SOME 600 workers of Putrajaya Holdings Sdn Bhd (PjH) in the construction, plant and hospitality services received their first dose of Covid-19 vaccine under the Federal Territories (FT) Ministry programme on Monday.
It was made possible through the MYMedic@Wilayah Vaccine Mobile Truck initiative which was aimed at speeding up vaccination of workers involved in essential sectors and who are allowed to operate during the movement control order period.
“The group of high-risk individuals volunteered for the programme arranged by us in collaboration with the FT Ministry,” said PjH chief executive officer Datuk Hashimah Hashim.
She added that PjH encouraged its employees to register for the vaccination in support of the government’s effort to achieve herd immunity, and applauded the ministry for initiating the programme.
The MYMedic@Wilayah Vaccine Mobile Truck initiative is among four measures implemented in the federal territories of Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, and Labuan.
The full-day exercise which began at 9am proceeded smoothly and was conducted under strict compliance with the standard operating procedure.
Vaccine recipient Zainal Abidin Abdullah, 53, said he signed up as it was an opportunity he did not want to miss.
Wan Raihanatun Wan Mohd Halim, 44, who also received the jab, was thankful to PjH and FT Ministry for arranging the programme.
