The National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme in Sibu Division has completed its final phase.

The vaccination team of the Sibu Division Health Department used a bus to vaccinate the last group of people who had yet to get their jab.

The mobile vaccination started on July 29 and ended yesterday.

Bawang Assan SUPP chairman Senator Robert Lau Hui Yew said the mobile vaccination was open to anyone, without them having to make an appointment or register. Registration was done on the spot.

“Malaysians had to produce their MyKad, while foreign workers had to show their passport, even if their work permit or passport had expired,” he said.

As at July 20, Lau said those vaccinated with the first dose numbered 210,677 and those with two doses stood at 163,645.

“If we take the total number of people eligible for vaccination in Sibu Division to be 242,000 (those aged 18 and above and all outstation and foreign workers staying in Sibu Division), the percentage of those vaccinated is 87% (for first dose) and 68% (both doses).

“The percentage will drop to 81% and 63% respectively if the base (total number of people eligible for vaccination) increases to 260,000,” he said. — By ANDY CHUA
