KUALA LUMPUR, March 23 — Pantai Hospital Klang (PHK) has administered Covid-19 vaccines to more than 200 private health care workers and frontliners in Klang, Selangor.
The private hospital is the second hospital in IHH Healthcare Malaysia’s network of 16 hospitals, after Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur, to set up a Covid-19 vaccination centre within its premises, in support of the national Covid-19 vaccination programme.
“So far, our two Pantai Hospitals have vaccinated close to 2,000 frontliners in the Klang Valley. Our Gleneagles Hospitals, Pantai Hospitals and Prince Court Medical Centre are committed to deploy resources to assist the Ministry of Health (MOH) with mass vaccinations, a service we have extended since Phase One,” IHH CEO Jean-François Naa said in a statement.
“We have come to an important phase in the fight against Covid-19, and I urge everyone to protect themselves and their loved ones by getting vaccinated,” he added,
“We are grateful for the assistance from the MOH and would also like to thank Pejabat Kesihatan Daerah Klang and Klinik Kesihatan Bukit Naga for collaborating with us to make this programme a success,” PHK CEO Shaharul Nizam Sahrudin said. “PHK has vaccinated frontliners from Sentosa Specialist Hospital Klang, Hospital Bersalin Razif, JMC Medical Centre and general practitioners from clinics in Klang. We are ready to support the Klang community on this vaccination project.”
“Our hospital staff have put in many hours to transform our facility into a fully compliant vaccination centre. I am proud of them for delivering this within such a short timeframe and also thankful to our six nurses who stepped up to be vaccinators,” he added.
One of the PHK vaccinators, Ida Noor Nerina Ibrahim, said, “I am happy to do my part for health care workers and frontliners in Klang. Meanwhile, I hope everyone will remain vigilant and continue practising safe distancing and good personal hygiene so we can all come out of this crisis sooner than later.”
Nadia Nazihah Ab Sani, another PHK vaccinator also shared, “Being in charge of the paediatric ward at PHK makes me determined to volunteer as a vaccinator to raise awareness to parents so they will get vaccinated and protect their loved ones.”
