“The meeting also focused on vaccination in Miri Division as well as efforts made to ensure that 80 per cent of Sarawakians are vaccinated through the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme by August.”

According to the Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force, 94,035 for the first dose and 16,742 for the second dose were administered in Miri District.

“37,260 for the first dose and 4,515 for the second dose were administered in Subis District.

“11,624 for the first dose and 4,364 for the second dose were administered in Marudi District.”

Lee reminded the public to always check their MySejahtera app to ensure that they do not miss their vaccination appointment.

“We want to emphasise this matter because many do not check their MySejahtera app daily. If you have registered, you need to do so to ensure that you don’t miss out on your appointment.

“For those who have received their first dose of the vaccine, please do not forget to check your MySejahtera notification on your second dose.”

The public can also review the status of their respective vaccination appointments on the Special Committee on Covid-19 Vaccine Supply (JKJAV) website at https://www.vaksincovid.gov.my/semak-status/

Lee also advised those yet to  register for vaccination to contact Miri DDMC  via WhatsApp at 011 59284348 or 011 59424290, and to provide details such as full name, identity card number, telephone number and complete address.

They can also register at any nearby health clinics or liaise with their respective community leaders or associations.
