PUTRAJAYA: Residents of enhanced movement control order (EMCO) areas will be allowed to travel to get vaccinated, says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Senior Minister (Security) also said travel to hometowns to take family members for vaccination appointments would be allowed.

"All they need to do is to show the appointment stated on MySejahtera and obtain police permission.

"For the purpose of travelling to get inoculated, a maximum of three people, including the driver, are allowed in the vehicle," he said on Monday (July 5).

On July 3, Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Azmi Abu Kassim said that police were waiting for the green light from the Health Ministry to allow residents from EMCO areas in the city to travel to Covid-19 vaccination centres.

Ismail Sabri also said convenience stores, supermarkets and mini-markets, would be allowed to sell all goods available during the National Recovery Plan period.

He said that eateries under Phases One and Two can operate from 6am and 10pm but operations at outlets in EMCO areas in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur can only operate from 8am to 8pm.
