Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing

KUCHING: The Bintulu parliamentary constituency service centre will assist constituents to register for the Covid-19 vaccination, said its MP Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing.

He said any individual who faced difficulty in registering for the Covid-19 vaccine injection through the MySejahtera application can seek the assistance of the staff.

“For example, those in longhouses who were born in our country but do not have an identity card, or those who have not received an identity card because they are adopted.

“This is as well as those have been assigned to areas that are illogical for vaccination, they can get help from us,” he said in a Facebook post today (July 1).

Tiong said while the group may not meet the existing vaccination target criteria, during the pandemic, the vaccines should be accessible to all.

“Everyone needs to be included in the vaccination programme to achieve the goal of herd immunity as soon as possible,” he said.

The MP said his staff will collect the information of individuals and submit an application to the Bintulu Health Office so that all levels of society can be vaccinated.

“The National Covid-19 Immunisation Program (NCIP) is one of the ways to effectively boost the National Recovery Plan.

“The only way to ensure the health of the community is to ensure that every individual has immunity to Covid-19 infections,” he said.

Tiong said relevant authorities must be more flexible in vaccination procedures to avoid any group being left out due to human error factors.

“To keep the pandemic curve in Bintulu as low as possible, the public needs to work together and carry out their responsibilities, including registering for vaccinations and adhering to the standard operating procedures (SOPs),” he said.
