It explained that respective PPVs are allowed to accept walk-in based on ground conditions. It is not encouraged to walk in physically as waitlist as you might end up disappointed if there is no extra vaccine. Therefore the public is encouraged to register on the waitlist by contacting the preferred clinics or off-site PPVs as listed by ProtectHealth.

As announced by the Ministry of Health, Malaysia has reduced the COVID-19 vaccine booster shot interval from 6 to 3 months for most vaccine types. The 3-month interval for boosters is applicable to adults (18 years old and above) who were fully vaccinated with Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Sinovac, Moderna, Sinopharm and CanSino Bio.
By default, there’s no need to register for the booster shot and appointments will be pushed out automatically via MySejahtera. With the recent announcement, most adults who were fully vaccinated before September 2021, would be due for a booster shot. The MySejahtera appointments are sent out with priority given to senior citizens as well as individuals with comorbidities.
