20th March 2021: We are happy that most states in Peninsular and some parts of Sabah and Sarawak has commenced vaccination of private hospital healthcare workers except in Melaka which is delayed till end of the month but we did receive a promise that it may happen earlier. Our aim is to have the entire exercise streamlined better particularly with the Private General Practitioners.
Private hospitals [in those states that the program went well] worked very well with Ministry of Health, Jabatan Kesihatan Negeri and Pejabat Kesihatan Dearah in preparing the listing of specialist and staff to be vaccinated. In many states it was a daily updating exercise and the entire process has been smooth. Those who are still waiting to be vaccinated, the system will be enhanced once the new batch of vaccines are received.
Next week, doctors and staff in Wilayah will receive their second dose of Pfizer in the respective centres.
