PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has announced that Community Internet Centres (PIK) nationwide will be mobilised as help centres for Covid-19 vaccine registration.

Members of the public facing difficulties with Covid-19 vaccine registration can get help from staff members at the nearest PIK to register their interest using the MySejahtera mobile application. It also urges those who have yet to register to make use of the computer facilities at PIK to sign up.

MCMC in a statement said it hopes the initiative will boost public awareness on the importance of the vaccination process in order to help the government combat the Covid-19 pandemic.

A listing for PIK centres nationwide is available on the website MyComms website.

Members of the public need to register as a user, then click Pusat Internet on the main page. A map will be displayed, after which users can select a state to find the nearest PIK according to district.
