Dr Noraini also stated that she had met Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin yesterday to propose that IPT students and staff be considered priority in receiving COVID-19 vaccinations in their respective states. 

According to Dr Noraini, the ministry estimates that 1.296 million vaccine doses will be required to vaccinate 648,000 students. In view of that, the vaccination centres (PPVs) at IPTs might be turned into designated PPVs for IPT students and staff.
