Walk-In Vaccine Booster Dose Details For Senior Citizens!
On 17 January 2022, the Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) announced that they will soon allow senior citizens to walk-in for their COVID-19 vaccine booster dose at vaccination centres (PPVs).
Who Qualifies To Walk-In?
Senior citizens who are 60 years or older, who have completed the primary series COVID-19 vaccinations at least 3 months ago, qualify for the booster dose.
They will be allowed to walk-in for their COVID-19 booster dose vaccination at selected PPVs, if they have not received their appointments, or have already missed them.
Mega PPVs : From 19 January 2022 Onwards
On 15 January 2022, KKM started four mega PPVs to speed up booster dose vaccinations in the Klang Valley :
At that time, they stated that these four mega PPVs would strictly vaccinate only people with MySejahtera appointments, and would not allow walk-ins.
That changes on Wednesday, 19 January 2022 when they start allowing senior citizens to walk-in for their booster dose vaccination.

From Monday, 24 January 2022 onwards, offsite PPVs in these states will start offering walk-in booster dose vaccination for senior citizens :

Unfortunately, KKM did not provide a list of participating offsite PPVs. This will be announced later by the ProtectHealth Corporation.
