MySejahtera now displays Vaccination & Risk Status in Latest Update

With 47.2% of Malaysia’s total population now having received two Covid-19 vaccine doses, more businesses have now reopen to serve the fully vaccinated.

A new standard operating procedure (SOP) for these individuals, before they can enter a premise, is showing their vaccination status that can be found on the MySejahtera app.

In a long-awaited, new update for the contact-tracing app, each individual’s vaccination status will now be displayed during check-in at each location they are wishing to patronise. It will also display the user’s risk level to notify others if they are Covid-19 close or casual contacts, alongside a new check-out feature.

The new MySejahtera update, and its features, was announced by Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin on his verified Twitter account on 2nd September 2021.

He shared that the update will be pushed out by the team behind the government’s MySejahtera app, which has been helping those in Malaysia navigate the Covid-19 pandemic.

It will include updates to ease Malaysians’ lives during the pandemic, such as the vaccination status and risk level of an individual when they are checking in, or scanning a location’s QR code, for contact tracing with the app.

Several photos Khairy shared with the announcement showed what the update will look like upon release. Alongside the unchanged check-in details that include the location, name, date and time of the individual, there will now be an additional two boxes to indicate their vaccination and risk status.

If you are fully vaccinated, a newly added yellow box will reflect this. If not, the box will be in white with the words “Not Vaccinated” under the vaccination status. Likewise, there will be a blue box to identify individuals who are low-risk, and which will turn red if they are classified as high risk, or are close or casual contacts with a confirmed Covid-19 patient.

Besides being able to easily access these statuses now, we can also use another new feature in the app too – a check-out button.

According to this tweet by Khairy, this button will require individuals to tap the button with the words “check-out” when they are leaving a premise. But no further scanning of the QR code will be required. This will now be another routine that individuals must add while they are out, and are reminded to do so.

The individual’s risk level and vaccination status will also be displayed during check-out.

The update will be clarified and improved upon over the coming weeks.
