SHAH ALAM, June 2 — Subang Jaya assemblyman Michelle Ng Mei Sze is providing free transportation for the elderly and people with disabilities (OKUs) to vaccination centres (PPV) around Selangor and Kuala Lumpur.
She said the initiative, which started last week, targets the less fortunate to ensure they did not miss their appointments to get vaccinated.
“They need to make a reservation for this service two days before the date of the vaccination appointment after receiving the notification through the MySejahtera application.
“The drivers will pick up the relevant individuals at their respective homes to be sent to PPVs around Selangor and Kuala Lumpur besides managing the vaccination process until it is completed,” she said when contacted.
Ng said a total of 15 drivers aged between 20 and 55 have registered voluntarily and all of them were issued with an inter-district approval letter.
“Therefore, it is very important for everyone to play a role in helping individuals like this to ensure that the country achieves herd immunity,” she said, adding that about 50 senior citizens and OKUs have been assisted.
Those who want to get the service can contact the USJ 2 Rukun Tetangga chairman Har at 012-2731336.
