According to an update from the Special Committee On COVID-19 Vaccine Supply (JKJAV), 81.5% of the adult population in the state has completed their vaccination, thus increasing the total population vaccination to 59.1%!

Sarawak, along with two other Federal Territories namely Labuan and Kuala Lumpur, have successfully vaccinated more than 80% of its adult population.

This puts Sarawak on the right track in its efforts to achieve herd immunity this month.

Meanwhile, Labuan has vaccinated 89.3% of its adult population at the time of writing, which is equivalent to 61.4% of its total population.

Wahh, good job, Sarawak! We wonder which state will follow suit? Would it be Selangor, Johor or Putrajaya?

Guys, please remember to register for the vaccine as soon as possible!
