The pictures of a man who turned up for his appointment at a vaccination center dressed up as a dinosaur, are going viral on the internet.


The man is seen dressed up  in a special T-Rex suit, queuing up for his turn at the centre in the Malaysian state of Sarawak.

The man, Kenny Sia shared the pictures on Instagram and captioned, “Got my first dose of Sinovac today.” The photos have now taken social media by storm.

Sia, who is the founder and director of Level Up Fitness said that he decided to wear the suit after he saw photos of a senior citizen in the country, wearing a plastic bag over his head while getting vaccinated, going viral.


Malay Mail quoted him saying, “I really wanted to bring cheer to the frontline workers and volunteers as they have so many people to administer the vaccines to on a daily basis.”

He added that when he went to Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK), the frontline workers and volunteers played along and acted as if he were an ordinary person.

“Rather than wearing only face masks or face shields, I decided to go the whole way. The whole suit is effectively a PPE (personal protective equipment) – it’s one of those overall suits,” he told Reuters.

The vaccination centre not only shared the images of the ‘dinosaur’ turning up to get a jab but also created a step-by-step guide to inform others about the inoculation procedure.
