The government is targeting to vaccinate 80% of the Pahang population including the Orang Asli and those living in rural areas by October, before the monsoon season hits the East Coast at year end, said Khairy Jamaluddin.

The coordinating minister for the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme said that in a press conference with Pahang Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail on Friday (June 18), adding that the government will supply 440,000 vaccine doses to the state starting July, in addition to the 180,000 vaccine doses supplied this month.

Khairy added that the government would also implement a mobile outreach vaccination programme in rural areas in the state, as well as introducing more vaccination centres (PPV) in all districts in Pahang.
