UPDATES (July 21 at 22:58)
Received this just now;
#Vaccines Update (21/7): There have been good improvement in the delivery of vaccines from KL (MOSTI) to Sabah. As of today the total number of vaccines delivered for the month of July are 747,980 doses, the latest delivery being 152,100 doses received just this afternoon. The second bulk delivery of 308,880 doses is scheduled to arrive on 28/7, & a smaller amount of 30,000 doses this Friday (23/7). The overall total for July would be 1,086,760 doses.
I don't know whether KJ got any hand in this but thank you all the same to those responsible for this quick action which restores my confidence in our vaccination programme. Hopefully the rate of vaccination in Sabah will catch up with those of the other states as soon as possible.
I have been cheering in support of the country's vaccination programme as I see it as the main weapon for Malaysia to win the Covid war.
So, it caused me great discomfort when a friend from Sabah forwarded to me this article,
It basically says that Sabah is being neglected as it received less vaccine supplies than even states, with lower infection rates.
It also accuses those working to vaccinate the population in interior Sabah of not doing a proper job.
The article is actually quite convincing.
My friend also told me that the allegations were all true and that he knew of cases where people in the interior of the state spending hours to get to vaccination centres only to be told to go back home because there was not enough vaccine supplies.
I can't check on the allegations myself though because I'm not in Sabah.
Therefore, I hope KJ could do it and if the allegations were really true, he should immediately do something about it.
We simply can't leave anyone behind in the vaccination process.
I really felt that KJ and his team have been doing a good job until I read that article.
Nonetheless, I still want to believe that they are doing their very best to get all Malaysians vaccinated as soon as possible and that's why I want them not to miss acting on the alleged problems faced by Sabah.
I don't want the allegations of the state being neglected being a blemish in the vaccination team's record.
So KJ, please quickly check on this yourself and if the problem is real, correct it immediately.
Don't let me and other Malaysians down, okay.
