Over 11,000 Sabah Police Personnel To Be Vaccinated Under Phase 2

KOTA KINABALU: Over 11,000 police personnel in Sabah are expected to receive the COVID-19 vaccine under the second phase starting this April, said State Police Commissioner Datuk Hazani Ghazali.

He said to date over 4,000 officers and staff in the state have been vaccinated since the National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme started on Feb 24.

“Under the first phase too, another 4,338 personnel would be getting their shots by this week. I hope that the Police Family Association (Perkep) will be also included because they help to look after the police community.”

He said this when met by reporters at Sekolah Kebangsaan Darau here, today, after making his rounds on the first day of school. Also present was Sabah State Education Department (JKNS) deputy director Abidin Marjan.

Hazani, who received the vaccine on March 4, also called on Sabahans to register for their COVID-19 vaccination.

Meanwhile Hazani said the police had been monitoring anti-vaccine activities, including on social media, but so far there had been no reports of anti-vaccine movement in Sabah.
