KUCHING, July 23: The 10th Mile Medical Clinic, which is one of four Covid-19 vaccination centres (PPV) in Mambong constituency, has administered 629 vaccination doses to date.

Mambong assemblyman Datuk Dr Jerip Susil said the recipients included those from outside the constituency.

“For this PPV, since we started operating on July 5, we have administered 629 doses to those who are eligible.

“For the distribution of the second dose, we will start from July 26,” Dr Jerip told a press conference today at the clinic.

He had earlier handed over face shields, hand sanitiser, rubber gloves, face masks and aprons, among others, to Drug Addiction Rehabilitation Centre (Puspen) and Padawan sub-district office.

The items to Padawan sub-district office are to be distributed to the other three centres.

The items were donated by a Bidayuh businessman Wilson Mapus, worth about RM15,000.

The three other PPVs in the area are the Health clinics at Bunuk, Br’ang Bayur and Padawan, which have started administering the second vaccination doses.

Dr Jerip, who is also Assistant Minister of Transport, said the vaccination was carried out by himself and his son, adding that initially the clinic was given 30 doses per day, but it had been increased to 48 doses.

He stressed that the clinic carried out a daily post-mortem after the vaccination exercise to address any shortcomings, if any.

He thanked the state government and Health Ministry for allowing the clinic as one of such centres for the Outreach Programme to be carried out smoothly. — DayakDaily
