I registered for vaccination on 02 April in my Sejahtera Apps. I received an approved notification at the end of May. My first dose would be given on 17 June at KLCC Convention Centre at 7.00pm.
My head was full of excitement and worries with tummy butterflies the day before. That's because I read too much nonsense in Facebook about painful needles and swelling arms & nausea for days. Do or die, I had to GO!!! So my wife dropped me off at KLCC at 6.20pm. I must say that it is the best venue in whole Klang Valley. Building is very high class, fully air cond and plenty of open air parking space. All for free.
There were so many frontliners and medical staff in attendance. They were so professional, efficient and very friendly to everyone. They ushered everyone in quickly from section to section. Super fast and no waiting at each section. I showed them my apps on the phone and was whisked inside to fill up 2 declaration forms that needed to be signed in front of the doctor later.
Each section, the wait was no more than 5 minutes. The medical officer promptly asked about my medical history and explained that after the vaccination jab, some people might experience various side effects.
He showed me this list and asked me to take a photo to keep for reference. I am sharing with the whole world instead.
Finally. this is the last section outside the many closed booths. Individual doctors with a nurse assistant are inside to administer the injection. My turn came in less than 2 minutes and my heart skipped. My body size is big but my heart was like a mouse! I saw in video that the needles were like 5 inches long like chopsticks. So takut lah and I prayed to my dead mother to come & watch me. Kekekekeke
Nurse called me! My face frozen like the Cheung Chau icy pineapple and went inside to see a female doctor. She was very warm and nice. Greeted me and invited me to sit down. She was giggling because I was the only man who ever showed up in sleeveless shirt. She asked this sleeveless young man his age and was shocked to hear my reply. She grabbed my paper to see my age and held my arms. She really said I really looked very young. Ahem! Suddenly she said "Okay la Habis!"
I looked at her in disbelief and didn't even realized she had poked the needle into my arms. It was so painless! I told you guys my skin is very thick and that's a bonus. I laughed and got up, thanking the doctor and nurse continuously for all their hard work to serve the nation. They thanked me for making the effort to stay safe and protect everyone else. Their kind words echoed and replayed in my head till bedtime. I felt so warm and touched by such caring people. They were on duty since morning until 9.00pm daily.
The final section was to relax and rest for 15 minutes. Just to make sure that TM did not pengsan or turn green into Incredible Hulk monster before being allowed to leave for home. I was finally given a discharge and the appointment for 2nd dose vaccination on 08 July at KLCC again.
Yay! I was done in less than 30 minutes. I screamed because I received the Sinovac and very happy oooooooo. I posted this one photo in my Facebook and received so many jabs from all the aunties here and there. My kiasu cousins in Singapore called me Aunty Killer for posing this shot. Ouch!
