KUCHING: The RJ Group contributed supplies to  Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) recently.

Its chief executive officer Datuk Lily Lim said the contribution was a token of support towards Unimas’ mega Covid-19 vaccination centre (PPV) frontliners and volunteers.

“We are very thankful to all the frontliners and volunteers who have dedicated their lives in fighting the pandemic. We can all do our part by staying safe and getting our vaccines.”

During the visit, Unimas director of the Research, Innovation Enterprise Centre (REIC) Prof Dr Lo May Chiu showcased the QVac vaccine queue management system developed internally by Prof Dr Wang Yin Chai and his team to the RJ Group entourage.

“The system features real-time data collection, which includes tracking of vaccination appointments collected and rejected by their respective recipients.

“In addition, the system has been key to ensuring an efficient flow of operations from vaccine registration all the way to the end of the vaccine appointment,” said Prof Lo.

He noted that the Qvac programme allowed the Unimas PPV to increase daily administration of the vaccine easily.

“In the first two days, the centre was able to achieve 1,000 doses a day. However, the centre hit a milestone of 5,584 doses on June 25, after being fully operational in the span of a little more than a week.”

Lim applauded the effort done by Unimas. “We are very proud that Unimas is dedicating its teamwork and resources for the community. It is great to see that milestones are being achieved every few days.

“Its collective response towards the national immunisation programme is to be emulated. Unimas is truly an asset, proving themselves capable of large-scale operations in a sustainable manner in just a short period of time.”

Unimas vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Mohamad Kadim Suaidi and assistant vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Mohd Fadzil Abdul Rahman received the supplies on behalf of the varsity.
