Kelantan administers booster jabs

KOTA BARU: Kelantan has started administering the Covid-19 Pfizer vaccine booster dose, with 200,000 individuals targeted to receive the jabs in stages.

State Health Department director Datuk Dr Zaini Hussin said during the initial stage, the jabs would be given to frontliners, with an estimated 20,000 doses for health workers.

“The vaccine dose will also be given to those with comorbidities as well as individuals who may be travelling overseas.

“Maybe certain nations have this requirement, so we will administer the jabs to these individuals.

“In fact, those who feel that they are in the categories stated can come to hospitals,” he said after receiving a contribution of personal protective equipment from Yayasan Ikhlas here yesterday.

He also said the booster dose in the state would be administered at hospitals, health clinics and private clinics according to guidelines issued by the Health Ministry. — Bernama
