PROTECTHEALTH Corporation Sdn. Bhd (ProtectHealth), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Ministry of Health (MOH), has announced steps to be taken to facilitate walk-in registration at private health facility Private Practice Vaccination (PPV) centres for those who have missed their appointment and those who have not received a vaccination appointment.
According to the statement, registration of individuals at PPV private health facilities can be done via telephone and/or email.
“The PPV list will be updated from time to time,” said the statement.
Those who have successfully registered will be on a waitlist and will be contacted by the private health facility PPV in the event of an appointment cancellation or no-show for those who have vaccine appointments via MySejahtera.
The statement added that those who have already received MySejahtera appointments should proceed to the designated PPV to be vaccinated and should not put themselves on any waitlist.
“The walk-in, email or telephone registration is applicable for individuals eligible for a booster dose who have not received an appointment; adults aged 40 years and above; adults aged 18 years and above with co-morbidities; long-term care facility individuals (staff and residents); pregnant mothers; those travelling abroad; and those who have missed their vaccination appointments.”
It was also stated that the walk-in, email, or telephone registration is applicable to individuals who have not yet received the first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccination, as well as individuals who have missed their vaccination appointments.
“Registration for the waitlist at PPV private health facilities under ProtectHealth is free and only the Comirnaty vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech) is provided at listed PPVs as of now. This approach will facilitate and encourage eligible individuals to receive doses earlier without having to wait longer, “ it concluded.
