SARAWAK Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) chairman Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas was not vaccinated for Covid-19 yesterday due to health reasons.
State Health director Dr Chin Zin Hing said Uggah who is also Deputy Chief Minister had been advised to get vaccinated at a later date.
“Most likely, he will receive his vaccination next week in a hospital,” Dr Chin said in an Astro Awani report.
Uggah was present when Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Openg became the first person in Sarawak to receive the Pfizer BioNtech Covid-19 vaccine at the Petra Jaya Health clinic yesterday.
Others who were vaccinated were Deputy CM Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan, Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Seri Dr Sim Kui Hian and Dr Chin himself.
