Walk-in vaccination for Foreigners now Abolished, Appointments must be Made

NewsWalk-in vaccination for Foreigners now Abolished, Appointments must be Made

Following a series of incidents where foreigners were reported to have violated the SOPs while queuing up for their vaccination at vaccination centres (PPV), the COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) has finally announced that the Bukit Jalil National Stadium PPV will no longer accept walk-ins.

Starting tomorrow (23 August), the Bukit Jalil National Stadium PPV will replace the walk-in facility with the appointment method.

It is said that this ensures the vaccination process is being conducted in a safer and more conducive atmosphere.

“Foreigners who have not yet registered for the National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme (PICK) must do so either through MySejahtera, the PICK hotline at 1800-888-828 or the website, so an appointment can be given.” they said, as reported by NST.

In addition, the foreigners who go to a PPV by appointment must prove they are a resident of the Klang Valley by bringing relevant documents such as work cards, utility bills, or other documents that shows their residential address.

On the other hand, CITF said that the walk-in vaccination will still be available for Malaysians in the Klang Valley but it will be limited to only 13 specific PPVs.

This is mainly because of the declining number of walk-ins for Malaysians on a daily basis since 2 August.

The PPVs that have walk-ins available starting 23 August for Malaysians are:

  • KL Convention Centre (KLCC) (HCO F, G and H)
  • Axiata Arena Bukit Jalil (A, B)
  • Ideal Convention Centre (IDCC)
  • Shah Alam (HCO B)
  • Bangi Avenue Convention Centre (BACC)
  • Hotel Wyndham Acmar Klang
  • Petaling Jaya City Council Civic Centre
  • Kuala Selangor Closed Stadium
  • Dewan Seri Bernam, Sabak Bernam, and
  • Kuala Langat Municipal Council Sports Complex Hall

Meanwhile, Le Pavilion Gamuda Garden, Gombak and Bukit Beruntung Golf Resort will open on 25 August, while Galaxy Mall Ampang and Universiti Multimedia, Cyberjaya will open on 26 August for walk-in vaccinations.

CITF also mention that Malaysians who missed their 2nd dose appointments can visit any of the 13 listed PPVs close to their residence, and they may be referred to other PPVs if a particular PPV did not offer the same vaccine they had for their first dose.

“Walk-ins are also based on the first-come, first-serve basis depending on the supply capacity at the respective PPVs. Anyone who comes for walk-in vaccination on a day where supply has run out will be placed on a list and asked to return the next day.” CITF added.
