A LONG queue was spotted outside the Bandar Baru Ayer Itam government clinic in Jalan Angsana, Penang, as the crowd, mostly foreigners, had gone there hoping to secure their Covid-19 vaccination slots for next week.
However, the crowd dispersed soon after they found out that the 90 slots had been taken up.
Photos of the long queue outside the clinic yesterday morning that surfaced on social media caused netizens to voice out fears of a new cluster in Penang.
George Town OCPD Asst Comm Soffian Santong who visited the scene to check the situation, said the crowd was there to register for vaccines that would be given out next week.
“They were mostly foreigners and a few locals.
“The group dispersed the moment they were informed that all the 90 slots had been taken up,” he said.
ACP Soffian said he went there to check the situation after receiving information about the long queue.
“They left as soon as they realised that all the appointments had been secured,” he said.
