AstraZeneca 2.0 (Below 60) : Not Open On 25 May 2021!

It was announced earlier that the AstraZeneca 2.0 programme would be open to seniors age 60 years or older, and only open up to those below 60 years after 26 May 2021.

However, people started sharing news that the government was opening up the AstraZeneca 2.0 programme to younger people about 2 days earlier, because of poor demand.

It started with an Oriental Daily news report that claimed that National Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, decided this morning to open up the AstraZeneca 2.0 programme earlier.

This was followed up by messages like this :

AstraZeneca Covid Vaccination program for people of KL, Selangor, Penang, Johor,Sarawak.

Dates: 25 May 6.00pm
Age : 18 and above

Please get your team member, parents, relatives and people in your neighbourhood registered.

Let this be part of your service to control the spread of the virus.
Registration starts at 6.00pm tomorrow

And even this very convincing graphic (on the left) really looks like the real thing. Compare it to the real one that JKJAV just released (on the right).

JKJAV was asked about this, and indirectly labelled this as fake news, saying that currently the AstraZeneca 2.0 programme is only open for senior citizens age 60 years and above.

If you need more convincing, take a look at the font of the viral graphic above. As you can see, the font is slightly different for the fake graphic.

In particular, the font for the number 60 is different. And the creator added the word “old”.
