KUCHING: At the Normah Medical Specialist Centre Covid-19 vaccination centre (PPV), vaccine recipients do not need to go to the counters to get their shots.

Instead, vaccinators will administer the shots where they sit waiting for their turns. 

Sarawak Disaster Management Committee advisor Datuk Seri Dr Sim Kui Hian commended the private hospital for this procedure.

“Very happy to see innovative ways of giving vaccine early in the morning at 9 am.

“Vaccinators move while people sit in the same chair from registration to being vaccinated and observation,” he said in a Facebook post after visiting the Normah Medical Specialist Centre PPV on Monday (June 14).

He said it was important to continue to evolve the process of vaccination to improve efficiency and convenience.

“It is a challenging balance as we want to vaccinate as fast and as soon as possible now that the vaccines have begun to arrive in substantial doses every week.”

Dr Sim also revealed that on the first day of the vaccination at the Normah Medical Specialist Centre PPV, some 1,000 people who had gotten their appointments through the MySejahtera app had received the jab.
