SCHOOLS in Penang have been urged to adhere strictly to standard operating procedures while the Covid-19 vaccination programme is going on.

Bayan Baru MP Sim Tze Tzin said that before mass vaccination could be carried out to ensure herd immunity, schools needed to be careful.

“I hope this can be completed within 18 months.

“Without hiccups, the programme may be completed within 12 months.

“Until then, schools bear a heavy responsibilities as thousands of pupils are now returning for physical classes.”

Sim was speaking during a fabric face mask handover at the Bayan Baru Market recently.

He presented 2,780 masks to representatives from 17 schools in the Bayan Baru constituency.

Sim said the face masks were meant for Year One pupils in each school.

“As they are the youngest, we want to protect them.”
