Rural Vaccination

Healthcare workers prepare to administer a CanSino vaccination during a COVID-19 vaccination outreach program on September 08, 2021, in Kampung Lok Urai, a remote village at Gaya Island outskirt of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia. Malaysia's vaccination efforts have started to reach the country's remote islands such as Gaya Island, off the coast of eastern Sabah state, which is located in Borneo. Better known for their white sand beaches and pristine waters, which were major attractions for divers and tourists before the COVID-19 pandemic struck, the vaccination of populations in remote locations in Eastern Malaysia has been gathering pace as officials reach far-flung islands not often visited by teams of health workers.
