KUCHING: Bintulu MP Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing.is satisfied with the smooth vaccination process as well as the standard operating procedure (SOP) compliance at the industrial vaccination centre at Kelab Kidurong Bintulu.

He said vaccine recipients at the centre had to fill their health information forms at the designated counter and these would be brought to the vaccination area.

The MP said this after visiting the centre recently. He explained that it was set up in collaboration with Petronas and Columbia Asia hospital to expedite the vaccine rollout in Bintulu.

“About 5,000 staff from the oil and gas industry including from Shell and other contractors   will be inoculated at the centre,” he said in a Facebook post today (Wednesday).

Tiong added that the centre started operating on Monday and was the first industrial vaccination centre in the state for oil and gas workers.

“This showed that his vaccination efforts in Bintulu have been stepped up to another level,” he said.

Tiong also pointed out that Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas) had donated RM52,000 in equipment   to the Bintulu division health office to assist in the vaccine rollout in the district.

“As a show of support for the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (NCIP) in Bintulu, Petronas through its subsidiaries donated vaccine storage boxes, laptops and ‘queue up stands’ worth RM52,000,” he said.
