MIRI: Stadium Dato Lee Teck Fook, Riam Road Secondary School, now a vaccination centre, is expected to up its vaccine dose capacity to 2,000 per day if needed.

Sarawak Transport Minister Datuk Lee Kim Shin paid a visit to the new PPV on Thursday (June 24) after it was relocated from Miri Hospital. It would start with 1,000 doses of Sinovac vaccine per day.

Lee, who is also minister in charge of Miri Divisional Disaster Management Committee (DDMC), led a team there to observe the process and to identify problem areas.

“This is ensure smooth and efficient flow to achieve maximum capacity to speed up the vaccination programme in Miri,” a Miri DDMC statement said.

The team was generally satisfied with the systems introduced, except for some minor adjustments to be made to improve the work flow and crowd management.

“Today, there was no congestion or huge crowd at the PPV. More signages will be put up to guide the public.”

Meanwhile, Lee advised the public to continue to observe Covid-19 standard operating procedure guidelines set by the authorities – even though they have been vaccinated.

He also advised the public to strictly follow the appointment time given, and to arrive at the PPV 15 to 30 minutes before scheduled time.

Accompanying him were acting Miri Resident and Miri DDMC chairman Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusuf, Miri Division health officer Dr P Raviwharmman Packierisamy, Miri Hospital director Dr Jack Wong Siew Yu, acting Miri District officer Geraldine Janely Doris Peter Kulai and several officers from other agencies.
