There are three ways to do so effective 15 March, in line with the phased closure of offsite integrated vaccine delivery centres that begins this month.

Effective 15 March 2022 (Tuesday), all integrated vaccine delivery centres (PPVs) in Malaysia's Klang Valley — namely PPV World Trade Center KL, PPV Axiata Bukit Jalil, PPV IDCC Shah Alam, and PPV Sokha Gakai Klang, have ceased operations.

This is part of the phased closure of offsite PPVs beginning this month, when the booster dose administration rate for adults reaches 64%, as announced by ProtectHealth on 9 March.

As of 16 March, 66.2% of the eligible adult population has received a booster dose, the Ministry of Health (MOH) said on Thursday (17 March). 

Accordingly, MOH shared that individuals who have not yet completed their vaccinations or received their booster dose, as well as parents who want to bring a child to either dose of the vaccine, can do so via the following methods:

  1. Book a vaccination slot at your selected PPV. Reservations can be made through a link that will be sent with the appointment to your MySejahtera application.
  2. Visit a nearby private medical practitioner who offers pediatric vaccinations and booster doses. A list of these practitioners can be found on the ProtectHealth website here.
  3. Walk in to an offsite PPV that is still in operation. Individuals can review the list of offsite PPVs, which will be updated from time to time on the ProtectHealth website here

The MOH stressed: "The Omicron variants remain serious and can cause severe complications, especially to those who have not yet received complete vaccination or have not been vaccinated at all, as well as high-risk groups such as the elderly and individuals with comorbidities who have not received booster doses.

"To ensure that the transition phase to endemic, which will begin on 1 April 2022, can be implemented safely, the main focus is to foster community awareness and solidarity, strengthen individual responsibility for SOP compliance, and expand the reach of existing vaccination programmes."
