Individuals who will be receiving Covid-19 vaccine shots need to go through five stations at a Vaccine Dispensing Centre (PPV) taking about 15 to 30 minutes including monitoring for side effects.

Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba said the recipient needs to go through five stations; the first stop is to screen for symptoms and body temperature; the second station is for registration; the third station for consultation and immunisation agreement; the fourth station is for the actual Covid-19 vaccine jab; and the fifth station is for observation.

“From the screening of temperature to getting the shot takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Even though the observation period is 15 minutes but we need to provide adequate time for monitoring,” he said in a media statement after conducting a simulation exercise for the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme here today.

Also present was the Coordinating Minister for the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme, Khairy Jamaluddin who is also Science, Technology and Innovation Minister.

The National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme will be implemented in three phases from February 24 with the first phase from February to April 2021 for frontline workers involving 500,000 people.

Phase 2 from April to August, will see the immunisation of high-risk groups, namely senior citizens and vulnerable groups aged 65 years and above, while the third phase involves adults aged 18 and above who will receive the vaccine between May this year and February next year, targeting more than 13.7 million people.

Khairy was earlier reported as saying that Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah, would be the first recipients of the vaccine shots on Wednesday which signifies the start of the National Covid-19 immunisation Programme which is beginning earlier than the scheduled date on February 26.

Dr Adham said the Health Ministry (MOH) is prepared for the first phase of the programme involving 572,588 frontline personnel registered as at February 21.
According to him, 532 PPVs have been identified throughout the country for the largest immunisation programme in the country.

He added that the PPVs have been categorised from one to eight based on the number of personnel and area of the place with a category one PPV manned by 10 MOH personnel and 10 non-MOH personnel.

In another development, Dr Adham said pregnant women as well as nursing mothers would not be given the shot based on a resolution of the Covid-19 Vaccine Supply Access Guarantee Special Committee (JKJAV).
“So far, JKJAV maintains that such group should not be given the vaccination,” he said.

Universiti Putra Malaysia Microbiology lecturer Associate Prof Dr Niazlin Mohd Taib was reported as calling for expecting women as well as nursing mothers to skip the jab to avoid side effects as there are no clinical evidence to support using the vaccine for this group.

The National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme is expected to be completed before the end of this year, ahead of its projected completion date in February next year.

The programme’s coordinating minister, Khairy Jamaluddin said the confidence was based on the level of efficiency and professionalism of the Health Ministry (MOH) and if the vaccine arrives on schedule.

In addition, during the third phase, Mega Vaccination Centres would be established, including in stadiums and conference centres, which will enable more people to be vaccinated at one time.

“However, it will all depend on whether we are able to secure the vaccine according to schedule.
“We have signed agreements with several companies including Pfizer, but we still rely on the capacity of their manufacturing facilities abroad if they fulfil the agreement or contract, I believe and am confident we can complete this before the end of this year,” he said through a video call on the Bicara Naratif programme on RTM tonight.

Khairy, who is also the Science, Technology and Innovation Minister, said currently besides Pfizer, Malaysia has agreements with four other vaccine manufacturers abroad, namely Sinovac from China, AstraZeneca (United Kingdom), Gamaleya (Sputnik V) from Russia and the single dose vaccine CamSinoBIO (China) which has yet to be assessed by the National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency (NPRA).

“Information and date issued by the vaccine manufacturers must be based on research conducted overseas that prove that the vaccine is safe and effective NPRA will only approve it when it is satisfied with vaccine.
“If NPRA approves all the vaccines for use in Malaysia, then our supply will increase and we would be able to speed up the immunisation process,” he said.

He said the government also suggested procuring the US-made single dose vaccine by Johnson & Johnson, and that single dose vaccines might be used in rural areas where accessibility maybe difficult for two dose vaccinations.

Regarding the Mega Vaccination Centres, Khairy said it would be established in the third phase (public phase) as it would be the biggest phase in the programme.
“Phase three will also involve the scheduling of the largest amounts of vaccine deliveries, if today it involves only hundreds of thousands, but in the middle of the year when phase three begins, the schedule of vaccine deliveries will reach up to millions, that is why we need a large vaccination centre to complete the vaccinations without having to store the vaccines at vaccine storage centres,” he said.

Thanks for the info. Hope the observation area wont be clogged with people who cant wear their masks properly. Imagine getting infected before the vaccination’s effects kick in. That’d be like tripping over before the finishing line
