PETALING JAYA – Those aged 18 and above will be able to walk into any integrated vaccination centre (PPV) in the Klang Valley for their Covid-19 booster dose starting Thursday (Jan 27), says the Health Ministry.
In a statement Wednesday (Jan 26), the ministry said walk-ins would now be allowed at the following PPVs – World Trade Centre, Kuala Lumpur; Axiata Arena in Bukit Jalil; Ideal Convention Centre, Shah Alam; and Dewan Soka Gakkai, Klang.
The ministry added that this was an effort to increase booster dose intake to ensure as much of the population is protected against more contagious Covid-19 variants such as Omicron.
In the Klang Valley alone, 68.2% of the adult population have been inoculated with a booster dose, right behind Sarawak, which recorded the highest booster coverage so far with 69.5%.
As of Jan 25, 2022, a total of 11,119,363 or 47.5% of the population in Malaysia have received their booster dose – this includes those 18-years-old and above.
