The local branch of the Taiwanese non-profit Buddhist organisation will be the first non-governmental organisation to work with the government by offering its Jing Si Hall in Kepong to help with speeding up the local vaccination rate.

The foundation will also provide their teams of volunteers on site to assist in ushering participants.

The vaccination site will be divided into six sections and can administer an estimated 600 doses of vaccines per day.

“Members of the public notified by the MySejahtera App to get their vaccination at the Jing Si Hall will get their vaccine administered at the site on the scheduled date and time.

“However, for safety and crowd control reasons, we would like to call upon the public to not visit the Jing Si Hall without an appointment, to avoid causing inconvenience,” Tzu Chi Foundation Malaysia wrote in a Facebook post.
