As of August 2nd, the walk-in vaccination program has begun successfully with the goal of accelerating immunisation and attaining targeted herd immunity by October. However, there were some confusion over the term used, and quite a number of fake news have been circulating around with the public believing that anyone could walk into any vaccination centre and get their shots.
Well, that’s NOT the right way. Let us clear the air for you so that you’ll have a better picture on what’s going on.
Who Are The Individuals Allowed For Walk-Ins?
Only those who meet the following criteria will be eligible for a walk-in vaccination:
- Those who have not yet received a vaccine appointment
- Those who had cancelled their previous vaccine appointment, or
- Those who have NOT registered for vaccination
NEW UPDATES For Senior Citizens:
Khairy Jamaluddin, the coordinating minister of the National COVID-19 Immunisation Program, clarified a few issues on 2nd August, 2021:
- Senior citizens can still walk-in for vaccines;
- They can do so at any PPV in the Klang Valley
- Senior citizens are not confined to the nine PPVs used for walk-in vaccinations by younger adults.
