PETALING JAYA: In an effort to boost Covid-19 vaccination capacity, the Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) will be opening more mega vaccination centres in the Klang Valley, says Khairy Jamaluddin.
The coordinating minister for the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme said that from June 7, several new mega vaccination centres would be set up.
“Three will be set up in Selangor and two in Kuala Lumpur,” he said on Sunday (May 30) during a visit to the country’s first mega vaccination centre at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (Mitec).
Khairy said the centres in Selangor would at The Mines Convention Centre, UITM Puncak Alam and Setia City Convention Centre while the two in Kuala Lumpur would be at KLCC Convention Centre and outside the Bukit Jalil Stadium.
Khairy added he would be going to Penang and Johor next week to discuss the opening of more mega PPVs.
He said the Mitec mega PPV, which opened on Monday (May 30), would be able to vaccinate 2,000 people per day.
He added that the aim was for Mitec to vaccinate more than 6,000 people per day if more halls are used.
“We started with 2,000 first because we are still in phase two vaccinations for the elderly.
“We do not want overcrowding to happen. In a week’s time, when the situation stabilises, we will look at increasing the capacity in Mitec,” he said.
Separately, he said there would be a new helpdesk feature on the MySejahtera app that would allow people to cancel or change their vaccination dates.
He added that there would also be a feature released soon for pregnant women and nursing mothers.
