List of walk-in PPVs for teens to be announced on Tuesday (Sept 21), says KJ

PUTRAJAYA: Teenagers aged 12 to 17 will be able to walk in for their Covid-19 vaccination at selected PPVs (Covid-19 vaccination centres), says Khairy Jamaluddin.

The Health Minister said the ministry will be announcing the list of selected PPVs on Tuesday (Sept 21).

“Tomorrow, we will be announcing a list of PPVs in states where teenagers can walk in and receive their vaccination.

“This will be at PPVs that are currently still in operation.

“So right now, teenagers have two ways to get vaccinated. Either they wait to receive their appointments from school PPVs, or they can walk in at these selected PPVs,” said Khairy at a press conference after observing the vaccination process for teenagers at SMK Putrajaya Precinct 8(1) here on Monday (Sept 20).

Khairy said for the walk-in process for teens, parents or guardians must accompany their children.

“The parent or guardian of the teenager will be required to fill up the consent form at the PPV, and they need to sign it in the presence of a doctor,” said Khairy.

Khairy also advised teenagers not to undergo any physical activity for a week after vaccination.

The minister said the government is targeting at least 60% of teens to receive at least one vaccination dose by November, and at least 80% by January next year.
