Now that it seems like the third vaccincation jab, or the booster shot, for Covid-19 is inevitable, it has naturally raised questions from concerned citizens.

The biggest question people are asking now is: how do you get it?

2 doses and done

Most people assume that with 2 doses under their skin, they would be safe from Covid-19. However, with rising strains such as the Omicron, booster shots are quickly becoming neccessary.

Currently, the booster shots are considered optional, but it is recommended to get them.

For receipts of the Sinovac vaccine and all citizens above the age of 60, booster jabs must be taken before February 2022 or they will no longer be considered Fully Vaccinated.

Are they free?

Previously, the two doses of vaccines were provided free for all Malaysians under the vaccination roll-out. Many simply had to wait for their appointment date.

Now, the boosters are the same, being provided free-of-charge to citizens through the booster roll-out programme. However, similarly, most of the rakyat will need to wait patiently for their turn by checking their MySejahtera app.

Those keen to get their boosters as soon as possible can also look for the closest PPV center here, where they can sign up to be the waiting list and be called in whenever there’s a free spot.

It is also advisable to reach out to members of your community and ask around for walk-in vaccine drives happening within your vicinity.

Many community centers are also being set up in shopping malls and the like to make it even easier for everyone to receive their boosters.

However, private booster jabs are now also available at private clinics or hospitals, so those who may urgently want a booster shot may do so by paying out of pocket.
