KUALA LUMPUR: The Bukit Jalil National Stadium vaccination centre (PPV) is expected to start operations from tomorrow with a capacity to administer up to 10,000 doses per day, says Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina Merican.

The Youth and Sports Minister said the large-scale PPV would enable more people, especially those in the Klang Valley, to get vaccinated, with a focus on people aged 40 and below.

“The entire stadium has been transformed into a vaccination centre in line with the National Recovery Plan announced by the Prime Minister.

“This is part of the ministry’s efforts to ensure the initiative, led by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation and the Ministry of Health, under the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme will be a success through the optimal use of all available facilities.

“Insya Allah, with this initiative, we will be able to increase the vaccination rate,” he said on his official Facebook account.

Reezal Merican said that at the initial stage, a total of 60 volunteers under his ministry would be assigned at the stadium.

He called on the public to quickly register and always check the status of their appointments on the MySejahtera app.

The Axiata Arena Bukit Jalil started operating as a PPV from June 7. — Bernama
