Chinese nationals get jabs


PETALING JAYA: A total of 500 Chinese nationals received their Covid-19 vaccinations at Palace of the Golden Horses, says Khairy Jamaluddin.

The National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (PICK) coordinating minister said Chinese nationals who were not among the 500 who received their vaccinations at the hotel yesterday would get theirs at vaccination centres throughout the country.

“They will be vaccinated hopefully by next week,” he told a press conference broadcast by Bernama TV yesterday.

Khairy was visiting the hotel in Serdang where the special vaccination programme for the Chinese nationals living in Malaysia was being held.

He noted that there were 26,000 to 30,000 Chinese nationals living in Malaysia.

Meanwhile, Chinese Ambassador to Malaysia Ouyang Yujing said that since the Covid-19 outbreak last year, both governments had been working together.

He thanked the Malaysian government for PICK, which he said had not only benefited Malaysians but foreigners including Chinese nationals.

“This reflects our solid friendship. As long as we work together, we can defeat the pandemic,” he said.
