PETALING JAYA: A total of 21,096 doses of vaccine have been administered at the Parit Raja vaccination centre (PPV) which has a capacity of 1,200 doses per day, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.
In a post on his Facebook page, Dr Wee said he visited the PPV with Parit Raja assemblyman Nor Rashidah Ramli on Sunday (July 11).
“From the feedback from the people who have received the vaccine, the process at the PPV went smoothly.
“Many are satisfied with the comfort at PPV Parit Raja which is located in the Dewan Orang Ramai Parit Raja,” added Dr Wee, who is also Ayer Hitam MP.
Parit Raja and Ayer Hitam are both in Johor's Batu Pahat district.
Dr Wee also thanked and congratulated the Parit Raja PPV team.
A total of 30,000 food packages have been distributed to people in the Ayer Hitam constituency since March last year with more than half that number sent out in the last three months, said Dr Wee.
In a Facebook post on Sunday (July 11), Dr Wee said the aid is aimed at easing the burden on the people in his constituency during difficult times.
“In the past three months, the Ayer Hitam community service centre has given out 15,535 food aid packages to the people,” he said.
He added that the packages are part of the RM300,000 allocation to all MPs, regardless of political alignment, announced by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin for them to provide help to the people in their constituencies.
“I fully understand the difficulties of the people during the implementation of movement control order (MCO) 3.0 to curb the spread of Covid-19.
“Many economic sectors are badly affected including the incomes of the B40 and M40 groups,” said Dr Wee, who is also MCA president and Transport Minister.
To make sure the people are not cut off from food supplies, Dr Wee said there are over 37 food banks available for the needy in the constituency.
“The team from Ayer Hitam MP service centre and I will ensure that every household is not cut off from receiving food supplies.
“May we all remain strong in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic,” he added.
