IMMUNISATION at two mega vaccination centres (PPVs) — Setia Spice Arena (SSA) in Bayan Baru, Penang and Setia City Convention Centre (SCCC) in Setia Alam, Shah Alam — have been smooth-sailing following the first day of operations on June 7.
SP Setia Bhd senior executive vice-president Datuk Koe Peng Kang said, “We wasted no time in offering our venues and infrastructure on a rent-free basis to expedite the logistics and venue preparation.”
Approximately 1,000 to 3,000 doses will be administered at SSA daily, while SCCC is expected to dispense an estimated 3,000 doses in the first four weeks, followed by 8,000 doses in the next four weeks.
To facilitate proceedings at both vaccination centres, 800 public servants, volunteers and medical personnel have been deployed.
SP Setia staff are also on hand to assist with crowd control and navigation.
The centres have released short videos on their social media channels to guide vaccine recipients on the process and the routes to the sites.
Senior citizens and persons with special needs will be escorted by volunteers from the designated drop-off area.
Parking fees are also waived for all volunteers and vaccine recipients at both venues.
SP Setia Foundation has sponsored the use of 150 laptops for the entire period of the PPVs’ operation, with technical support from SP Setia’s group ICT personnel to ensure seamless connectivity for the operating system.
The company is also grateful that its business associates are sponsoring breakfast for the frontliners in the first month of operations.
SCCC has 2,000 carpark bays. It is accessible from the New Klang Valley Expressway via the Setia Alam interchange, which provides direct access to Setia City.
