THE government should keep improving the MySejahtera app based on public feedback.

Bintulu MP Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing, who made the call in a statement, said bugs in the app must be fixed.

“This includes allowing more flexibility for appointments, ensuring vaccination centre database is fully synchronised and preventing data breaches.

“The government is relying on MySejahtera data to schedule recipients in batches but the app’s shortcomings are causing inconvenience to the people,” he said.

He cited as example some who had registered through the website discovered that it was not reflected in the app.

“Others, who were given appointments far from their place of residence, could not change their vaccination centre after many attempts.”

Tiong said the government must clarify the responsibilities of Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry as well as Health Ministry in the vaccination programme.

“These ministries must examine the flaws in existing procedures and make continuous improvements,” he said.

“This includes the cards given to recipients who have had their second dose.”

Tiong said laminating these cards or giving official certificates of better quality would not cost much.

He reminded recipients to keep their documents safely after receiving their first vaccination dose so they could present them for the second dose. — By ANDY CHUA
