Malaysia will reopen COVID-19 vaccination for foreign workers in the Klang Valley, but it is NO LONGER FREE!
Here is what you need to know about this new COVID-19 vaccination initiative!
Vaccination For Foreign Workers : Used To Be FREE!
Malaysia earlier allowed all foreign workers, including those who are undocumented, to get their COVID-19 vaccination for FREE.
However, that walk-in vaccination programme for all foreigners only ran for a short time – from 9 until 22 August 2021.
The government seemed to have forgotten that we are only safe when everyone is safe.
Foreign Workers To Pay For Vaccination In Klang Valley!
On 23 September 2021, JKJAV appeared to have realised the folly of not vaccinating foreign workers.
They announced that foreign workers will be allowed to get vaccinated in the Klang Valley, but it will no longer be free!
Here are the details of the new COVID-19 vaccination programme for foreign workers :
The COVID-19 vaccination programme for foreign workers in the Klang Valley will start on Monday, 27 September 2021 and end on Wednesday, 6 October 2021.
The COVID-19 vaccination programme will run from 9 AM until 6 PM every day.
The COVID-19 vaccination programme for foreign workers in the Klang Valley will be conducted at a single vaccination centre :
CIDB PPV (COVID-19 Vaccination Centre)
CIDB Convention Centre,
Jalan Cheras, Kuala Lumpur
Foreign workers, or their employers, are encouraged to register online at https://vaccine.cidblink.com/ to receive an appointment, and to expedite their registration process at the PPV.
The registration can be done individually by the foreign workers themselves, or by their employers.
The cost of vaccinating each foreign worker will be RM 90 for two (2) doses.
After registering and paying online, the foreign worker will receive an appointment through email and/or SMS.
Those who are unable to register online may walk-in for their vaccination at the CIDB PPV. However, they must be prepared to pay for their vaccination at the PPV, and will only be vaccinated if there are available doses.
Employers who are sending more than 10 foreign workers in one day must send a company representative to help manage them at the CIDB vaccination centre. The employer is also responsible to ensure that they understand the process and forms that must be filled.
What To Bring?
On the day of their vaccinations, the foreign workers must bring :
- passport or other forms of identification (printed)
- smartphone with MySejahtera
- any evidence to show that they are working in the Klang Valley (pay slip, employer’s letter, etc.)
The CIDB PPV is only able to vaccinate up to 2,000 people a day.
Those with appointments will be given priority. Those who walk-in will be vaccinated on a first come, first served basis, based on available doses.
