PETALING JAYA: About 250,000 doses of Covid-19 vaccines will be delivered to the Klang Valley through the Selangor Vaccine (Selvax) Industry programme.

"The supply of vaccine stocks is expected to arrive in stages from July 23 to 30.

"Stocks for the first and second doses for the initial phase amount to approximately 40,000 doses," said a joint statement issued by Selangor exco for trade and industry Datuk Teng Chang Kim and exco for housing, urban well-being and entrepreneur development Rodziah Ismail on Monday night (July 19).

They said the supply comes under "Operation Surge Capacity" which aims to speed up vaccination of adults in the greater Klang Valley.

Selvax is divided into two categories, Community (free for targeted groups) and Industry.

Under Selvax Industry, companies and industries can register for vaccination but must bear the RM350 cost per employee for both doses.

Those under the programme will receive the Sinovac vaccine.

Some 2.9 million employees from 62,000 companies signed up for Selvax Industry when it opened for registration in mid-June.

Teng and Rodziah said the move to speed up vaccination in Selangor and the Klang Valley is in line with the decision taken by National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme coordinating minister Khairy Jamaluddin and Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari during a recent meeting.

The vaccines, Teng and Rodziah added, would be administered at five mega PPVs and health facilities set up for the purpose.

The PPVs are Tropicana Gardens Mall, Evo Mall in Kota Damansara, Hotel De Palma in Bandar Baru Bangi, Arora Place in Shah Alam, the PKNS Sports Complex in Bukit Jalil, as well as Selcare panel clinics.
