The first batch of COVID-19 vaccines have finally reached the shores of Malaysia along with the launch of the National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme, hopefully bringing about the light behind the tunnel after a challenging year of battle against the global pandemic. The vaccination programme in Malaysia will be rolled out in three phases:

Phase

Period

Recipients

Phase 1

26 Feb - April 2021

Frontliners (healthcare workers, PDRM, RELA, BOMBA etc) | 500,000 people

Phase 2

April - August 2021

High-risk groups (senior citizens aged 60 and above, individuals with chronic illnesses, OKU) | 9.4 million people

Phase 3

May - Feb 2022

Adults aged 18 and above | 13.7 million people or more

Over 600 Vaccination Administration Centres (VACs) have been identified across the country, and additional temporary centres will also be set up at community halls, stadiums, universities, and other appropriate facilities based on need.
While most Malaysians will not be eligible for vaccination in Phase 1, registration has already opened up and you can do so within minutes on the MySejahtera App. After registering your consent, you’ll be notified once the next phase of vaccination begins.

Is The COVID-19 Vaccine Compulsory?

No, it is not. You will not be forced to take the shots if you don’t want to, although it is highly-encouraged in order to help Malaysia achieve herd immunity. If you're concerned about the safety or effectiveness of the vaccine, we encourage you to do more research and reading in order to make a more informed decision once the vaccines are available!
