PUTRAJAYA, Aug 22 — Walk-in vaccination for all Malaysians in the Klang Valley will be continued at 13 specific vaccination centres (PPVs).
This is because the number of walk-ins for Malaysians was found to be dropping day by day since it began August 2, said the COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF), in a statement today.
CITF said from tomorrow, the nine walk-in PPVs opened are KL Convention Centre, Axiata Arena Bukit Jalil, Ideal Convention Centre, Shah Alam, Bangi Avenue Convention Centre, Wyndham Acmar Hotel, Klang, Petaling Jaya City Council Civic Centre, Kuala Selangor Closed Stadium, Dewan Seri Bernam, and Kuala Langat Municipal Council Sports Complex Hall.
Starting from August 25 and 26, four PPVs would also be opened, namely, at Le Pavilion Gamuda Garden Gombak, Bukit Beruntung Golf Resort, Galaxy Mall Ampang and Multimedia University in Cyberjaya.
CITF said individuals who missed the second dose of the vaccination could go to any of the 13 PPVs listed closest to their homes.
It also said the individuals would be referred to other PPVs if the PPV did not offer the same vaccine they had for their first dose.
CITF said walk-ins are also on a first-come-first-served basis depending on the availability of vaccine supply at the PPV.
If the supply of vaccine at the PPV has exhausted, the walk-in individuals will be placed in a list and asked to come again the next day.
For non-Malaysians in the Klang Valley, CITF said the walk-in approach in practice at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium PPV would be replaced with the appointment method.
This means, the PPV would no longer accept walk-ins by foreign nationals from tomorrow to ensure the vaccination process is conducted in a safer and more comfortable atmosphere.
Non-Malaysians who have yet to register for the National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme must do so via MySejahtera, PICK line at 1800-888-828 or the website, www.vaksincovid.gov.my, for appointment.
CITF said both Malaysians at walk-in PPV and non-Malaysians with PPV appointments must prove they are residents of the Klang Valley.
This could be done by bringing the relevant letters or documents such as employment cards, utility bills or any related documents.
It said the walk-in method for Malaysians in other states other than the Klang Valley would continue as normal depending on the respective states.
