KUCHING: All public vaccination centres (PPVs) in Sarawak will continue to accept walk-ins, said State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) advisor Datuk Seri Dr Sim Kui Hian.

He urged members of the public who have yet to receive their Covid-19 vaccine to go to the nearest public PPVs for the vaccination.

“In view of the new standard operating procedures where many of the activities require individuals to be vaccinated, we hope that the remaining five to ten percent of the unvaccinated eligible population can come forward for inoculation,” he said in a Facebook post on Saturday (Aug 14).

At the same time, Dr Sim, who is also Local Government and Housing Minister, said the Stadium Perpaduan PPV will be closed soon.

“Stadium PPV is in the process of winding down where it only serves second-dose recipients. It will be converted to a Covid-19 Quarantine and Low-Risk Treatment Centre.

“First-dose recipients in the area can walk in to Petra Jaya Health Clinic,” he said.

Last month, the state, in its initiative to expedite the inoculation process, has given the green light to those who have yet to receive their jabs to walk in to any public PPVs.

“The Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force has given permission to all PPVs to carry out vaccination on a walk-in basis,” SDMC said in a statement.
