KUCHING: The Kuching South City Council has lodged a police report over a Google form bearing its name and logo that has been used to register individuals for Covid-19 vaccination.

The council made the report at the Sekama police station here on Friday (June 18) after a link to the Google form began circulating on social media.

The form carries the council's logo and requests personal details of individuals interested to receive the vaccination at Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK).

"Please be informed that the council has never provided any form or link regarding this issue.

"We would like to remind the public not to click on the link and not to fill in any personal particulars to avoid misuse of information," the council said in a statement.

It also urged the public to check the validity of any links before providing personal data.

The BCCK vaccination centre administers the AstraZeneca vaccine to individuals with appointments made through MySejahtera.

Last week, the centre's commandant-in-chief Dr Cheong Yaw Liang advised the public to ignore any WhatsApp messages asking for their personal details for vaccination purposes.

"The vaccination centre does not use this platform to communicate with the public," he said.
