Elderly and disabled can walk-in to any public PPV in Melaka for vaccination

MELAKA (Bernama): All public vaccination centres (PPV) in Melaka are allowed to accept "walk-in” among senior citizens and people with disabilities (PwDs) who have not received their vaccination appointment to receive the vaccine, effective Monday (July 26).

State Health and Anti-Drug Committee chairman Datuk Rahmad Mariman said all the PPVs were however, allowed to give the vaccine only to the first 50 individuals who walked-in due to the limited vaccine supply.

"Walk-in is only allowed from 8.30am to 1pm. The senior citizens and the disabled are required to bring along their identity card, smartphone that is registered with MySejahtera and related documents on their illnesses, if any.

"Through this 'walk-in' initiative, we hope to achieve 100% vaccination for senior citizens and the disabled in the state,” he said in a statement here.

For senior citizens and the disabled who have already received their appointment date and the PPV location, Rahmad said they should go for the vaccination on the date given at the designated PPV. - Bernama
