Sarawak recorded the highest percentage of children vaccinations with almost 70% of those aged five to 11 years having completed the first dose through the National Children's Covid-19 Immunization Program (PICKids) so far.

Deputy Health Minister Datuk Dr Noor Azmi Ghazali said this in response to an additional question from Igan MP Ahmad Johnie Zawawi, that the achievement was the result of the state government's efforts to visit schools and vaccination centers (PPVs) to give Covid-19 vaccine injections to children who did not register in the MySejahtera application.
