11/06/2021 10:41 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, June 11 -- Another mega vaccination centre in the Klang Valley, located at the MINES International Exhibition & Convention Centre (MIECC), Seri Kembangan will begin operations on  Monday (June 14).

The COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) announced in a statement today that the scheduled appointments for the first day at MIECC is limited to 4,900 people out of a maximum capacity of 8,000 to ensure the smooth running of the programme on its first day, in compliance with the standard operating procedures (SOP).

“The numbers will be increased in stages at the earliest possible convenience.

“Appointments at the MIECC vaccination centre, starting from 9 am till 8 pm, are being issued currently and the public are asked to check their MySejahtera app to verify the details of their COVID-19 vaccination appointment,” the statement read.

CITF said individuals with appointments are advised to not show up at MIECC too early, but around 30 minutes before their appointment time to avoid congestion.

The opening of the MIECC centre is in line with the government’s commitment to ensure that the vaccination rate is consistent and to speed up the country’s vaccination programme.

“Currently, the country’s vaccination rate has exceeded 150,000 doses daily,” the statement read.

The MIECC centre will be managed by ProtectHealth Corporation Sdn Bhd (ProtectHealth), a non-profit company owned by the Health Ministry.

The centre is part of the governments efforts to increase the vaccination rate through the opening of six mega vaccination centres, at locations such as Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC), Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC), Axiata Arena, Setia City Convention Centre (SCCC) and UiTM Puncak Alam.

Overall, 30,000 people can be vaccinated daily at all seven of the centres.
