KUALA LUMPUR, July 20 — Selangor’s Covid-19 vaccination programme for industry workers is expected to receive 250,000 vaccine doses for its next phase in line with Operation Surge Capacity to accelerate the Klang Valley’s vaccine rollout.
Selangor state executive councillors Teng Chang Khim and Rodziah Ismail, who lead the Selvax Industry Committee, said in a joint statement that the vaccine deliveries are expected to arrive in stages between July 23 and 30.
Selvax Industry plans to inoculate one million workers with two million doses on a two-shot regimen.
“The current vaccine stock for the first and second dose of the initial phase amounts to approximately 40,000 doses. The implementation of the Selvax Industry Programme will be accelerated and implemented more consistently if the subsequent delivery of vaccine stock is according to schedule,” they said yesterday.
“We encourage companies/industries in Selangor and Klang Valley to register their interests and subsequently vaccinate their employees to achieve the aspirations of the Greater Klang Valley Vaccination Plan.”
Selvax Industry provides five vaccination centres (PPVs) at Tropicana Gardens Mall, Kota Damansara; Evo Mall, Bandar Baru Bangi; Hotel De Palma, Shah Alam; Aurora Place, Bukit Jalil; Kompleks Sukan PKNS, Kelana Jaya and Selcare Panel Clinics.
Registration Selvax can be made on Selangkah’s website. After completion of two doses under Selvax, which uses the Sinovac vaccine, fully inoculated people will receive a digital vaccine certificate on the Selangor state government’s Selangkah app.
A woman called CodeBlue’s office yesterday, asking for information on when her vaccine certificate — after she recently received her second dose under Selvax — would be displayed on the federal MySejahtera app that provides vaccine certificates to those inoculated under the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (PICK). She complained that hotlines were unable to help her.
“Selangor Mentri Besar and Coordinating Minister of JKJAV have both agreed on the process flow to enable the data of recipients from Selvax programme to be integrated and reflected in MySejahtera. The team on both sides are working on the technical aspects to enable this,” Selgate Healthcare CEO Muaz Omar told CodeBlue.
Vaccine Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said last July 5 that the only authorised digital Covid-19 vaccine certificate is from MySejahtera and that the federal Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) would work together with the Selangor state government on syncing vaccine certificates and the backend system between Selvax and PICK.
