Confusion over appointments received from two different apps


THE lack of coordination between Selangkah and MySejahtera mobile applications on vaccination appointments has created confusion among people in Selangor.

Puchong MCA New Media Bureau head Soon Mon Huay said it received about 10 complaints from residents receiving vaccination appointments through MySejahtera shortly after obtaining their first dose of Covid-19 vaccine via Selangkah.

“In one of the cases, a man approached us on July 24 and highlighted the matter.

“The man, who wanted to be known only as Sim, and his wife received their first dose on July 23 but a vaccination appointment showed up through MySejahtera the next day.

“They didn’t know what to do next.

“They are worried that by not turning up for the vaccination appointment under MySejahtera, it will affect their second vaccination appointments,” Soon said during a virtual press conference.

He feared this problem might affect foreign workers, who might not be familiar with the two apps, as well.

“They might go for vaccination appointments that show up in both Selangkah and MySejahtera, and this would surely disrupt the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme,” he added.

Soon questioned Selangor government’s rationale for using a different application to secure vaccination appointments for Selangor residents when the Federal Government had already introduced MySejahtera as a centralised system for all those residing in Malaysia.

“The data in both applications do not tally and this will only become an inconvenience to those like Sim.

“There is no need for another app.

“We wonder if the digital certificate issued via Selangkah will be recognised as a vaccine passport in the future,” he added.

Puchong MCA Complaints Bureau head Wong Jung Lik said both Selangkah and MySejahtera must coordinate the vaccination appointments to avoid confusion among the public.

“Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari should look into this matter,” he added.
