If you’re a student who is going to study abroad, there’s now an easier way to apply for early COVID-19 vaccination. Previously, you would need to drop a request by email to permohonan [@] vaksincovid.gov.my but now you can do so via the MySejahtera Helpdesk.

To submit a request for early vaccination, just launch the MySejahtera app (Google Play Store, Apple App Store and Huawei AppGallery) and go to the home screen. Next, tap on “Helpdesk”, select (A) “Vaccination Appointment” then (A) “I am a student and need to travel to study abroad”.
You will need to submit your MySejahtera User ID (usually your mobile number), your IC/passport and attach supporting documents from your University. If you’ve previously submitted a request by email, you are not required to resubmit again via Helpdesk.
