234 Covid Vaccination Centres Nationwide: How To Find A PPV Near You

Due to the rising number of Covid-19 cases, newly minted Health Minister, Datuk Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad has made a statement that Malaysia still has 234 vaccine centres running nationwide. These facilities are provided so that the public can go out and get their vaccines and boosters.

The statement follows reports from news sources that claim booster vaccinations are not readily available at government clinics.

In the statement, Dr Dzulkefly said that the ministry will update the list of vaccine centres (PPV – Pusat Pemberian Vaksin) periodically. This is to inform Malaysians should there be any increase or decrease to the number of vaccine centres.

Dr Dzul also stated that Malaysians can get their Covid-19 vaccinations by simply walking in at any vaccine centres, or making an appointment through the MySejahtera app.

Through the statement, the Health Ministry also reiterated that the Covid-19 vaccination programme remains on a voluntary basis for the time being.

High risk individuals should consider a booster vaccination

“MoH would like to reiterate that the Covid-19 vaccination programme is for the time being voluntary. However, we highly recommend people from the high risk groups to get vaccinated, such as the elderly and those with comorbidities,” said Dr Dzulkefly.

Earlier this week, it has been reported that Health director-general Datuk Dr Muhammad Radzi Abu Hassan said that people who are seeking Covid-19 vaccinations or booster shots can just walk in to any government hospital or clinics.

However, checks made by New Straits Times revealed that not every government clinics in the Klang Valley were ready to accept patients seeking their Covid-19 vaccination.
