KUALA LUMPUR:”Just like an ant bite.”
That was the immediate response from Minister Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Sabah and Sarawak Affairs) Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili after receiving his dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, today.
Later, he chose placards bearing the words “Vaccinated” and “#LindungDiriLindungSemua” and posed with trained nurse and vaccinator, Wan Rosmaliza Wan Daud , who was tasked to carry out the dose.
They also raised their index and middle fingers pointed up in the V shape, symbolising “vaccine”.
When asked his condition after the half an hour observation, following the vaccination, Ongkili responded: “So far, so good”, and thanked the frontliners, for their services.
He received his dose at the Precinct 18 health clinic, which is part of the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme, after co-chairing the Socio-Economy Working Committee Meeting with Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Economy), Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed.
Ongkili also advised the public not to be worried or afraid of the vaccine, adding that it is vital to stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus, and the pandemic as a whole.
