Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced today that all adults will be fully vaccinated by October after the expedition of the Covid-19 National Immunisation Programme (NIP) to achieve an inoculation rate at 500,000 doses daily.
Originally, 80 percent of the population was to receive a complete dose by the first quarter of 2022. However, the target was then accelerated to December following the discovery of more aggressive variants and the sharp increase in positive cases.
As a result, states are expected to record vaccination rates exceeding 50 percent by the end of August, and 70 percent by September.
So if you have not gotten your vaccination date yet, not to worry — you would be receiving your appointment soon!
