The vaccination centre (PPV) at Stadium Indera Mulia commenced operations as usual today (June 17).
Ipoh Echo’s visit to the grounds of the stadium earlier today saw the presence of Perakeans (mostly senior citizens) going in and out of the PPV’s premises.
Staff involved in monitoring the PPV’s operations are also seen hard at work.
According to the latest information provided by the Menteri Besar of Perak Dato’ Saarani Mohamad, the PPV wasn’t in operation yesterday (June 16) due to absence of appointments for second doses of the COVID-19 immunity vaccine jab.
“As we’re all informed, 21 days prior to yesterday was Wesak Day on May 26. Thus, there weren’t any first dose appointments made since it was a public holiday.
“Fret not, the closure of the PPV isn’t due to vaccine supply running out.
“We took into consideration that staff of the PPV had been working for seven consecutive days and decided that they were to be given an off day yesterday.
“Stadium Indera Mulia has commenced their vaccination affairs as usual today.
“Thus, I urge Perakeans who’ve gotten their vaccination appointments to go for it without hesitation,” he stated.
