The health ministry is prepared to implement the first phase of the National Covid-19 Immunisation Plan once the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines reach in Malaysia on Feb 26, says minister Dr Adham Baba.

He said the vaccine delivery dry runs to Belaga Health Clinic in Sarawak on Jan 29 and Bintulu Hospital on Jan 30 had gone smoothly without any problems.

He also said the test runs were to ensure that the supply of vaccines from the US pharmaceutical giant, Pfizer, in Puurs, Belgium could be kept at ultra-low temperatures throughout the journey to Malaysia.

“The dry run is important and the input data logger which monitors the delivery process showed satisfactory results,” he told reporters after introducing the online teaching application on Covid-19 yesterday.

Adham said Covid-19 vaccine storage for the first phase, equipped with facilities such as the ultra-low temperature freezer (ULTF), was to ensure that the vaccines are maintained at the correct temperature before being removed and distributed to vaccination sites.
