JELEBU (Sept 6): The vaccination outreach programme will be implemented again for residents who have been left behind in getting their Covid-19 vaccine in Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya, said Deputy Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Jalaluddin Alias.
He said the focus will be on areas with over 500 positive cases in the past two weeks, especially in People's Housing Project (PPR) and Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) housing areas.
"Should cases hit 500 in the area, we will send a vaccination mobile unit there. So, city dwellers aged 18 and above who have not received their vaccine can immediately go to the outreach location later.
"Initially, the programme was stopped, but I had discussions with Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim to reinstate the programme to curb the spread of Covid-19.”
Jalaluddin, who is the Jelebu MP, said this to reporters after a meeting with Jelebu Undang Luak Datuk Maarof Mat Rashad in Kuala Klawang here today.
Jalaluddin said although vaccination among the people in Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya had exceeded 170% of the data obtained by the ministry, more detailed information is needed to facilitate the National Recovery Plan (PPN) transition phase.
He said the matter was discussed in the recent Covid-19 Coordination and Management Committee meeting to bring the two regions to move to PPN Phase 2 soon.
