KUALA LUMPUR, June 21 – In conjunction with the National Immunization Week 2022 on June 16, 2022 themed “Lifelong Protection for All”, the COVID-19 National Immunization Program for children aged 5 to 11 years will be open for 5 days from June 20 to June 24, 2022.
The opening of this vaccination is to celebrate the parents who now wish to get the COVID-19 vaccine for children who missed the opportunity before and the MOH’s concern for the safety of children from vaccine-preventable diseases. Parents who wish to get this vaccination can get the vaccination without an appointment at health clinics under the MOH for a specified period.
Parents can bring their children to the MOH health clinic from 20 to 24 June 2022. The distribution is based on the stock of vaccines at a facility on that day and if the stock for that day runs out, the parents have to bring the child the next day.
Parents who are new to the COVID-19 vaccination or have just decided to allow their child to be vaccinated are encouraged to take this opportunity. For children who will reach the age of 5, parents can still book a vaccination appointment according to the date and place of vaccination of choice through the MySejahtera application.
