The mega vaccination centre at Setia City is one of several centres set up by the government’s COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force to provide up to 30,000 vaccine shots a day.
Jean-François Naa, CEO of IHH Healthcare Malaysia, said, “The workforce from across our network in Malaysia – Pantai Hospitals, Gleneagles Hospitals, Prince Court Medical Centre and education arm International Medical University – are joining hands to help out at the mega vaccination centre from its commencement until immunity in the community is achieved as targeted. My full appreciation goes to them for their commitment and tireless contribution in providing care at the hospital, operating vaccination centres at their own hospital and now going the extra mile to further expedite the public vaccination programme in the country.”
