Covid-19: First mobile vaccination unit starts operation in KL

PETALING JAYA: Mobile vaccination units will be inoculating more than 1,000 residents on Monday (June 7) at the PPR Kampung Muhibbah near Jinjang, says National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme coordinating minister Khairy Jamaluddin.

In a tweet, the Science, Technology and Innovation Minister said he was at the scene monitoring the vaccination process at the low-cost homes, to ensure that the immunisation programme was going as planned.

"Looking at the operation of the first mobile vaccination programme at PPR Muhibbah which involves 1,000 residents," said Khairy in his tweet.

He shared photographs showing him speaking to the residents, as well as residents waiting for their turn to be vaccinated.

Mobile vaccination units are being used by the government to reach densely populated areas where residents may have difficulty getting to vaccination centres.
