Selangor Journal: Transportation rebate to PPV will be expanded for teenagers below 18 years old
AMPANG, Sept 23 — The RM20 transportation rebate for vaccination centres across the state will be extended to teenagers aged 12 to 17 years old.
Menteri Besar Selangor (Incorporated) (MBI) Corporate Social Responsibility head Ahmad Azri Zainal Nor said the application window for the rebate is now open, and can be used from October 1 until November 30.
He said Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari has agreed to expand the initiative to vaccine recipients aged 12 to 17, as well as the extension of the programme’s duration.
“For parents who have already used the initiative, they can also reapply on behalf of their children,” Ahmad said after handing over a donation of RM50,000 to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty To Animals (SPCA) Selangor yesterday.
He added that approximately 14,000 have benefitted from the initiative, since the Kita Selangor 2.0 Package was announced in June.
“Out of the total, some 10,000 individuals have redeemed the rebate. For this initiative MBI has spent RM100,000 from the total RM1 million allocated for the programme,” Ahmad said.
Previously the transportation rebate programme was only open to individuals aged 50 and above in Selangor.
Subsequently in July the Menteri Besar announced the rebate would be offered to all Selangor citizens regardless of their age.
