All Sinovac recipients must obtain their 3rd vaccine dose (booster shot) by February 2022 or they will no longer be considered “fully vaccinated”, according to Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin.

This means that your MySejahtera status will change from the yellow “Fully Vaccinated” status to white, “Not Fully Vaccinated”, which will restrict your entry into areas like restaurants, shopping malls, stores, and more.

Additionally, all senior citizens above the age of 60, regardless of vaccine taken, must also take the booster shot or they too will no longer be considered fully vaccinated.

This decision was made under the guidance of the World Health Organisation (WHO) and considering the arrival of the Omicron Covid-19 variant in Malaysia.

The proposal was approved at Covid-19-Booster Immunisation Special Task Force (CITF-B) meeting on 8 December 2021.

The mega vaccination centres will be established again for the booster shot roll-out, starting with the Klang Valley.

For those who have taken the Sinovac vaccine, as well as the elderly above 60 years old, do check your MySejahtera for your booster vaccine appointment!
