MB: 71.2% of Selangor residents have received first vaccine dose

SHAH ALAM (Bernama): About 71.2% of Selangor’s population have received at least one dose of vaccine through the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (PICK) and Selangor vaccination initiative (Selvax).

Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari (pic) said the result of the efforts carried out could be seen by this September towards achieving herd immunity in the state.

"Although Selangor is facing the challenge of being the most populous state in the peninsula and recording the highest number of cases, it continues to drive vaccination efforts with 4.89 million doses of vaccine administered, while through Selvax, another 225,628 doses were given,” he said via his official Facebook page on Thursday (Aug 5).

Meanwhile, Amirudin said the Covid-19 pandemic had forced all levels of society in Selangor to change their way of thinking and working, besides pushing the state government to intensify efforts at increasing the state’s revenue.

He also said that the digitalisation agenda in Selangor needed to be boosted from time to time and the civil service digitalisation initiatives increased to make it easier for the public to deal with the authorities, especially during this pandemic and post-pandemic era. - Bernama
