The Health Ministry’s social media and communications consultant Aysha Ridzuan tweeted on Tuesday (Jan 18) that parents can add their children as vaccine dependents on the MySejahtera app.

“Covid vaccination for 5-11 years old will begin soon.

“If your children are your dependents on MySejahtera, you can add them as vaccine dependent to register for the vaccine. More details will be announced later. #PICKids,” she tweeted.
