National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister Khairy Jamaluddin recently said the current aim is to reach a daily vaccination rate of 200,000 doses a day by July, followed by 300,000 doses a day by August — with more vaccine shipments expected soon along with the opening of more vaccination centres.

He has consistently stated that he expects the target of vaccinating 80 per cent of the Malaysian population to be achieved by the end of this year.
