Vaccination capacity in Selangor will be increased to 130,000 doses daily next month, says Khairy

SELANGOR:  Coordinating Minister of the National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme Khairy Jamaluddin denied allegations that the Federal Government did not send enough Covid-19 vaccines to the state of Selandor.

“The claim that the vaccine is not sent to Selangor is not right. We did send the vaccine and there is a balance in the Selangor.

“Selangor had received 1,367,306 doses of the vaccine and 322,606 doses had yet to be dispensed,” he told reporters at a press conference after opening the Tanjong Karang PPV yesterday.

Khairy was replying to Selangor Public Health, Unity, Women and Family Development Committee chairman Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud who claimed via Twitter that the latest vaccination capacity in Selangor was only 87,616 and if no additional vaccine doses were given, several vaccination centres (PPV) in the state had to be closed.

Khairy, who is Science, Technology and Innovation Minister, said during a prior meeting with Selangor Menteri Besar, he was informed that the vaccination capacity for Selangor in June was 40,000 doses daily.

“We distribute the vaccine supply based on the state’s capacity. I am not sure where the exco got the 80,000 figure from,” he said, adding that the vaccination capacity in Selangor will be increased to 130,000 doses daily next month.
