KUALA LUMPUR: About 1,000 residents of Kampung Muhibbah people’s housing project (PPR) here received the Covid-19 vaccine through the MYMedic@Wilayah Vaccine Mobile Truck pioneer project.
Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa said the programme was aimed at curbing the spread of the virus in densely populated areas.
“The programme gives priority to the elderly and persons with disabilities with the assistance of the residents’ committee and coordinated through the MySejahtera app.
“This is a proactive measure to boost the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme, hence enabling residents of the Federal Territories to receive the vaccine fast, ” he said after the implementation of the pioneer project yesterday.
Annuar said the introduction of this project was to gauge the capacity that could be achieved after this.
“After getting the approval, we expect the mobile operation from June 15 will involve 10 trucks and in July, 39 trucks.
“Because under this system, the capacity to help speed up the vaccinations is between 15,000 and 20,000 jabs per day in the Federal Territories, ” he said.
The MYMedic@Wilayah Vaccine Mobile Truck initiative is among four measures being implemented in the Federal Territories of Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Labuan to achieve herd immunity by September. — Bernama
