects but  apparently it wasn’t as bad as what the rumours said.

“Vaccines are safe for all, and I urge villagers not to easily believe fake news spread by irresponsible parties.”

Ngong Baki, 75, and Simon Jentau, 51, from Rh Jepun, Rantau Panjai Masit, also shared the same opinion and thanked the government and all staff involved in the programme.

The second dose will be given on Aug 4 at the same PPV.
