105,000 retail workers to be jabbed before Aug 31

PUTRAJAYA: A total of 105,000 workers in the retail sector are expected to be vaccinated under the retail industry vaccination programme (RiVAC) before Aug 31 with the opening of four more industrial vaccination centres (PPVIN).

The Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry in a statement said the four additional centres are at IOI City Tower, Putrajaya, which will operate from July 26 to Sept 13; Petaling Jaya Performing Arts Centre, Bandar Utama, Selangor (July 27 to Sept 20); Centro Mall, Klang (July 26 to Sept 16); and AEON Mall, Nilai, Negri Sembilan, at a date to be announced later.

“The first RiVAC PPVIN at Mid Valley Exhibition Centre Kuala Lumpur will be able to accommodate 31,500 vaccine recipients during its operations from July 26 until Sept 6.

“The four additional PPVIN will each accommodate a maximum capacity of 21,000 throughout the vaccination period.

“The ministry is considering making company-wide vaccination as one of the requirements for approval to operate under the National Recovery Plan, especially for economic activities that involve face-to-face interaction and close contact,” the statement added.
