PROTECTHEALTH Corp Sdn Bhd along with the Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) and the Health Ministry (MoH) will open more than 30 integrated large-scale vaccination centres (PPV) nationwide before July 19.
Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba said ProtectHealth has reached 46% vaccination rate to date, which is more than its target of 30% under CITF.
“On the daily dose capacity, ProtectHealth has achieved its target of 80,000 dose per day before June.
“As at end-June, the number of doses administered by ProtectHealth stood at 110,000,” he said during a virtual press briefing today.
The minister said MoH had set a new target for ProtectHealth to increase its vaccination rate to 60% before end-August.
The MoH appointed ProtectHealth in March as the executor of private general health practitioners’ involvement in the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme.
ProtectHealth was incorporated in 2016 under MoH as a non-profit company.
