KUALA LUMPUR, June 2 — A drive-through vaccination centre specifically for people with disabilities (OKU) and their carers in Ara Damansara will begin operating next week, the Health Ministry (MoH) confirmed today.

The centre, an initiative between the OKU Central non-governmental organisation and the MoH, will be situated at the Sime Darby Plantations headquarters in Ara Damansara, Selangor.

“(Yes) it’s valid according to the CITF,” said an MoH official when asked to verify a message announcing the centre.

According to the message, the centre will be offering vaccination to people with disabilities aged 18 and over residing in the Klang Valley, regardless of whether they were registered under the Social Welfare Department (JKM).

“Their carers driving them to the centres can also get vaccinated if they wish to, and this is for those above the age of 18 only.

“This programme is set to begin at the end of next week, please take this opportunity,” read the circular, stressing all entries submitted to them should be purely on a voluntary basis.
