PUTRAJAYA, 18 January 2022: Senior citizens will be able to walk in to obtain their COVID-19 vaccine booster shots at four vaccination centres in the Klang Valley starting 19 January.

In a statement on Monday (17 January), the Ministry of Health (MoH) said the four centres are the World Trade Centre Kuala Lumpur, Axiata Arena in Bukit Jalil, Ideal Convention Centre in Shah Alam and the Sokka Gakkai Hall in Klang.

Except for the Sokka Gakkai Hall in Klang which will open daily from noon until 4 p.m., the other three will operate daily from 2 p.m. until 8 p.m., except on public holidays.

According to the Ministry, as of yesterday, booster vaccine coverage for senior adults aged 60 and above in Selangor, the Federal Territories of Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka, Penang, and Sarawak had surpassed 70 per cent.

“Elderly citizens above 60 years old who have completed vaccination three months ago are eligible to get the shots.”

“Senior citizens who wish to walk-in are required to have a complete digital vaccination certificate on the MySejahtera application to smoothen the vaccination process,” it added.

Meanwhile, the MoH announced that off-site PPVs in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, and Putrajaya, as well as Negeri Sembilan, Melaka, Penang, and Sarawak, will be opened for walk-in vaccinations for the elderly beginning 24 January, with the full list of vaccination centres to be announced by ProtectHealth Corporation.
