If you have been scheduled to receive your 2nd dose this or even last week but did not manage to find time to come, you can also come tomorrow for the vaccination as per current WHO guidelines, all persons to receive their second dose can receive within 14 days following date of vaccination on your cards.
The Ministry of Health and Medical Service (MHMS) would like to thank each and every single individuals, leaders, elders, men and women who have come out this week to receive either their 1st Sinopharm dose or 2nd AstraZeneca dose.
Our data entry team are currently compiling data of vaccinated persons throughout the week and overall coverage of current vaccination roll which will be made available via the the Prime Minister’s National Address next week Monday.
COVID-19 vaccination remains the most cost effective and efficient means where we can protect ourselves and our country against COVID-19 pandemic.
There is overwhelming evidences around the world including the region that waiting for community transmission before scrambling to get vaccinated has proven to be futile as the vaccines need time to enable the development of soldiers in our bodies to fight against COVID-19 diseases.
Even if you think, you are fit and healthy, with COVID-19 we must think beyond ourselves. Think of the sick and elderlies including children in our homes. The more the number of people in a household gets vaccinated against COVID-19 the less likely COVID-19 in the event of a community transmission will reach people in that household and vice versa with households where none or only few eligible people gets the COVID-19 vaccination.
With this, see you all tomorrow.
From CFH vaccinators to the public; come tomorrow and we will be there to meet and greet you and administer your COVID-19 vaccine dose.
