Sibu, May 25: Stateless people who want to receive the Covid-19 vaccine are urged to get the assistance of Sarawak Dayak Iban Association (SADIA) Rajang Branch.

Branch chairman, Bill Jugah said today that as stateless people do not have MyKads, they could not meet the requirement as set in the MySejahtera app when registering for the vaccine.

“The government has done a good job in launching the vaccination programme against theCovid-19 pandemic. However it is not due to the fault of the government but a problem in bureaucracy. Other countries also have this problem. We feel that there is a need for us to tackle this bureaucracy issue,” he said.

He added that for those without personal documents such as identity cards and birth certificates, they could not register for the vaccine through MySejahtera.

“So if you could not register, how can you receive the vaccine?” he asked.

His branch, he added, is now helping stateless people to register for the vaccine.

Bill added that they can contact him at 016-8751119 as he will help to forward their application to the relevant authority.

Among the particulars needed include the applicant’s name, age, location and contact number.

“I will to forward the application to the relevant authority so that stateless people will not be left out of the vaccination programme,” he said. — DayakDaily
