Ong also said that visitors who wish to know how they can qualify for the vaccination programme should approach the staff from the National Population and Family Development Board (LPPKN) for more information on that day.

“Through this carnival, we hope to raise the awareness on the importance of a healthy lifestyle and that personal wellness is not too difficult to achieve,” she said adding that early birds can expect to bring home a bag full of goodies.
