Gleneagles KK and UMS to help speed up immunisation programmes.

KOTA KINABALU: Two institutions have been roped in giving vaccines to speed up the Covid-19 immunisation programme.

As of June 3, Sabah recorded the lowest vaccination rate which stood at 5.2 per cent as compared to other states in Malaysia.

Starting June 7, Gleneagles hospital Kota Kinabalu will be the first private hospital to
inoculate around 500 members of the local community in Sabah weekly.

Dr Tan Bee Hwai, Chief Executive Officer of Gleneagles Hospital Kota Kinabalu, said, “We are honoured to be supporting the Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 national vaccination programme.

“We are committed to deploy our resources to support the MoH with mass vaccinations and safeguard the health and safety of the local community. Let us protect ourselves and our loved ones by
getting vaccinated”.

The vaccination centre will operate Monday to Friday, from 9.00 am until 5.00 pm.

Appointments for the vaccination are set via the MySejahtera app. For more information, please contact us at 088-518888, 012-9239442 (WhatsApp only) during office hours
