National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (NIP) Coordinating Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin had in a press conference said that the Government will be setting up walk-in vaccination centres throughout the nation somewhere in September this year.
Nevertheless, the Government will be giving priority to those who have already signed up for the appointments through either the NIP’s online portal or the MySejahtera application before opening up to those who had not register themselves/
According to Malay Mail, there are currently 14.6 million people who have registered themselves for the vaccination, and Khairy said that he expects all of them to have receive at least 1 dose by the end of August.
“Once we clear the people who have already pre-registered, that means people who are waiting for their appointment, and I think we can clear them hopefully by the end of August or early September, then we can introduce walk-ins,” he added.
Khairy explains that this is to be fair for those who have registered themselves, but have yet to receive an appointment notification. After that, they will open up for the walk-ins who have yet to register themselves.
Those interested will be able to just show up at these walk-in vaccination centres, get registered and get vaccinated on the spot.
Meanwhile, he also mention that Malaysia so far have more than 3.6 million people who already received their 1st dose, while 1.4 million more having already received their second jab.
