They are sometimes shared with this video of National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme coordinating minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, saying that anyone can walk in for their COVID-19 vaccination from 1 August onwards.
Walk-In Vaccination In Malaysia : The Facts
The viral messages are not accurate, and here are the FACTS…
Fact #1 : Operation Surge Capacity Runs From 26 July – 1 August
On 16 July 2021, National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme coordinating minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, announcedOperation Surge Capacity.
This 5-day Operation Surge Capacity aims to give the adult population in KL and Selangor at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by 1 August 2021.
To vaccinate the remaining 1.3 million adult population in KL and Selangor, the CITF (COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force) will need to sustain 272,000 vaccinations per day.
Fact #2 : Walk-In Vaccination After Operation Surge Capacity
In a video that is often circulated with the viral message, Khairy Jamaluddin actually said that walk-in vaccination will only happen AFTER Operation Surge Capacity is completed.
So the actual date when people can walk-in and get their COVID-19 vaccination is predicated on the success of Operation Surge Capacity.
If Operation Surge Capacity is extended, then this option will likely be delayed.
Even if Operation Surge Capacity succeeds by 1 August, walk-in vaccination can only happen the next day – 2 August 2021.
So it’s best to WAIT for the official kick-off announcement, and not accept some random WhatsApp message at face value.
Fact #3 : Walk-In Vaccination Only In KL + Selangor
The first viral message also falsely suggests that anyone in Malaysia will be able to walk into any PPV to get vaccinated.
This walk-in vaccination option will only be available in KL and Selangor vaccination centres (PPVs) to “mop up anybody that has not received their first dose in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor”.
Fact #4 : Walk-In Vaccination Also For Undocumented
Surprisingly, undocumented people in Malaysia will also be allowed to walk into any PPV in KL and Selangor to get vaccinated.
This is very good news, as it is important that EVERYONE gets vaccinated, irrespective of their status in Malaysia.
Khairy Jamaluddin said, “This is so that we can ‘mop up’ anybody that has not received their first dose in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.
Some people may not have been captured by the Statistics Department’s data, while there are those who are undocumented.“
Fact #6 : Walk-In Vaccination Only For Those Without Appointments
Another fact not mentioned by the first message – only those who do NOT have a vaccine appointment yet, will be allowed to walk into a PPV in KL or Selangor.
Khairy Jamaluddin said, “Those who have already received their appointment dates are advised to stick to their appointments. Do not walk in.“
Fact #7 : Sinovac Will Only Be Used For Dose 2
On 15 July 2021, Malaysia Health Minister, Adam Baba, announced that Sinovac will no longer be used for new vaccinations, and the remaining stock would be used to complete current vaccinations.
Adham Baba said, “About half of the 16 million have already been distributed, so the rest will be used to cover second doses. For those who have yet to be vaccinated, they will receive the Pfizer vaccine.“
Hence, the second viral message with the list of vaccination centres offering Sinovac for walk-in vaccinations is FALSE.
Fact #8 : CITF Confirmed This Fact Check
On 19 July 2021, JKJAV issued a statement by the COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) addressing the viral messages :
the walk-in programme will be updated and announced LATER
not all vaccination centres (PPVs) will be open for walk-in vaccinations.
So there you have it – the definitive debunk of the two fake viral messages above – from JKJAV and CITF.

A total of 206 staff at the IDCC vaccination centre just tested positive for COVID-19!
Find out what’s going on, and what you should do if you were recently at the IDCC vaccination centre!
206 IDCC Vaccination Centre Staff Positive For COVID-19!
On 13 July 2021, JKJAV – the Special Committee on COVID-19 Vaccine Supply – announced that the IDCC vaccination centre (PPV) will be closed for the day after two volunteers tested positive for COVID-19.
This would allow for sanitisation of the vaccination centre to be carried out. The IDCC PPV will reopen on 14 July 2021.
The COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) immediately ordered a screening test of all other workers at the IDCC PPV.
The test was carried out on 10 July 2021, and they found that another 204 staff were positive for COVID-19, with RT-PCR CT value of 35 – meaning that they have a low viral load.
That would mean a total of 206 staff members of the IDCC PPV have tested positive for COVID-19, including the initial two cases.
National Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, also shared that there are 453 workers at the IDCC PPV, of which :
88% (400 people) have been vaccinated
12% (53 people) have not been vaccinated
He did not reveal how many of the 206 positive cases were vaccinated. However, at least 153 of the 400 vaccinated workers would have tested positive for COVID-19 – a vaccine breakthrough rate of about 38%.
All other IDCC PPV workers will be quarantined, and replaced with a new team as a precautionary measure.
NIOSH has been ordered to monitor the ventilation in the IDCC PPV to ensure safety of people getting vaccinated going forward.
Malaysia is officially changing the AstraZeneca dose interval, from 12 weeks to just 9 weeks!
Find out how it affects vaccine efficacy!
AstraZeneca Vaccine : 9 Week Dose Interval In Malaysia!
On 30 June 2021, the National Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, said that the government will announce a new dose interval for the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.
“I will be making an announcement on the new dose interval tomorrow (Thursday, 1 July 2021).”
Just before 6 PM on 1 July 2021, he finally made the announcement :
Based on the recommendation from our Technical Working Group & with greater clarity of the delivery schedule, @JKJAVMY has decided to shorten the dosing interval for AZ from 12 to nine weeks. Those who participated in the first round of AZ will be notified of their 2nd appt soon.
This is likely due to the surge of cases caused by the highly-infectious Delta strain of COVID-19, which has been shown to infect people within seconds of close contact.
A single dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine has been shown to offer very limited protection against the Delta variant, so it is critical for people to get their second dose quickly.
We can now confirm that a police permit is NOT required for people travelling to receive their COVID-19 vaccinations!
Here are the details!
Why Need Police Permit For COVID-19 Vaccination???
When the Malaysian government announced the imposition of MCO restrictions on six districts in Selangor, it was announced that interstate and inter-district travel was FORBIDDEN for those districts, except for emergencies and work.
Emergencies, including seeking medical treatment and in cases of death, would require police permission as per the MCO SOP; while work would require a worker’s pass or employer’s letter.
This would mean that those who received their COVID-19 vaccination appointments in other districts, or volunteered to receive the AstraZeneca vaccine would have to request for a police permit, in order to travel to their vaccination centres!
Police Permit NOT Required For COVID-19 Vaccination!
Just show proof of your COVID-19 vaccination appointment at the district boundaries. This can be on MySejahtera, the COVID-19 vaccination website, or the SMS.
For MCO districts, you WILL be allowed to cross district lines for your vaccination appointment. Just show proof of your appointment on MySj, website or sms at district boundaries. You will not require a letter from the police.
The Malaysian government has just announced that the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine will be taken off the mainstream vaccination programme, and made optional.
Here is what we know about this new development, and why it is a great shortcut for those who want to get vaccinated earlier!
AstraZeneca Vaccine : Now Optional
In a press conference on 28 April 2021, National Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister Khairy Jamaluddin, announced that the AstraZeneca vaccine will no longer be part of the mainstream COVID-19 vaccination programme.
