Maya holds the placard that she has been vaccinated.
PENAMPANG: Sabah Borderless Kaamatan Unduk Ngadau 2021, Maya Hejnowska, urges Sabahans who have yet to register for the Covid-19 vaccine not to delay in doing so.
“It is very important that we do so as soon as possible as the vaccine is one of the means for us to safeguard ourselves and the people around us,” she said.
She added that getting vaccinated is also the responsibility of all Sabahans as citizens.
Maya, who received her first dose of the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine at the Kadazan Dusun Cultural Association (KDCA) hall here today, explained that it is also important that Sabah achieves herd immunity soon.
She also said that she understood that some people are scared of needles and being injected.
“That is also the case with me. But it isn’t really that frightening once you go through with it.
“It is true what some people say that the pain is merely like an ant-bite. For me, the process took a second and it was over and done with,” she said.
