Vaccination outreach programme gets good response

Date:

KUCHING: The vaccination outreach programme in the Demak Laut state constituency has been effective in ensuring that the residents are inoculated with the Covid-19 vaccines.

Demak Laut assemblyman Dr Hazland Abang Hipni said the programme, which entered its third week of operations, had garnered encouraging response.

“Residents who received the jabs were listed according to villages and houses. The names of those who will receive the vaccines have been prepared a week in advance.

“Until now, the system used is very systematic, orderly and no names were left out,” he said when met after visiting the Bako Health Clinic vaccination centre (PPV) on Saturday (June 26).

Dr Hazland said the implementation of the vaccination outreach programme had benefitted the residents and communities in rural areas with no access to transportation to get the Covid-19 vaccine.

A total of 240 residents in the Bako zone were vaccinated at the Bako Health Clinic on Saturday, bringing the total to 868 people who had been vaccinated.

Similar vaccination outreach programmes were implemented in Tanjung Embang involving four villages, namely Kampung Tiang Api, Kampung Beradek, Kampung Semilang and Kampung Beradek Cina.

Dr Hazland added that the vaccination process was also carried out at existing PPVs such as at the Borneo Kuching Convention Centre (BCCK) and Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas).

He said residents working in Sama Jaya would be vaccinated at the industrial PPV in the industrial zone which was officiated by Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg recently.

In the meantime, he hoped the community would wait patiently for their turn to get the vaccine and be ready if called for their appointments.
