1,000 doses set aside for those in Selangor sports industry


Selangor has allocated 1,000 doses of Covid-19 vaccine in phase one of a programme for various groups involved in the state’s sports industry in an effort to eventually reopen the sports sector.

The first phase saw 500 doses administered to athletes and coaches under the Selangor State Sports Council and 500 doses to members of the sports industry under the Selangor Youth and Sports Department.

The recipients were vaccinated at Hotel De Palma in Shah Alam, one of the vaccination centres under the Selangor Vaccination Programme (Selvax).

“Selangor is the first state in Malaysia to allocate a specific amount of vaccines to those in the sports industry under the Selangkah platform,” said state human capital development, sports and youth generation development committee chairman Mohd Khairuddin Othman in a statement.

“The state government is aware that efforts such as this programme for the sports industry will go towards forming herd immunity and reopening the sports sector in Malaysia.

“Because of this, the state government is working hard towards ensuring all adults in Selangor are vaccinated.”

He added that there would be subsequent phases in other locations so that more people in the sports industry could be vaccinated.

Khairuddin also said that so far, some 3.55 million people in Selangor had received their first dose of Covid-19 vaccine.
