The training involved immunisation programme policy, vaccination model, information technology and system requirements, vaccine cold-chain management, vaccine shot handling, side effects management, vaccination management monitoring and so on.
“The registration process and several training series will be handled by ProtectHealth as it involved private medical practitioners under Selgate in Selangor and those under the General Practitioners Vaccination Centre (PPVGP) model as well as mega PPV and industry PPV which are handled by ProtectHealth.
“This strategic collaboration will enable the transfer of knowledge to Selgate to start Selangor COVID-19 Vaccination Programme (SCVP) using vaccine bought directly from Pharmaniaga Berhad,” said the statement.
According to the statement, data of vaccine recipients will be coordinated through MySejahtera to ensure no one is left behind from vaccination apart from reporting complete and accurate data at national level.
