KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 11 — There will be walk-in Covid-19 vaccination centres in Penang just for non-citizens soon, Health Minister Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said today.
He said these will be modelled after the dedicated centres for migrant workers that were set up recently in the Klang Valley, but did not specify a start date.
“This will be done to mop up all non-Malaysians in Penang who may have not received vaccination through Pikas or are reluctant to come out and get vaccinated,” he said referring to the Public-Private Partnership Covid-19 Industry Immunisation Programme.
Hundreds of migrant workers in Penang had gone to the walk-in vaccination centres for locals last Thursday, when the government started the programme.
Among them was the Pesta site in Sungai Nibong, which drew at least 100 foreigners at about 7am.
