Media practitioners to start getting Covid-19 shots from Wednesday (June 9), says Khairy

KUALA LUMPUR: Media practitioners will start receiving their Covid-19 vaccinations on Wednesday (June 9), says Khairy Jamaluddin (pic).

"Some have received their appointments on Monday (June 7) and will be getting their vaccines this Wednesday (June 9)," he told reporters after visiting the vaccination centre at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre which began operations on Monday.

Khairy, who is coordinating minister for the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme, said he is trying to increase the number of media practitioners who will be vaccinated.

"We are still finalising the number and steadily pushing it up," he said.

It was reported that a total of 5,687 media practitioners from 114 registered media agencies will receive Covid-19 vaccination jabs.

The decision by the Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) was in line with the government’s decision to give priority to frontliners including the media and teachers.
