I would like to thank JKJAV for providing the pictures and information for this pictorial guide.

Dropping Off + Parking!

If you need to drop off any dependents, or if you are taking a taxi / e-hailing ride, please head to Gate E.

If yon need to drop off any persons with disability (OKU), please head for the OKU Parking Zone, where a buggy service is available.

Free parking is available at :

  • Car Park B (for HCO A and C)
  • Car Park C (for HCO B and C)

If you are arriving by LRT, please enter through Gate A.

Where To Go?

Before you head to Bukit Jalil Stadium PPV, check your vaccine appointment in MySejahtera for your assigned HCO entrance.

Once you arrive at the Bukit Jalil Stadium PPV, look for the HCO signboards, and enter through your assigned HCO entrance.

At the first station, you will need to scan your MySejahtera to check-in, and check your body temperature. You will not be allowed in, if you are running a fever.

Then follow the signs and roped pathways to enter the stadium, where you will be seated in a waiting area.

Bukit Jalil Stadium is partially covered and is not air-conditioned in most parts. So make sure you bring an umbrella and a bottle of water.

Once it’s your turn, you will be asked to enter into the Registration Tent, where you will receive your consent forms and seated in a waiting area.

This is when you can fill in your consent forms. Just don’t sign them yet.

At the registration counter in Station 2, a volunteer will check your identification (MyKad or Passport) and register you.

If you have MySejahtera, you will be asked to scan the QR code to log that you have officially come in to be vaccinated.

Then you will head to Station 3, where a doctor will brief you on the COVID-19 vaccine, and you can ask your questions. This is also where you will sign the consent forms.

You will then move to the Vaccination Tent, where you will receive your COVID-19 vaccine.

The doctor / nurse administering the vaccine will show you the vial or vaccine label, so you know what vaccine you are receiving.

The doctor / nurse will also show you the syringe to confirm that it has the right amount of vaccine.

The empty syringe will also be shown to you after you receive your vaccination.

After vaccination, you will be asked to wait in a small holding area for 30 minutes. Then you will be called to the counter to submit your consent forms and receive your vaccination card.

If you are worried about any severe allergic reaction to the vaccine, you can sit a little while longer.

After that, you can leave the Bukit Jalil Stadium vaccination centre, and go home!

Don’t forget to take some pictures, and share with your friends and family on social media!

 

After Leaving Bukit Jalil PPV : Post-Vaccination Check List

After receiving your COVID-19 vaccination, you are FREE to do anything you want. There are NO RESTRICTIONS on your diet and daily life.

You can expect some mild side effects – these are signs of your immune system learning how to fight against COVID-19.

You can report any side effects you feel over the next few days in MySejahtera. If they persist, or get severe, please seek medical attention at the nearest government hospital.

MITEC Vaccination Centre : A Pictorial Guide!

I would like to thank Zoey Lee and her sister for providing the pictures and information for this pictorial guide.

Dropping Off + Parking!

As per the video guide above, if you need to drop off your vaccine dependents, please do so at the South entrance of MITEC.

If you are taking a taxi or e-hailing ride, make sure they drop you off at the South entrance of MITEC.

If you need to park your car, public parking is available near the MITEC South entrance – turn left into the MITEC basement car park.

Where To Go?

Whether you get dropped off, or park in the basement, make sure you head to the South entrance of MITEC.

You will need to check in using MySejahtera and scan your forehead temperature, as usual.

You will need to follow the guided path of Hall 03 (Dewan 03).

Try not to go too early. If you are early, you will be asked to wait in a waiting area until your time slot is called.

Fortunately, this waiting area is fully air-conditioned, unlike WTCKL.

MITEC Hall 3 has two entrances – one for those taking the 1st Dose, and one for those taking the 2nd Dose.

There will be volunteers ushering you, but make sure you enter the right entrance.

On entering MITEC Hall 3, you will be given a queue number, and your vaccination consent forms.

Then you will be seated in a large waiting area, where you can then fill in the consent forms. Do NOT sign the consent forms yet.

Because there are no tables, you should bring something stiff to write on (like a book), and a pen.

When your queue number is called, note the Counter number and head to the Registration and Consent area.

Go to your assigned Counter, where a volunteer will check your identification (MyKad or Passport) and register you.

If you have MySejahtera, you will be asked to scan the QR code to log that you have officially come in to be vaccinated.

There will also be a doctor at the same counter to explain the risks and benefits of COVID-19 vaccination.

You will have the opportunity to ask the doctor any questions about the vaccination, and your medication. If you brought your medication, you may present it to the doctor.

After your queries are satisfied, you may then sign the consent forms, and the doctor will counter sign them.

After signing the consent forms, you will be assigned Station A or Station B by the volunteer.

Head to the Vaccination area, according to the assigned Station.

You will be seated in the waiting area to wait for your turn.

When your queue number is called, head to the assigned vaccination room, to receive your COVID-19 vaccine.

The doctor / nurse administering the vaccine will show you the vial or vaccine label, so you know what vaccine you are receiving.

The doctor / nurse will also show you the syringe to confirm that it has the right amount of vaccine.

The empty syringe will also be shown to you after you receive your vaccination.

COVID-19 Vaccine Dependents Can Go By Themselves!

Did you know that COVID-19 vaccine dependents go for their vaccinations by themselves?

You do not need to accompany them for their vaccinations, but there are some things they should be aware about…

 

COVID-19 Vaccine Dependents : What Are They?

A COVID-19 vaccine dependent is usually someone who does not have a phone, or a MySejahtera account.

To register them for COVID-19 vaccination, you can sign them up as a Vaccine Dependent in MySejahtera.

You can sign up your domestic helper, elderly parents or even children (18 years and above) as a vaccine dependent.

You can also sign them up as a vaccine dependent even if they already have a MySejahtera account.

Recommended : How To Register Dependents For Vaccine In MySejahtera!

 

COVID-19 Vaccine Dependents Can Go By Themselves!

In most cases, vaccine dependents are people staying in the same household, so there’s usually no problem in sending them to the vaccination centre when it’s their turn.

However, there are many cases where the vaccine dependent is far away – in a different district or even state.

For example, you can help your elderly parents sign up for their COVID-19 vaccination as a vaccine dependent, even though they are staying in a different state.

The government allows people to travel interstate to help their vaccine dependents get to their vaccination centres. However, that is not always possible.

Vaccine Dependents Can Go By Themselves

Usually, you need to accompany your vaccine dependent to scan the QR codes during their COVID-19 vaccination process.

But if that’s not possible – your vaccine dependents can go for their vaccinations without you!

If they have their own MySejahtera account, their vaccination appointments will be visible, and they can scan the QR codes using their MySejahtera account.

You can maintain them as a vaccine dependent, or remove them – it won’t change their status or appointment, which are tied to their MyKad or passport number.

Vaccine Dependents Don’t Even Need MySejahtera!

In some cases, your vaccine dependents may not have a MySejahtera account, or a smartphone.

Don’t worry – they only need to bring their MyKad or passport to the vaccination centre to authenticate their identity.

Instead of using MySejahtera to scan the QR codes, their COVID-19 vaccinations will be processed manually.

If you maintain them as a vaccine dependent, it will be updated with their COVID-19 vaccination details.

If and when they register for their own MySejahtera account, everything will be shown in their account.

 

Check List For Your Vaccine Dependents

Before your vaccine dependents go for their vaccinations, please remind them that :

  1. They must CONTINUE to take their medications, unless advised otherwise by their doctors.
  2. They should NOT take painkillers BEFORE going for their vaccination.

And here is a check list of what they should do / bring on the day of their COVID-19 vaccination :

  1. They should wear loose and comfortable clothes.
  2. They should have a good meal, and drink some water.
  3. They should check to make sure they do not have a fever, or any other flu-like symptoms.
    If they are sick, they should NOT go to the vaccination centre.
  4. They should bring a smartphone with MySejahtera installed, if possible (not compulsory)
  5. They must bring some form of identification – MyKad or passport.
  6. They should bring their medication with them, in case they need to ask the doctor’s advice at the vaccination centre.
  7. They must wear a face mask, and if possible, wear a face shield.
  8. They should bring a bottle of water, in case they get thirsty.
  9. They should bring a pen, and something stiff to write on, to fill in the forms.

LDV Syringe : How To Read The Volume Correctly?

Most COVID-19 vaccination programmes use LDV syringes to reduce vaccine wastage, but people are misreading them.

Find out why LDV syringes are being used, and how to read them properly!

 

LDV Syringe : What Is It?

Low dead volume (LDV) or low dead space (LDS) syringes and needles are specially designed to reduce wastage.

Most COVID-19 vaccination programmes are using these LDV / LDS syringes and needles to minimise vaccine wastage in each shot.

A normal syringe, for example, will have about 0.1 ml of fluid left after a full injection. A LDV syringe / needle can reduce that to just 0.003 ml!

These special syringes and needles allow a skilled healthcare worker to extract an extra dose or two from each vial of COVID-19 vaccine.

 

LDV Syringe : How To Read The Volume Correctly?

There have been a few cases where vaccine recipients have been given less than the recommended dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

In other cases, it is likely that the vaccine recipients misread the volume of LDV syringes, which are different from regular syringes.

To avoid such misunderstandings, healthcare workers are now asked to show the vaccine recipient the pre-filled syringes before vaccination, and the empty syringe after vaccination.

However, vaccine recipients must first understand how much COVID-19 vaccine should be in the syringe, and how to read the volume correctly!

How Much Volume For Each Vaccine Shot?

Different vaccines have different recommended volumes. Most vaccines are titrated with a recommended dose volume of 0.5 ml, but not Pfizer.

Vaccines Dose Volume
Pfizer COMIRNATY 0.3 ml
AstraZeneca Vaxzevria 0.5 ml
Sinovac CoronaVac 0.5 ml

How To Read LDV Syringes

Low dead volume needles are used with regular syringes, and are read normally. So they are not a problem.

LDV syringes though, have a special long rubber plunger – the black part. Most people misread it by looking at the tip of this long plunger.

It should be read from the first ring of the LDV plunger, as the picture below shows.

If you are not aware of this, you would probably think the LDV syringe contained only 0.35 ml of vaccine. In reality, it contains 0.5 ml of the vaccine.

Don’t forget to also check the vial, to verify you are getting the right COVID-19 vaccine – to avoid potential mix-ups in vaccination centres that offer different COVID-19 vaccines.

ICU Crisis : Klang Valley ICUs Now At 113% Capacity!

We have an ICU crisis in Malaysia – ICUs in the Klang Valley are now at 113% capacity!

Find out what’s going on, and what we can do to prevent this ICU crisis from escalating!

 

ICU Crisis : Klang Valley ICUs Now At 113% Capacity!

The Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) has warned us about this for some time now, and the day has arrived when our ICUs are all full.

On 22 May 2021, the Director General of Health, Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah announced that ICU usage in the Klang Valley has reached 113%!

The worst affected hospitals are Kajang Hospital and Banting Hospital, with 317% and 200% ICU occupancy!

Just take a look at these shocking statistics!

Hospitals Total ICU
Bed Capacity
COVID-19
ICU Beds
COVID-19
Patients
COVID-19 ICU
Bed Usage
Sungai Buloh 80 80 89 111%
Selayang 51 33 24 73%
Ampang 23 15 17 113%
Tuanku
Ampuan
Rahimah
51 41 48 117%
Serdang 52 32 55 172%
Shah Alam 18 12 11 92%
Banting 10 4 8 200%
Kajang 8 6 19 317%
Kuala Lumpur 72 64 63 98%
Putrajaya 20 8 7 88%
PPUM 55 32 30 94%
Tuanku Mizan
Military Hospital
12 7 6 86%
TOTAL 452 334 377 113%

 

ICU Crisis : How Did KKM Expand ICUs Beyond 100%?

You may be wondering how KKM managed to expand hospital ICUs beyond 100%.

Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah announced on 19 May 2021 that they were able to increase the number of ICU beds for COVID-19 patients by repurposing normal wards.

They basically turned normal wards into temporary ICUs by adding ICU equipment to the beds already there. However, ICUs are more than just beds with equipment.

They need to be manned 24 hours a day, with medical staff monitoring patients under their care in three shifts.

So, this is not an ideal situation, but it allows the Health Ministry to avoid turning away patients with severe COVID-19… for now.

Here are pictures of the ICUs in HTAR (Tuanku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital), filled with critical COVID-19 patients.

 

How To Prevent Escalation Of This ICU Crisis?

We need to help KKM prevent a further escalation of this ICU crisis by STRICTLY enforcing COVID-19 precautions.

  1. Staying home and restricting travel to only what’s essential.
  2. Wear a face mask, preferably N95 or at least a surgical mask, when out in public.
  3. Maintain physical distance of 1-2 metres from strangers.
  4. Maintain good hand hygiene at all times.

Why This Man Received A FAKE COVID-19 Vaccination!

The viral video of a man receiving a FAKE COVID-19 vaccination is actually REAL!

Take a look at the viral video, and a video of what subsequently happened after the fake COVID-19 vaccination, and find out WHY he was given the fake shot!

 

This Man Received A Fake COVID-19 Vaccination!

After we debunked the fake COVID-19 vaccine injection in Malaysia, we were asked to investigate the viral video of a man in a red Levi’s t-shirt getting a fake COVID-19 vaccination.

After investigating the video, we can confirm that the man did indeed receive a fake COVID-19 vaccination.

In the video, the doctor / nurse can be seen inserting the needle into his shoulder, and then removing it without pushing the plunger in.

If you look closely at the black plunger head, you can see that it never moves in the video.

 

Why This Man Received A FAKE COVID-19 Vaccination!

So why did this man receive a fake COVID-19 vaccination? Was this doctor or nurse an antivaxxer?

Or is this part of a government plan to give people a false sense of hope after running out of COVID-19 vaccines?

Here is what we know so far…

Fact #1 : This Happened In Ecuador

For the record, this video was not recorded in India or Malaysia, or heck – anywhere in Asia.

It was recorded at the Mucho Lote Vaccination Centre in Guayaquil, Ecuador on Sunday, 25 April 2021.

Fact #2 : The Man Was NOT Supposed To Be Vaccinated

From what we can gather, this 54 year-old man was not supposed to be vaccinated.

He allegedly bribed the nurse to cut the queue, essentially getting his COVID-19 vaccination ahead of his turn.

However, the nurse gave him a fake injection instead, literally poking a needle in his shoulder without actually injecting anything.

This is likely because vaccine doses are extremely limited, and would be under close supervision. A missing dose would have been noticed.

Fact #3 : They Were Caught + Arrested

According to Primicias, they were both caught, and the man was escorted out of the vaccination centre. The nurse, however, was arrested on the spot.

The Ecuador Minister of Health, Dr. Camilo Salinas Ochoa confirmed the case, stating that they identified “the nurse and the patient”.

The Ecuador Secretary General of the Presidency, Jorge Wated Reshuan confirmed that the nurse was arrested.

The man who recorded the video of himself receiving the fake vaccination was also arrested.

Fake COVID-19 Vaccine Injection In Malaysia Debunked!

A video of a lady receiving a fake COVID-19 vaccine injection in Malaysia went viral on social media yesterday.

Take a look at the FULL VIDEO, and find out why this is yet another fake story on social media!

 

Fake COVID-19 Vaccine Injection? What’s Going On?

There have been stories and even videos of fake COVID-19 vaccinations, purportedly by healthcare workers who are anti-vaccination.

Yesterday, a short video of about 24 seconds went viral on social media, especially WhatsApp.

It showed a nurse failing to give an elderly lady her COVID-19 vaccine injection, by removing the syringe without pushing the plunger in!

On closer examination, you can see that the syringe actually detached from the needle, which the nurse then removed.

The video is sometimes accompanied by an audio message, of a man who claimed that he is a friend of the man heard on the video.

He claimed that his friend’s mother did not receive her COVID-19 vaccine injection, and warned that there have been many cases of fake vaccinations like this.

 

Fake COVID-19 Vaccine Injection In Malaysia Debunked!

It was obvious from the video that the syringe detached from the needle, and therefore the shot was wasted.

It would have been obvious to everyone there, and the nurse would have to redo the vaccination.

However, this case would have been impossible to debunk, if we did not have the full video which we fortunately we able to obtain today.

The original viral video only showed the first vaccination attempt. The full video showed that a different nurse then attempted the vaccination again.

In these screenshots of the video above, you can see that the nurse inserted a new syringe and needle, checked for blood before pushing the plunger in completely (note the position of the black plunger head).

So this is definitive proof that there was no fake injection of the COVID-19 vaccine, at least not in this case.

The first vaccination attempt failed, but there was a second vaccination attempt which succeeded. She received her COVID-19 vaccination.

The original shorter video and the accompanying audio message are FAKE NEWS.
