"The first dose would be administered from March 1 till March 8 while the second dose would be done from March 22 till April 4.
"The target is to get 242 personnel and officers vaccinated per day," he told a press conference after attending the vaccination drive involving KL police personnel and officers at Jinjang Health Clinic on Monday (March 1).
The vaccines are stored at Hospital Kuala Lumpur, Hospital Angkatan Tentera Tuanku Mizan, Titiwangsa Health Clinic and the National Cancer Institute, he added.
