I feel bad for the frontliners that’re working hard at other places. By volunteering, it is the least thing I can do to help the country during the pandemic. I do expect this kind of situation will occur one day and it is my responsibility as a Health Science student to be involved.

Prior to volunteering at the Vaccination Centre, I only had vaccinating and communication skills.
Overall it was great even though it was tiring. However, seeing the clients getting their vaccine and helping them satisfies me. There are ups and downs during volunteering but of course, we learn from our own mistakes and we learn from each other. In addition, I was actually doing my Discovery Year (DY) Internship at SMARTER while volunteering at UBD VC. Hence I took this chance to invite the autistic adults to get their vaccine at UBD VC. I collaborated with SMARTER and made a social story video called “Getting Vaccination” for them. It was a new experience for me to take care of the autistic clients.
I learned various things that include communication skills to local and foreigner patients while enhancing my vaccination skills. I learned new skills such as recording medications and patient records in Bru-HIMS. I also learned skills to take care of the autistic and special needs clients at UBD VC.
