KUALA LUMPUR, July 6 — Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the government is optimistic that all its efforts in the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme are on track, after the country exceeded its target of administering 313,761 vaccine doses a day yesterday.
He said the administering of 313,761 doses yesterday and the vaccination of more than 2.73 million people with two doses as of yesterday were in line with the third focus of the National People’s Well-being and Economic Recovery Package (Pemulih) announced on June 15 this year.
Muhyiddin said the third focus of Pemulih is to speed up vaccination for as many people as possible to ensure Malaysia can achieve herd immunity and enable the people to return to the kind of lives they were enjoying before the Covid-19 pandemic struck early last year.
“I would like to express my thanks and congratulations to YB Khairy Jamaluddin, YB Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba, all frontliners, volunteers and the people of Malaysia who have come together to make a success of the country’s biggest ever vaccination programme,” he added.
Muhyiddin said this in a video uploaded on his Facebook today. — Bernama
