Vax exercise creates safe campus bubbles

Date:

KUALA LUMPUR: The Higher Education Institution (IPT) Student Vaccination Programme will enable the Covid-19 vaccination rate to be accelerated to form safe campus bubbles and achieve herd immunity against the coronavirus.

National Student Consultative Council (MPPK) president Muhammad Amir Asyraf Mohd Sabri said under the programme, IPT students who have not been vaccinated can get their vaccine shots at any vaccination centre (PPV) offering walk-in vaccination.

He said this is an indication that the government, especially the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE), continues to listen to the views and expressions of students.

“MPPK also urges all students who have not received their vaccination appointments, to walk-in those PPVs to get their vaccine shots. The role of the students is also vital in ensuring that every IPT campus nationwide becomes a safe campus,” he said in a statement today (Sept 9).

On Wednesday, Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba was reported as saying that over 200,000 IPT students who have not been vaccinated can go to walk-in vaccination centres to get the jabs.

MoHE Minister Datuk Seri Dr Noraini Ahmad in a statement on her Facebook also said that IPT students only need to bring their matriculation and identity card (IC) for confirmation at the PPV while new students need to provide admission offer letter and IC. – Bernama
