PETALING JAYA: A mosque in Terengganu has set up a special vaccination centre (PPV) to boost Covid-19 inoculations under a pilot programme by the state, says Khairy Jamaluddin.
"Some 120 residents near the Masjid Taqwa in Terengganu have been vaccinated today (Sunday, June 20).
"This is Terengganu’s pilot vaccination programme at a mosque PPV," the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme coordinating minister said on Twitter.
Malaysia, which is currently ramping up its vaccination efforts to flatten the Covid-19 infection curve, has added more PPVs of all types, including mega centres, micro centres, mobile units, mosques as well as other places of worship, Khairy had said earlier.
A total of 5,815,575 doses of the Covid-19 vaccine have been administered in the country as of Sunday (June 20).
Other states such as Kelantan have taken similar initiatives to open up temporary vaccination centres at mosques and surau, among others, to make it easier for people to get their vaccination shots.
