Contact nearest health facility to get new booster shot appointment

Date:

KUCHING: The state Health Department has advised those who missed their booster dose appointment to contact public vaccination centres (PPVs), designated private clinics, or any nearest health clinics to get a new appointment date.

“New appointment dates will be given according to the available slot vacancies as early as the day recipients contact the relevant PPVs.

“Nonetheless, the public are urged to always check the appointment date on their MySejahtera app or contact (during office hours) any vaccination centre listed to get their appointment.

“This in return, will make it easier to coordinate controlled walk-ins,” said the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) in its daily update on Wednesday (Nov 24) as a way to address the issue where the appointment date for the booster dose was received late through MySejahtera and caused recipients to miss their appointment dates.

On similar matters, as of Nov 23, 570,616 people had received the vaccine booster doses.

“Those given priority for the booster dose currently are individuals 40 years of age and older, front-line workers and chronically ill (comorbid) adults aged 18 to 59 years.

“The third dose is also for those who have a weak immune system due to disease or immunocompromised.

“Hence, those who are eligible to receive the booster dose will get an appointment date through their MySejahtera app to attend any of the designated health facilities.”
