Single-dose CanSino a pragmatic approach in vaccination for remote areas


With the first batch of the CanSino Covid-19 vaccine expected to arrive next month whereby half of the supply will be sent to Kelantan and to Orang Asli settlements in its rural areas, Sabah Wanita MCA is heartened that CanSino will also be despatched to Sabah and Sarawak.

Bringing this single-dose vaccine to the outskirts is pragmatic as they will address the immunisation needs of Borneo interiors as well as the water villages off Sabah mainland and will ensure no one is left behind from the government’s National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme.
