PETALING JAYA: Over 150, 000 Covid-19 vaccine doses were administered on Tuesday (June 8), the highest daily vaccination rate for Malaysia since the national immunisation programme started in February, says Khairy Jamaluddin.

The National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme coordinating minister said that the continuous ramping up of capacity in the Klang Valley will drive up daily numbers.

According to data from the JKJAV, Malaysia dispensed a total of 151,309 doses on Tuesday (June 8), with 105, 722 people receiving first doses and the remaining 45,587 people receiving their second dose.
