Malaysia is now getting its third vaccination shot (a booster shot) to help fight against the new Covid-19 variants such as Omicron.
Previously, those who want to get their booster shots are allowed to walk-in to shopping malls and healthcare facilities or register to be on the waiting list.
According to ProtectHealth Corporation chief executive officer Datuk Dr Anas Alam Faizli, walk-ins to off-site PPVs are no longer allowed.
Based on a report by New Straits Times, this was decided after reports of long queues and overcrowding at vaccination centres in the Klang Valley.

According to ProtectHealth, offsite PPVs are different from clinics.
Tip: call clinics beforehand. Some have run out of vax, some have over a month-long waiting list. https://t.co/U3nPmlIAyX
Only those with MySejahtera appointments will be entertained. Anas also added that everyone will get the appointment by age de-escalation.
However, those who are eligible for the booster shot but have not received a MySejahtera appointment can register on the waiting list at the PPVs of their choice.
How to register on the waiting list?
- Head over to ProtectHealth’s website.
- Click on ‘Find Vaccination Centre (PPV)‘
- Search for the registered PPV after entering your details.
Another way to get yourself registered is to make a call or email your preferred or nearest PPV.
To avoid double booking and slowing down the process, people are advised to only register at one PPV.
Those who have successfully registered will be on the waiting list.
They’ll be contacted by the PPV if the appointment is cancelled or there’s a no-show by others.
