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