ALL parties must push harder to overcome the obstacles faced in the Covid-19 vaccination drive, especially in the rural areas of Sabah and Sarawak in order to achieve herd immunity against the pandemic as soon as possible, said Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Sabah and Sarawak) Dr Maximus Ongkili.

He said in Sabah and Sarawak, the real issue is registration as not many people have access to MySejahtera due to poor Internet connectivity, especially in the rural areas, thus more efforts are needed to drive the programme forward.
