IPOH, June 7 — The Ar-Ridzuan Medical Centre is among the latest private hospitals in Perak to administer Covid-19 vaccines for folks around here to expedite the vaccination process in the state.

The medical centre, which is now part of the national vaccination centres (PPV) here, was appointed by ProtectHealth Corporation Sdn Bhd (ProtectHealth) under the supervision of the Health Ministry.

A check by Malay Mail today at the PPV saw about 50 recipients receiving their first dose of the Sinovac vaccines.

The recipients, who were mostly senior citizens, started queuing up as early as 8.30am.

The vaccination process ran smoothly as the PPV was not congested compared to the larger vaccination centre at the Stadium Indera Mulia here.

Ample parking was also spotted, which is likely to reduce traffic congestion in the area.

Ar-Ridzuan Medical Centre group general manager Khairul Salleh Abdul Rani said that the recipients mostly hail from the Kinta district, namely Manjoi, Simpang Pulai and Ipoh.

“This programme will help the state government to achieve the 80 percent vaccination rate among the public fast and also to create herd immunity,” he said.

Despite being a private hospital, Khairul pointed out that the recipients will still have to register for their vaccination under the MySejahtera application.

“The individuals can not choose their vaccination or centres as we are part of the national immunisation programme. All the registrations will come under the MySejahtera application. We do not sell vaccines, it’s free for the public.

“At the moment, we are only providing the Sinovac vaccines and for the first two weeks we limit the recipients to 50 people a day. However, our actual capacity is about 200 recipients per day. We will increase to our maximum capacity soon,” he said.

He also said those who will be eligible for the vaccination at their centre at the moment are the people who are categorised as high risk or senior citizens as similar to the ongoing second phase vaccination programme nationwide.

He also revealed that the hospital has initially completed vaccinations for their 67 hemodialysis patients without any complication.

“The first dose was given on May 3 and the second dose was given on May 24. All the patients were safe and did not experience any discomfort despite having allergic histories. We can be assured that vaccination is safe,” he said.

Khairul also said the PPV will be operating from 9am to 4pm daily, even during public holidays, until the third phase of the national vaccination programme.

“Recipients can check their vaccination appointment via MySejahtera and we will also call and inform them a day before their appointment to make sure none of the individuals missed the vaccination,” he said.

He also said the hospital is also planning to cooperate with student volunteers from Perak to vaccinate members of government-linked companies and government agencies soon.

Two other private hospitals, namely the Perak Community Specialist Hospital and Hospital Pantai Manjung in Seri Manjung are also administering the vaccines in Perak for now.

On May 30, National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said the government is targeting to designate 1,000 general practitioner (GP) clinics and private hospitals nationwide as vaccination centres before June 30.

接获预约前来的民众,被安排先在走廊的椅子上等候。

(怡保7日讯)怡保再多一家私人医药中心加入私人医院疫苗接种中心(PPVHS)计划下,协助政府加速人民接种疫苗。

这医药中心是怡保阿尔利祖安(Ar- Ridzuan)医药中心,这医院在国家元首诞辰公共假期的这一天,加入成为区内另一所提供冠病疫苗接种服务的私人医院。

该医药中心疫苗接种中心于今日首日提供服务,便为50名来自怡保区内的民众接种疫苗。

中心有能力为200人接种

医药集团总经理凯鲁沙烈指出,该医药中心是于5月7日获得Protect Health企业有限公司委任成为区内其中一所提供冠病疫苗接种服务的私人医院。目前,院内每天为50民众提供疫苗接种服务,不过,基于院内的资源有能力为200人提供服务,因此院方希望在较后时申请增加接种人数。

他说,接种中心的服务时间是从上午9时至下午4时,一般的公共假期也会不休,继续提供服务。

他表示,今日前来的接种者,来自新邦波赖、万锐、佳邦等地区,并且是第二阶段接种疫苗者,即长者。院方这次参与政府的行动,主要是要协助政府加速国内的接种疫苗计划,以达到80%人口免疫的情况。

“民众对本医药中心成为另一所接种中心的反应很热烈,不少人都来询问如何登记接种。目前,前来的接种者都是透过Mysejahtera登记,而名单则是由政府所提供的。院内为接种者接种的是科兴疫苗。”

他希望民众要检查本身的预约时间,以免错过了接种时间。无论如何,他指出,院方也会在预约前一天联络接种者,以提醒他们前来接种。

他说,院方早在5月3日已为院内的67名肾病病人进行接种,如今也已完成2剂的疫苗接种。除了肾病病人,院内医护人员也进行了接种,大家都没有面对任何问题,所以民众不要对接种感到担心。

另一方面,他表示,该医药中心也有意愿参与政府的计划,随著流动接种服务到郊区为民众服务。

霹雳人民医院也于上周成为私人医院疫苗接种中心。

通过 Mysejahtera登记接种疫苗者,被安排到私人医院进行接种。
