Drive-thru vaccination centre for persons with disabilities to be ready next week, says Rina Harun


KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): A drive-through vaccination centre (PPV) for persons with disabilities (PwDs) will be set up to speed up the immunisation exercise involving the group, said Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Rina Mohd Harun (pic).

She said that the drive-through PPV is expected to operate next week at a location in the Klang Valley, in collaboration with the private sector, via Senator Datuk Ras Adiba Radzi.

“This (drive-through) is an alternative to facilitate and expedite the vaccination exercise of the disabled community,” she told reporters after reviewing the implementation of the PwD vaccination programme at the Malaysian Association for the Blind (MAB) Complex here.

Rina said based on data from the Social Welfare Department (JKM), about 577,000 PWDs registered under JKM and thus far, a total of 195,395 PWDs had registered in the MySejahtera application for vaccination. - Bernama
