Port of Tanjung Pelepas and Johor Port Authority Collaborate to Open PPVIN for Maritime and Logistics Industry Workers in Johor

Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas Sdn Bhd (PTP), a member of MMC Group and Johor Port Authority (JPA) have successfully launched an Industry Vaccination Centre (PPVIN) for maritime and logistics sector workers, in support of the National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme.

The programme is a joint initiative by the Ministry of Transport together with the Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation and Ministry of Health with JPA and PTP to act as the co-host of the PPVIN.

Open daily from 8.30am to 5.00pm, the PPVIN located at Wisma B PTP will operate from 3 August 2021 until 11 October 2021. The centre is set to accommodate up to 1,000 capacity daily and approximately 27,000 vaccine recipients until end of the programme.

The opening of the new PPVIN was graced by YB Datuk Seri Ir Dr Wee Ka Siong, Minister of Transport Malaysia. Also present were YB Datuk Haji Hasbi Haji Habibollah, Deputy Minister of Transport Malaysia, Tuan Haji Rosnan Fathlal, Chairman of JPA and other Federal and State Government officials.

PTP readiness, proactive drive in ensuring the success of this effort as well as its strategic location surrounded by industrial locality have made the PPVIN the best venue to provide most comfortable environment for all parties involved including those who will take the vaccines accordingly.

The opening of the PPVIN will not only serve PTP’s commitment to serve the state of Johor and the nation in achieving herd immunity to end the pandemic but also to further extend its Corporate Social Responsibility reach towards the sustainability of the surrounding community with the proactive participation of PTP employees as volunteers of the PPVIN centre throughout the programme.
