TELEKOM Malaysia Bhd (TM) has strengthened its support of the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme as its Multimedia University (MMU) Cyberjaya campus started operations as a mega vaccination centre (PPV) facility on July 15.
This further complements the operations of MMU Melaka campus as a PPV since mid-June.
The integrated mega PPV at MMU Cyberjaya campus is able to accommodate the administration of 3,000 vaccine doses per day.
Combined with the Melaka campus, both facilities have the capacity to cater for 3,600 vaccine doses daily.
In addition to these facilities, TM also deployed more than 30 TM Reaching Out Volunteers (Rovers) among its Warga TM to lend a helping hand at mega PPV Bukit Jalil.
This will be extended to more venues progressively.
Commenting on the support, TM group chief executive officer Imri Mokhtar said, “We believe our responsibility to help the nation curb the pandemic goes beyond our role as an essential service provider.
“We are very honoured that both our MMU campuses in Cyberjaya and Melaka have been selected to be PPV facilities.
“Together with the deployment of our TM Rovers volunteers, this is our undivided commitment to further accelerate the national immunisation programme so we can help achieve herd immunity for the nation faster.”
TM also runs its own internal drive to encourage its employees to register for vaccination and to date, more than 80% of Warga TM have registered for the national immunisation programme and 51% of them have been vaccinated or at least have an appointment set for their first dose.
“TM remains fully supportive of the government’s recovery plan.
“We continue to ensure Malaysians are connected in the safety of their homes and that all our customer support services are in operation throughout each phase of the recovery plan.
“As the enabler of Digital Malaysia, we will support all of our customer segments across homes, businesses, industry as well as the public sector with connectivity and digital infrastructure and solutions towards economic recovery.
“We join all Malaysians in prayer for our safety and health nationwide — please continue to stay safe and ensure that we get vaccinated — together may we return stronger,” he concluded.
