Hi, I successfully registered for the AZ vaccine yesterday and am due to get the first shot this Friday. However, I have been flagged as a casual contact by the MySejahtera app today (most likely from going to the mall yesterday). Can I still take/be eligible for the vaccine?

Hello, and thank you for contacting us

We truly understand your concern with regard to your current condition.

Occasionally different vaccination centres might have slightly different SOP according to the situation of their current pandemic surrounding. Therefore, I advise you to directly contact your local Vaccine Administration Centre (VAC) in the near future for more specific procedure.

For the time being, I would also encourage you to answer this quiz on Risk Assessment for COVID-19 to evaluate their health status in regards to this disease. After completing this quiz, you will be classified into several categories. Further instructions will be given at the end of the quiz. Please act accordingly.

As a precautionary measure, you may also click on this link to directly request a COVID-19 screening test for your self, close freinds or family members, if you suspect any symptoms associated to COVID-19. You may contact the Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre (CPRC) for further information. Other than that, continue practicing good hand hygiene, wearing face mask and normalizing social/physical distancing.
