Hajiji: Immunisation drive in Sabah going smoothly with 88% of vaccine received used up

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah has received a total of 628,390 doses of Pfizer, Sinovac and AstraZeneca vaccines with 88% utilised to date, says Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor.

This means that 555,761 doses have been administered as of Wednesday (June 30), he said after a briefing on the vaccination programme by state Health director Datuk Dr Christina Rundi.

The briefing also coincided with the presentation of Sabah Prihatin 3.0 aid at the Manggatal community hall here.

Hajiji said the state has 152 vaccination centres (PPV) of all types, including health facilities, private hospitals and clinics as well as private halls converted under corporate social responsibility projects.

As for the mobile vaccination outreach programme, Hajiji said as many as 195 localities in 16 districts were covered by 20 mobile clinic teams.

"A total of 19,310 doses of vaccine have been administered (under the outreach programme)," he said.

“Based on a briefing by Dr Rundi, the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme in Sabah is running smoothly.

“I hope to see the process run more smoothly in rural areas as well," he said at the event, where he also flagged off vehicles leaving for vaccination outreach in Nabawan in the interior.

The Chief Minister also presented one-off cash assistance of RM300 to hawkers, among others in need.
