Sarawak has given the green light for those who have yet to receive an appointment for vaccination to walk in at jab centres, in its latest push to boost the Covid-19 immunisation drive in the state.

“The Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force has given permission to all vaccination centres to carry out vaccination on a ‘walk-in’ basis,” the Sarawak disaster management committee said in a statement today.

It said those who have yet to receive an appointment should contact their divisional disaster management committee from July 23 to Aug 5 in order to make a walk-in appointment.

“Sarawak would like to emphasise the importance of completing the vaccination doses according to the type and time interval that has been set,” it added.

This follows the move to allow walk-in vaccinations for senior citizens in the Klang Valley as part of a pilot programme which Health Minister Dr Adham Baba said could be expanded to other states as well.
