KUALA LUMPUR, May 19 — The Selangor state government is finalising its Covid-19 vaccine acquisition plan which will be announced in detail by Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari next week, after opening interest registration for companies to procure their own supply.

Its Public Health, Unity, Women and Family Development Committee chairman Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud said this is particularly important for workers in the state, given Selangor’s economic importance to the country.

“We already expected the vaccination plan will not take place very quickly, so while frontliners and the elderly are given priority we also want to focus on workers, who are equally important.

“Selangor greatly depends on these factories and industries, seeing as how they contribute to nearly 25 per cent of the nation’s GDP. We cannot afford to weaken our economic sectors,” she said during a special press conference on the Covid-19 situation in the state.
