PUTRAJAYA (March 1): The government has established ‘Guidelines to Determine List of Frontliners’ to avoid queue jumping under the Covid-19 vaccination programme, said Coordinating Minister for National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme Khairy Jamaluddin.
Khairy, who is also Science, Technology and Innovation Minister, said the decision was made at the Covid-19 Vaccine Supply Access Guarantee Special Committee (JKJAV) meeting in which the guidelines would provide details on frontliners.
The guidelines have been signed by him and Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba and had been uploaded at https://www.vaksincovid.gov.my/, found on the websites of both ministries, he added.
“So the question of cutting queue will not arise as personnel of vaccination dispensing centres (PPV) have been told to follow the guidelines. The guidelines will clearly state who is eligible and who is not yet eligible for the vaccination under phase one,” he was speaking at a joint media conference with Dr Adham after attending the JKJAV meeting here today.
Khairy said the government is also considering issuing compound on those found cutting queue to obtain Covid-19 vaccine jab.
