PETALING JAYA: More vaccine dispensing centres (PPVs) will be made available in Kuala Lumpur as 360 private clinics have been registered for such purposes, says Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa.

He said the Federal Territories was going "all out" to speed up the vaccination process for the public.

“A total of 360 private clinics in the federal territories have registered to be PPVs and 273 of them have received their letters of award (LOA).

“The target is to triple the rate now. May God make it easier,” he tweeted Saturday (May 29) evening.

Annuar, who is also the Ketereh MP, said on top of that, a total of 40 mobile trucks are being prepared for similar purposes.

On April 12, the government agreed to allow private hospitals to be vaccination centres in phases two and three of the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme, said Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba.

The Health Minister said the government will provide the vaccines for free to the private hospitals to widen access for the public.
