PETALING JAYA: The National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme is going to the interior of Negri Sembilan with the state’s first mobile vaccination unit.

A 13-member Health Ministry team has reached Felda Kepis, Kuala Pilah, in a re-purposed mobile dentist unit to vaccinate Felda settlers.

“Apart from the medical team, local volunteers have also joined in to help ensure the vaccination process is conducted in a smooth, orderly and safe manner.

“Three medical officers and two dentists in the team have been tasked with administering the vaccine,” Kuala Pilah district medical officer Dr Noraliza Radzali said when contacted.

She said the goal of the exercise was to provide 1,000 doses of vaccine to the elderly and those with comorbidities.

“Those above 18 and eligible are also welcome for the vaccination,” she said.

Dr Noraliza also said they were targeting to vaccinate 250 settlers a day.

“The exercise will be conducted for five days,” she said, adding that settlers would be given the Sinovac vaccine.

The mobile unit will be stationed at Dewan Semai Budi Felda Kepis with the team commuting to the area daily.

“We will be going into the interior such as Padang Lebar and Seri Menanti also during this period,” said Dr Noraliza.

Felda Kepis was selected for the mobile vaccination exercise as it had recorded a high number of Covid-19 cases recently.
