KUALA LUMPUR, June 3 — The Sungai Besi Military Camp here has been selected as the drive-through vaccination centre (PPV) for military personnel and their families as a pilot project which will be implemented soon, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said.
“If it proved to be a success with the military personnel and their family members, then more drive-through PPVs will be opened for the public. The locations will be announced later.
“The drive-through vaccination is easier, safer and faster. While expediting the vaccination process, it can also prevent and curb the spread of COVID-19 among the public more effectively,” he told a press conference after attending the launch of the Armed Forces COVID-19 Modular Hospital at the Tuanku Mizan Military Hospital here today.
Ismail Sabri, who is also Senior Minister (Security Cluster), said the construction of the hospital was expected to be completed in three months using the concept of pre-fabricated modules.
It will have 64 beds, including 16 in the intensive care unit, he said.
