Amirudin added that 65.5% of adults in Selangor have received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine

"Herd immunity is expected to be achieved when 80% of the adult population is vaccinated," he added.

He also noted that the free SelVax Community programme will continue until 11 August to expedite the implementation of the National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme.
