KUALA LUMPUR: One million more doses of AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccination will be opened for opt-in registration in May.
Khairy Jamaluddin, who is the coordinating minister for the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme, said an announcement would be made next week.
''We will receive a million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine within this month.
''We will open the opt-in registration for people in Klang Valley and other states.
''People need not worry and we will make the announcement next week,'' he said after an ad-hoc visit to the World Trade Centre Kuala Lumpur (WTCKL) vaccination centre here on Saturday (May 15).
Khairy also pleaded with those without vaccination appointments not to come to any of the vaccination centres, as it would lead to congestion and compromise physical distancing.
''Many tend to come at the end of the day to try their luck, but this will result in a crowd and it's risky,'' he said.
For those with appointments, Khairy has also told them not to come too early to wait because that, too, would create a crowd.
''Just come about 15 to 30 minutes earlier to avoid crowding the place," he said.
