Sarawak: Vaccine First, Register Later Approach For Rural Area, Abg Jo

For those living in the rural area, the Sarawak government will allow the Covid-19 vaccination first, then register them, said Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg, Chief Minister of Sarawak to Borneo Post today. 

This 'hybrid' approach ensures those in the rural areas will not be left out in getting their Covid-19 vaccinations. 

"Besides registering through the MySejahtera application, Sarawak will use this 'hybrid' method that involves manual registration after the vaccine, especially those from rural communities," said Abang Jo.

"Even if their name is not in the registration, but they have come for vaccination, they can be vaccinated."

Sarawak wants to make it easier for those who come from far away so that they will not have to go back and forth to receive their Covid-19 vaccination, explained Abang Jo.

Abang Jo urged all elected representative in Sarawak to do their part in accelerating the vaccination registration and vaccination to hit the state's target of getting 70 per cent of the population vaccinated by the end of August.

More than 469,000 Sinovac and Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccines are scheduled to arrive in Sarawak soon. 380,000 doses will arrive in 2-days' time, according to Khairy Jamaluddin, the coordinating Minister of the National Covid-19 Immunisation Program.
