PLUS Malaysia Bhd’s Persada PLUS has become Malaysia’s first highway headquarters to be made an integrated public vaccination centre (IPVC) that will inoculate up to 2,000 individuals per day.

This was made possible through its partnership with its medical advisory partner, Primer Cherang together with Protech Health, the implementer of private medical practitioner and healthcare non-governmental organisation participation in the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme.

In a statement, the highway concessionaire said the Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force selected Persada PLUS as one of 14 public immunisation venues to accelerate the dispensing of vaccines through Operation Surge Capacity to ensure that all adults would receive at least one dose of the vaccine by Aug 1 and help flatten the curve.

As of July 25, over 16 million doses, comprising first and second doses had been administered under the programme.

Of this number, 11.5 million of the population received their first dose and over 5.4 million were fully vaccinated with two doses.

“Based on the data, PLUS is proud to be able to play its part in helping the country ramp up its immunisation numbers,” said its managing director Datuk Azman Ismail.

“The sooner we are able to attain the target to allow us to enter phase four of the National Recovery Plan, the sooner the economy can improve and businesses can be revived.”

He urged those who had registered for vaccination to regularly check their MySejahtera updates and to continue adhering to the standard operating procedures, adding that it would be best to work from home until they were fully inoculated.

The statement added that PLUS’ role as a Rakan Negara (friend of the nation) is reflected in its capacity to provide a safe and comfortable highway network and to facilitate the transportation of essential goods as well as commercial produce crucial for the economy.

Therefore, its involvement in the immunisation programme ensured its sustainability as well as that of the country.

Its participation also provided the opportunity for PLUS employees to be part of something meaningful and historical.

PLUS said its employees would volunteer with personnel from Primer Cherang and Protect Health in an effort to help as many as possible in Malaysia to be vaccinated against the Covid-19 virus.
