Two integrated vaccination centres in KL to open on Saturday (Jan 15)


KUALA LUMPUR: Two integrated vaccination centres here, namely the World Trade Centre Kuala Lumpur (WTCKL) and Axiata Arena in Bukit Jalil, are ready to operate from Saturday (Jan 15).

Kuala Lumpur vaccination centre coordinator Dr Misliza Ahmad said the Health Ministry had made all preparations since Wednesday (Jan 12), including a dry run Friday (Jan 14), to enable both the centres providing the AstraZeneca booster jabs to operate smoothly from Saturday.

"Today, we carried out a dry run involving every counter, right from the registration counter to the last vaccination counter to ensure everything runs smoothly," she told Bernama.

At the same time, Dr Misliza said more than 300 staff and volunteers, including from the Malaysia Vaccine Support Volunteers (MyVac), police, Malaysian Civil Defence Force, Rand Malaysian Armed Forces would assist in the immunisation programme at the two centres.

She said the WTCKL centre could administer a total of 9,000 booster jabs daily while the Axiata Arena centre had a daily capacity of 8,000 doses, adding that it would take each individual about 30 minutes to complete the process of getting their booster shots. – Bernama
