Speed up jabs for seniors


THE country is now in the second phase of the vaccination programme involving senior citizens and other vulnerable groups. Based on media reports, those currently given priority for vaccinations are senior citizens in the 70-90 age bracket. This is in line with the objective of providing timely protection to the elderly.

However, many Malaysians have urged the authorities to accelerate the pace of immunisation so that more senior citizens, including those who are below 70, could be inoculated in the coming weeks, especially with increasing Covid-19 cases in recent days.

There are also observations from the public that vaccinations under the second phase are not conducted during weekends, owing to constraints relating to logistics and manpower.

Senior citizens and other high risk individuals who are waiting for their turn remain hopeful that the authorities will speed up the immunisation process in the coming weeks.
