PERLIS Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Azlan Man is giving priority to frontline personnel and others to get their first vaccine shots under the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme.
Azlan said that as the number of vaccine doses was limited, he decided to give way to those who really need the vaccination.
“What is more important is the people’s welfare.
“If there is a balance, I hope I will get the vaccine later, ” he told reporters.
He was speaking at the launch of the state-level immunisation programme at Kampung Gial Health Clinic in Arau, Perlis, on Monday.
A total of 180 frontliners were inoculated at the health clinic, Beseri Health Clinic (108 people) and Felda Chuping Health Clinic (54 people).
Among them were health exco member Teh Chai Ann, state secretary Azman Mohd Yusof and Perlis police chief Datuk Surina Saad.
Speaking to reporters later, Teh urged all Perlis people to quickly register themselves for the vaccination via the MySejahtera application.
“I don’t feel any side effects and my family has also registered for the vaccination via the app, ” he said. -- Bernama
