KUALA LUMPUR, June 11 — The high number of vaccine doses administered daily is proof that the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme launched on Feb 24 is proceeding smoothly, said Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
“Alhamdulillah vaccination has picked up pace yesterday more than 156,000 people (received their jabs) and it will increase to between 200,000 and 250,000 in July and then hit 300,000 to 400,000 daily.
“This proves that the immunisation programme is going well and it is important for more people to register with MySejahtera (for vaccination). There is nothing to worry or fear because it is proven that with vaccine we will have protection against Covid-19 or antibodies to keep us safe,” he added.
Muhyiddin was speaking to reporters after visiting the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Specialist Children’s Hospital and inspecting the drive-through vaccination centre at Hospital Canselor Tuanku Muhriz here today.
Also present were Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba and Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Dr Noraini Ahmad. — Bernama
