Up to 35pct of recipients no-show at Sabah university vaccination centre


Every day, 20 to 35 percent of vaccine recipients do not turn up for their appointments at the vaccination centre in Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS).

UMS hospital director Prof Dr Helen Benedict Lasimbang said the situation creates difficulties for the UMS vaccination centre to meet the target of 3,000 jabs daily.

“We also find it very difficult to find replacements. Our target is 3,000 doses a day and we are giving appointments for up to 4,000 doses. However, we still cannot meet the target because of absentees.

“I hope all residents in Sabah will check their MySejahtera every day.

“All residents should come according to the appointments given by MySejahtera, apart from updating the application frequently.

“We are very serious about providing protection against Covid-19,” she told reporters in Kota Kinabalu today.

Helen said the UMS vaccination centre, which opened on June 14, could only administer 1,000 vaccine doses a day before it was upgraded to 1,500 last week and to 3,000 this week.

Earlier, Helen, together with the media, inspected the traffic flow at UMS which was now no longer congested after improvements were made.

Among the improvements was changing the location of the MySejahtera application scanner from the main gate to the inside of the vaccination centre.
