KUCHING: Pantai Damai state constituents are encouraged to register for the Covid-19 vaccination through the MySejahtera application or through a form issued by the Resident’s office.

Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister’s Department (Islamic Affairs and Kuching North City Commission) Datuk Dr Abdul Rahman Junaidi stressed that vaccination was important to ensure the community receive additional protection from Covid-19.

He pointed out that there were residents who had problems registering through the MySejahtera app due to internet problems or because they did not know how to register.

“We hope the village leaders can help register the residents in their respective areas. Some  do not know how to register while some deliberately do not want to register for the  vaccination,” he said.

Dr Abdul Rahman, who is also the Assistant Minister of Water Supply, wanted all eligible residents in Pantai Damai  to register as vaccine recipients.

“This is because the Sarawak government will receive a large number of vaccines in the near future.

“If possible, let the residents in our area be the first to get the vaccines,” he said.

Dr Abdul Rahman also suggested that the health clinics in Kampung Buntal, Kampung Santubong and Kampung Telaga Air be made vaccination centres (PPV).

“It is important to ensure that we in Kuching can receive the vaccines quickly.

“The Sarawak government’s target is to register all eligible citizens before August 31,” he explained.
