Only few severe vaccine side effects reported

Date:

KUCHING: Bintulu residents have been reminded to not fall for rumours perpetrated by irresponsible quarters regarding the safety of the Covid-19 vaccines.

Bintulu MP Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing said there had been very few serious side effects reported among recipients of the vaccines.

“A few sporadic cases are being investigated by the Health Department in order to analyse and inform the public of the actual causes.

“Unfortunately, we all know that social media is also rampant with false rumours, creating fake information and facts that erodes people’s confidence in the vaccines,” he said in a Facebook post on Tuesday (June 29).

Tiong stressed that vaccine recipients must report their medical conditions and ailments to medical staff during vaccination.

“Otherwise, the staff will not be able to give the correct advice.”

Meanwhile, he urged all those aged over 18 to register for vaccination as soon as possible.

“This is part of the country’s recovery plan. By vaccinating everyone, there will be a strong protective cover for us all so that we can go back to our normal lives and bring the economy back on track.”

Tiong said for Bintulu, authorities were also actively accelerating the mobile vaccination programme for the rural communities.

“We must ensure that groups that cannot travel long distances are not left behind.

“We hope that with more vaccine supplies, the efficiency of this programme can be greatly enhanced, to be completed in the shortest time possible.”
