22 MARCH 2022 – ProtectHealth Corporation Sdn. Bhd. (ProtectHealth) would like to highlight that since the beginning of National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme (PICK), paediatricians have always been allowed to administer vaccination. On 8 March 2021, GPs were invited to participate in PICK followed by private hospitals on 30 March 2021. On 30 April 2021, the Ministry of Health agreed to allow specialist clinics and ambulatory care centres to be involved in PICK.
Pursuant to the National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme for Children (PICKids), ProtectHealth has issued a press release to encourage Private Paediatricians and Private Specialist Clinics to participate in the programme, to assist and work together with ProtectHealth in maximising the implementation of PICKids in a press release issued on 31 January 2022. (Please refer to the embedded link of the press release)
ProtectHealth would also like to highlight that Paediatricians can vaccinate at any of our PPVs and they can join as a participating Specialist Clinic, or if Paediatricians are providing services in Private Hospitals, they can participate through PPV Private Hospitals.
“To date, over 900 GPs, 48 private hospitals and 4 paediatric specialist clinics are on board for the PICKids programme. We urge more Paediatricians to join in this national agenda to protect our families. Please visit our website at https://vaksincovid.protecthealth.com.my for registration to provide the vaccination service.
“Children cases in COVID-19 have been increasing rapidly including severe conditions and fatalities. We are also worried about the Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome (MIS-C) in children. As such, we appeal to parents to ensure your children are protected against the COVID-19 virus. Please protect our children, our family, and by doing this we will protect everyone” said ProtectHealth Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Dr Anas Alam Faizli.
