Let private GPs continue giving vaccines, ex-minister tells CITF

PETALING JAYA: The Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) should continue roping in private general practitioners (GP) in the government’s vaccination efforts, former health minister Dzulkefly Ahmad said.

“Like it or not, the Klang Valley has a high number of individuals who have not registered under the MySejahtera system, so we cannot conclude that we have hit high levels of vaccinations,” he said when responding to reports that 741 clinics in Selangor had received notices that they would no longer be getting vaccination appointments.

He said GPs would be the best bet for those left out from the MySejahtera system to get vaccinated.

“Closing mega vaccination centres (PPV) is a good move, because it involves high costs when a large number of people have already received their vaccines.

“However, the CITF should not end contracts to utilise private clinic facilities, but should instead continue them to enable those who are not yet vaccinated to get access to the vaccines.”
