As of now, there are 1.26 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine set aside for Phase 2, however, only 228,347 slots have been taken up so far.

Registrations for Phase 2 of the AstraZeneca vaccine were first only opened to the elderly above 60 years old. However, only 18% of the doses have been claimed.

As such, the remaining Phase 2 vaccines will be open to ALL, including those under the age of 60. However, the vaccines will only be available in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Penang, Johor, and Sarawak.

During the question and answer session Khairy said that in light of the new recommendations, lactating mothers who were previously rejected from getting the AstraZeneca vaccine will be reallocated.

They will be contacted by Special Committee on Ensuring Access To Covid-19 Vaccine Supply (JKJAV) or they can contact the JKJAV directly.

The new recommendations by JKJAV released on the 24th, changed the recommendation status of AstraZeneca for lactating mothers from “Available data on its safety is limited. Recommendation will be made after consultation” to “Suitable to be vaccinated.”

Also yesterday, 24th May 2021, the highest number of vaccine doses were provided to Malaysians at 95,000 doses given.
