PUTRAJAYA, March 15 – Individuals who get an appointment for COVID-19 vaccine injection at private hospitals or clinics involved in the National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme  will not have to pay any charges, said National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister Khairy Jamaluddin.

“The charges are borne by the government,” he told a press conference on developments involving the progamme here today.

Elaborating, Khairy, who is Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, said COVID-19 vaccination centres (PPV) are set based on the address registered by the individual through the MySejahtera application.

“If the vaccination centre near the address given is a private hospital, then they will go to that private hospital. Everything is based on location because we want to facilitate this immunisation programme,” he said.

On developments regarding the COVID-19 vaccination protection scheme, Khairy said the National Vaccination Exigencies Fund for the payment of compensation to those facing side effects after the COVID-19 vaccine injection would be discussed at the Cabinet meeting on Wednesday and that the decision was expected to be announced on Monday.
