S'gor govt urged to iron out technical issues with Selangkah


PETALING JAYA: Covid-19 vaccine recipients under Selvax want to know when they will get their digital certificate on their MySejahtera app.

Beneficiaries of the Selangor initiative were worried that the state-owned Selangkah app – which registers their vaccination status – was not recognised.

Puchong MCA public affairs bureau chief Wong Jung Lik said he received many such complaints from concerned folk.

“They are worried that when restrictions are relaxed, they will not be able to provide proof that they have been vaccinated,” he said during a virtual press briefing on Friday (Aug 13).

Wong said some Selvax recipients had also received a vaccination appointment date under MySejahtera.

He added that some considered turning up for the new appointment just so they could get the digital certificate.

“We advised them against doing so out of concern for possible adverse effects of receiving more doses than prescribed,” said Wong.

Under Selvax, Selangor targeted to administer 2.5 million doses of vaccines to residents in the state by October.

Out of this figure, it allocated 500,000 doses for the public and the rest for industrial workers, for which companies had to pay RM350 for two doses.

Selangor-owned Selgate Healthcare chief executive officer Dr Muaz Omar gave assurances that vaccination details in Selangkah would appear in MySejahtera.

He, however, said there was no set timeline for how soon this information would be reflected in MySejahtera.

“All data that we submit to MySejahtera must be verified and be in the correct format before it is uploaded,” he said when contacted.

Puchong MCA publicity bureau chief Soon Mon Huay urged Selangor to iron out the technical issues to avoid confusion among the public.

“The lack of a digital certificate for those who have completed their vaccination under Selvax is causing uncertainty,” he said.
