No more walk-ins at off-site PPV, booster shots by appointment only

PETALING JAYA: Walk-ins at off-site Covid-19 vaccination centres (PPV) for booster shots will no longer be allowed, says ProtectHealth Corporation, the government-appointed implementer of private medical practitioner participation in the immunisation programme.

This came following reports of long queues and crowding at various PPV in the Klang Valley by members of the public wishing to get their third jab of the Covid-19 vaccine.

ProtectHealth chief executive officer Datuk Dr Anas Alam Faizli said only those with appointments in MySejahtera should turn up at the PPV for their booster shot.

"Walk-ins to off-site PPV are not allowed. It is by appointment only. Everyone will get their appointment by age de-escalation," said Anas when contacted on Tuesday (Jan 4).

However, those who are eligible or urgently seeking booster shots but have not received a MySejahtera appointment may also register on the waitlist at the PPV of their choice.

First, visit ProtectHealth’s website at and select Find Vaccination Centre (PPV)

Then, search for your preferred PPV registered under ProtectHealth.

Call or email your preferred or nearest PPV for registration.

Individuals are also advised to register at only one PPV in a private health facility to avoid double booking.

Those who have successfully registered will be on a waitlist after registration and contacted by the PPV in the event of an appointment cancellation or no-shows by others who have appointments via MySejahtera.
