SHAH ALAM: A 101-year-old grandmother looked happy when she was administered the second dose of Sinovac Covid-19 vaccine today at KPJ Klang Specialist Hospital, as she could not wait to go out for a walk like she used to prior to the pandemic.

Khoo Swee, who arrived at the hospital accompanied by her son, Lim Kim Hoon, 74, was greeted warmly by KPJ Klang staff and went through a smooth vaccination process that took about 30 minutes, including the time needed to monitor her after she received the jab.

“Very good… very good,” she told the media while showing the thumbs-up sign, when asked how she felt after being fully vaccinated.

Lim said that his mother may not have understood the need for the vaccine and the threat of the Covid-19 virus fully, but the elderly woman, who has heart problems, followed her children’s advice to be vaccinated for her own health and safety.

Meanwhile, KPJ Klang chief executive officer Nor Aidil Ikram Muhamad said that he was honoured that the hospital was selected to assist in the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme.
