Cops urge employers not to send workers too early for jabs

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have urged employers not to send their staff too early to the vaccination centres in order to avoid overcrowding.

This comes after images and videos went viral on social media and WhatsApp of long queues and large crowds outside a vaccination centre here.

Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Zainal Abdullah said employers were advised to only send their employees for vaccination according to their appointments.

"We urge them not to send their workers too early as it would lead to crowds.

"Many foreign workers from Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Negri Sembilan were sent to the KLCC vaccination centre which led to the situation which went viral," he said when contacted.

A 26-second video shows a large crowd gathered outside of KLCC.

Many Facebook users questioned why these individuals had come early even though Walk-ins would only be entertained from Aug 1.
