Negeri Sembilan mulls using Nilai Indoor Stadium as vaccination centre

The Negeri Sembilan government is mulling to use the Nilai Indoor Stadium near here as a Vaccine Dispensing Centre (PPV) in the state for phase three of the COVID-19 National Immunisation Programme.

Negeri Sembilan state secretary Datuk Dr Razali Ab Malik said the move was to support and help the government in implementing the programme in the best manner possible.

“However, the Negeri Sembilan Health Department (JKNS) is still studying the suitability of the location.

“If it is approved to be used as a PPV, all preparations will be done under the COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) at the Negeri Sembilan-level,” he said when contacted by Bernama here today.

Dr Razali, who is also Negeri Sembilan CITF chairman advised people in the state to register for vaccination through the MySejahtera application; or at www.vaksincovid.gov.my; or via the hotline at 1800-888-828.

On Feb 24, Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Aminuddin Harun said a total of 37 health clinics throughout the state would be used as PPVs, while 16 halls had been identified for the purpose in phases two and three of the immunisation programme.
