KUALA LUMPUR: Selangor recorded the lowest vaccination rate as compared to other states in a 10-day period, despite registering a high number of Covid-19 fatalities.

Selangor Taskforce for Covid-19 chairman Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad said he was disappointed with the vaccination rate in the state under the Covid-19 National Immunisation Programme (NIP).

"After 24 days since I posted my tweet on May 28, observe the distribution of vaccines, registration and mortality percentage within 10 days in Selangor and other (states).

"Selangor is the lowest despite the Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, expressing his disappointment and disapproval over the Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) on June 7," he said on Twitter today.

According to the graphic posted by Dr Dzulkely, only 17.15 per cent of those in Selangor registered under the NIP had been inoculated as compared to the 34.94 per cent of deaths recorded in the state over the last 10 days, as of June 20.

He said Selangor has the lowest number of people being vaccinated, while also topping the Covid-19 fatalities list as compared to other states.

The statistic also noted that Kuala Lumpur had the highest number of residents being vaccinated at 52.30 per cent with a 10.64 per cent rate in Covid-19 deaths.

On June 7, Sultan Sharafuddin had said the ratio of vaccine dose supplies in the state was not balanced with the state's population of 6.5 million.

The ruler also expressed shock when Selangor only received 615,210 vaccine doses instead of 2.9 million doses as of June 1.

Dr Dzulkely, who is a former health minister, had also previously raised the issue of the low percentage of Selangor residents being vaccinated on May 28.

At that time, he pointed out that only 7.46 per cent of the state's population was vaccinated, and that there was 33.96 per cent death rate.

As of yesterday (June 21), the Special Committee for Ensuring Access to Covid-19 Vaccine Supply (JKJAV) said 6,051,198 individuals in the country have been inoculated with either the first or both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine.

In Selangor, a total of 10.2 per cent or 669,149 individuals have received the first dose of the vaccine, while 3.3 per cent or 154,422 residents were inoculated with both doses.

Kuala Lumpur has the highest percentage of its population receiving the vaccine at 42.7 per cent or 757,438 people receiving the first dose, and 8.2 per cent (145,906 people) having received both vaccine doses. - NST
