KUCHING, Oct 30: The distribution of Covid-19 vaccination certificates will be done in stages to markets under Kuching South City Council’s (MBKS) jurisdiction.

According to MBKS mayor Dato Wee Hong Seng, these certificates are mainly for the stall operators and the assistants’ stall operators who have completed their vaccination schedule.

“Kenyalang Market is the second market in MBKS area to receive the certificate for having all their operators fully vaccinated,” he said in a statement today.


On Friday (Oct 29), Wee, together with Cr Goh Tze Hui, Cr Philip Liaw and Managing Director of Tay Motor Sdn Bhd Aaron Tay, went to Stutong Community Market and Kenyalang Market to distribute face masks and face shields to hawkers there.

While in Kenyalang Market, Wee took the opportunity to present the Covid-19 vaccination certificates to the Kenyalang Market Liaison Committee Leader.

Meanwhile, Wee pointed out that this is one of the continuous efforts taken by MBKS to create awareness on the importance of being fully vaccinated to encourage customers to visit stalls and eateries.

He said it is important for the Council to assure the customers that it is safe for them to enter the premises.

“Everyone’s cooperation on this matter is very much appreciated, and thank you for being a responsible citizen by showing support towards the government effort,” he added. — DayakDaily
