KUALA LUMPUR: A total of 4,625 Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) personnel will be receiving Covid-19 vaccinations at Wisma Pertahanan.
Malaysian Armed Forces Health Services Division Inspector-General Brig Jen Datuk Dr Rosman Ab Rahman said they would receive their vaccines together with 160 personnel from 19 agencies under the National Task Force from Tuesday (March 9) to Sunday (March 14).
"The programme is being conducted by the Joint Health Team from the Tuanku Mizan MAF Hospital Health Services Division and the MAF Klinik Kesihatan Ibu dan Anak at Desa Tun Hussein Onn.
"We have already vaccinated 6,091 personnel involving healthcare workers and members of our strategic group," he told reporters at Wisma Pertahanan here on Tuesday.
He said none of the 6,091 personnel who have received the vaccine showed any adverse side-effects.
"We have come across several personnel who complained about itchiness and mild rashes, but these symptoms subsided.
"So far none of our personnel has declined to receive the vaccine, but should we come across anyone who does, we have our team on hand to provide counselling and raise awareness on the importance of receiving the vaccine," he said.
