TAWAU: Tawau MP Datuk Christina Liew has acknowledged that 10,000 doses of the CanSino Covid vaccine supply to Sabah have just been deployed to the district.

She urged residents who are fence-sitters and have yet to be vaccinated to do so without further delay.

“As responsible citizens, go get your vaccination as soon as possible. Do consider it as your national duty to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. We are already facing a serious problem now. Do not further aggravate the situation,” she told the people during a drive-through food aid distribution exercise at Jalan Kuhara, here, on Thursday, where 500 food packs (rice and groceries) were given out to motorists, taxi-drivers and motor-cyclists.

Liew, who is also Api Api Assemblywoman, hoped the State Health Department will ensure a regular supply of vaccines to Tawau until 80pc of the adult population here are fully vaccinated.

Sabah Covid-19 Immunisation Task force (CITF) Project Management Director, Datuk Masnah Matsalleh had said the state will receive another 86,000 doses of the same vaccine today (Friday).
