JKJAV: Jabs to roll into Kedah's Kuala Nerang from today (June 2)

PETALING JAYA: Covid-19 vaccine jabs will be literally rolling into Kuala Nerang in Kedah, as a mobile vaccination truck will be in the area to give jabs to residents.

The Special Committee on Covid-19 Vaccine Supply Access Guarantee (JKJAV) shared the good news on its Twitter on Tuesday (June 1) night, saying the mobile unit to administer the Covid-19 vaccine jabs has been launched in Kuala Nerang.

“The unit will make its rounds at old folks' care centres, huts and villages in the area beginning Wednesday (June 2), ” it said.

The mobile vaccination truck is part of the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (NIP).

On Monday (May 31), NIP coordinating minister Khairy Jamaluddin said such mobile vaccination trucks will also be used to vaccinate residents in certain areas of Kuala Lumpur.

He said the outreach programme for vaccination using mobile trucks will go to areas such as PPR housing areas and construction sites which are still operating during the total lockdown period.

Khairy also noted that around 400,000 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech and some 600,000 Sinovac vaccine doses will be arriving this week.
