KUALA LUMPUR – Senior citizens above 60 years of age would be given the facility to get their Covid-19 vaccine via walk-in.
Minister of Health Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba said, the measure would begin in the Klang Valley and extended to the whole country.
“For Selangor and Kuala Lumpur, those aged 60 years and above who have yet to get their vaccine may walk-in for their vaccination.
“It would be extended to the other states. We are running a trial in Selangor,” he said during a virtual news conference today.
Adham said, the measure is taken after seeing the data that some senior citizens have yet to get their vaccine shot.
Meanwhile, Adham said that the industry vaccination centres (PPV) in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Seremban may carry out 24 hours vaccination and an initiative to speed up the vaccination process in those states.
At the same time, virtual Covid-19 Assessment Centre (CAC) will be developed soon for light Covid-19 symptoms and asymptomatic patients.
The Joint Director of the Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) Project Management Team, Datuk Dr Chong Chee Keong said, with the virtual CAC, people no longer need to be physically present at the CAC for assessment.
“The case will be monitored virtually without having the need to be physically present at the CAC,” he said. –MalaysiaGazette
