KOTA KINABALU, SABAH – No adverse side effects are reported thus far from the 5158 Sabah police officers and personnel vaccinated with Pfizer-BioNTech.

Sabah deputy Police Commissioner Datuk Mazli Mazlan said the first phase of immunizations was a success yet about 5,000 others on the State force are still awaiting their jabs.

“We will leave it up to the Health Ministry allocation in the following phases of vaccinations,” he said when met at the Police Contingent here today.

Mazli had just officiated a donation ceremony comprising worship tools and cash for three people whose lives were negatively affected in Op Daulat (2013 Lahad Datu Standoff).

RM 43,860 from Tabung Amanah Perwira dan Pertahanan Negara (TAPPN) went to a VAt 69 Commando active in the standoff and to two widowers who lost their husbands in the bloody tragedy.

Meanwhile, the contingent received 655 copies of the Quran, 610 Surah Yassins, 310 prayer mats, 23 book stands, 60 Quranic Tafsirs, and 60 prayer veils all worth RM 68,520 from the Anugerah Kasih Malaysia Association presented by its chairman Ustaz Zawawi Zakaria.
