Vaccines to arrive this week for Selvax programme

PETALING JAYA: The supply of 250,000 Covid-19 vaccine doses for the Selangor Vaccine (Selvax) Industry programme will arrive in the Klang Valley from Friday, says the state government.

“The supply of this vaccine stock is expected to arrive in stages from July 23 to 30,” said Selangor state executive councillor for trade and industry Datuk Teng Chang Khim and exco member for housing, urban well-being and entrepreneur development Rodziah Ismail in a recent joint statement recently.

They said the supply of the vaccine came under Operation Surge Capacity to help speed up the targeted vaccination of industries in the Greater Klang Valley.

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

Under Selvax Industry, companies and industries can register for vaccination if they bear the cost of vaccine set at RM350 per employee for both doses of the vaccine.

The programme administers the Sinovac vaccine.

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

Teng and Rodziah said that Selvax Industry was being implemented at five permanent vaccination centres (PPV) at suitable and convenient locations.

These are Tropicana Gardens Mall, Kota Damansara; Evo Mall, Bandar Baru Bangi; Hotel De Palma, Shah Alam; Aurora Place, Bukit Jalil; Kompleks Sukan PKNS, Kelana Jaya; and Selcare panel clinics.
