Senior citizens aged 60 and above who are anxious to get their Covid-19 booster shots can walk-in at any offsite vaccination centres (PPV) starting Monday, 24 January 2022.

According to Bernama, senior citizens who are going for the booster shot need to show their MySejahtera application at any offsite PPVs in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka, Penang and Sarawak to prove that they have been fully vaccinated.

The walk-in services will start at 2 pm on the days the offsite PPVs are in operation.

Those who are aged 18 and older (apart from senior citizens) who have yet to get appointments via MySejahtera can contact and register with the PPVs listed under the website.

To date, there are now more than 2,000 onsite PPVs, 177 offsite PPVs and 221 outreach PPVs run by private medical practitioners (PPS) and health NGOs under ProtectHealth with a capacity to administer more than 300,000 vaccine doses daily.

In December 2021, Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin announced that the booster shot period for Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccine recipients has been shortened from 6 months to 3 months.

The decision was made based on the data and recommendations by the Ministry’s technical group.
