Walk-in vaccinations in the Klang Valley to start on Aug 2


PETALING JAYA: Walk-in vaccinations in the Klang Valley will begin on Aug 2 and will cater to those above 40 and people with co-morbidities first, says Khairy Jamaluddin.

The National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (NIP) coordinating minister said the walk-in vaccinations will now start on Aug 2 instead of Aug 1.

He said that walk-in vaccinations will start to open to those above the age of 18 on Aug 5.

“To avoid any fake news, not all vaccination centres (PPVs) will receive walk-ins," said Khairy at a press conference on Saturday (July 31).

He added that the list of vaccination centres open for walk-ins will be issued by the Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) on Saturday.

He added that the walk-in vaccinations will be on a “first-come-first-serve” basis that will depend on the PPV’s capacity.

“We will inform the public of the capacity of the PPV on any given day. Those who did not receive the vaccine on that day, will be prioritized on the next day,” he said.

Khairy also said the walk-in vaccinations will cater to those who have not received an appointment yet, those who previously cancelled their vaccination appointment and those who have not registered, among others.

“We are confident that by tomorrow, 99% of adults in the Klang Valley will receive their appointments,” he said, adding that the walk-in vaccinations will be to “mop-up” those who are the outliers.
