KUANTAN, May 30 — Not checking the MySejahtera application and being influenced by fake news related to the vaccine have been identified as among the reasons why 10,000 Pahang residents did not show up for their Covid-19 vaccination appointments.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail said this following a briefing from the relevant parties on the issue of no-shows at vaccination centres (PPVs) in the state.

He said the Raub district had the most number of absentees with 45 per cent, followed by Pekan (43 per cent), Maran (40 per cent), Bera (28 per cent) and Bentong and Jerantut each with 22 per cent.

“Apart from not being aware of the location, time and date of the vaccine appointment given by the MySejahtera app, some also gave the reason that they forgot about it.

“There are senior citizens who also changed their minds after being influenced by fake news about the vaccine spread by family members or friends or which had gone viral on social media,” he said in a statement posted on his official social media page today.

Wan Rosdy also hoped that the younger generation could help by checking the MySejahtera application and reminding their elders about the vaccination appointments. — Bernama

  1. You actually make it appear really easy together with your
    presentation but I in finding this topic to be actually one thing that I believe I’d
    by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex
    and extremely vast for me. I’m looking ahead on your
    next put up, I’ll try to get the dangle of it!

  2. I am curious to find out what blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m experiencing some small security issues with my latest site and I
    would like to find something more risk-free.
    Do you have any recommendations?

  3. I’ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours as of late, yet I by no means found any
    attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s lovely price sufficient for me.
    In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent
    content material as you did, the net can be a lot more useful than ever before.

  4. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into
    starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to
    get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers
