MOSTI: Special Lanes Open For AstraZeneca Vaccine Volunteers

The Coordinating Minister for Covid-19 Immunisation has announced that a reservation system for the AstraZeneca vaccines will be open to people aged 18 and above on a first-come-first-served basis.

The vaccine will be given at a separate vaccination centre.

“In addition to giving the public the opportunity based on self-confidence to take the AstraZeneca vaccine, this is important to ensure that the vaccine program continues, and the country can achieve group immunity.

“All those aged 18 and above who are eligible for the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme can register for the vaccine in accordance with the approval given by the NRPA,” he said.

On April 26, Malaysia received the first batch of the AstraZeneca vaccine with a total dose of 268,800 that has been purchased via the Covid-19 Vaccines Global Access (COVAX) facility.

The country has also secured a total of 12.8 million doses from AstraZeneca, half of which will come via the COVAX facility mentioned previously.

The Ministry of Health (MoH) said Malaysia had signed an agreement in December last year to procure the AstraZeneca vaccine to cover three percent of the country’s population.

Additionally, Malaysia has vaccinated 1,335,245 individuals [including dose one and dose two] with Selangor being the highest vaccinated state in the country with 107,533 having taken the first dose based on JKJAV’s statistics.
