Vaccination centres (PPVs) are not meant to be dull and boring with zombie-like doctors and volunteers walking around to get people vaccinated. In fact, our local PPVs are actually quite cheerful and supportive where you can actually witness many random acts of kindness ranging from simple things as helping complete strangers taking photos at the photo booth to complex things such as guiding an old lady to the vaccination booth.
However, there’s bound to be some quirky incidents too and one of them is people wearing costumes of fictional characters such as Doraemon, Batman, Ultraman, Valak and a T-Rex just to get vaccinated! Here’s a quick compilation of fictional characters that have made their appearance at local PPVs.
The main antagonist of the critically-acclaimed “Conjuring 2” movie has made its appearance in one of the local PPVs. However, it seemed more friendly as opposed to the movie version of the character. Hopefully, no one freaked out over this costume!
Here’s another spooky costume that just screams Malaysia! In an attempt to mimic the real Chinese vampire, the wearer decided to jump all the way to the vaccination booth.
Now, this well-liked childhood character had definitely put a smile on the front liners’ face at PPV Kuala Nerus. The young woman wearing it had the intention to cheer up the front liners as well as the vaccine recipients at University Sultan Zainal Abidin. The process was albeit an easy one because the costume had a zipper on the sleeve.
The wearer of this costume, Kenny Sia was definitely at the centre of attention at PPV Kuching. His T-Rex costume was intended to bring cheer to the front liners and volunteers and the suit also served as additional personal protective equipment.
The superhero that only comes out at night, apparently, appeared during daytime at PPV Universiti Malaya, presumably for the Astrazeneca vaccine.
A Whole Assembly Of Superheroes
Nine superheroes appeared at the SPICE Arena in Georgetown — consisting of Black Panther, Hulk, Spiderman, Batman, Ultraseven and the Predator! This all-star group of superheroes had definitely brought happiness to the people getting vaccinated.
This cute duck costume made its appearance at PPV Bukit Jalil with many people getting vaccinated taking the opportunity to take photos with it.
These Patriotic Messengers
Shortly after Merdeka Day, these patriotic citizens showed up dressed in the national flag. This classy outfit had a Jalur Gemilang hat, shirt and even pants. Talk about creative! It’s not confirmed but a banner in the back suggests these patriotic guys visited the vaccination center in Sungai Bakap, Penang.
The “Money Heist” Crew
They may be from “Money Heist”, but they’re here to get the vaccine through legal means, just like everyone else. Even these scary looking guys know to follow the SOPs, with social distancing and patient waiting. Those on duty got a kick out of taking photos with these ‘hardened criminals’.
It’s quite obvious that many of these costume wearers have a good intention to cheer up the emotionally and mentally exhausted front liners and volunteers. It’s a good initiative and hopefully, the whole country could get vaccinated fast in order to go back to our normal lives.
