2nd round for AstraZeneca to open from May 23, priority to senior citizens:
Great news for those who missed the first round of AstraZeneca booking as the 2nd booking will be available this coming Sunday on the 23rd May which is available to more states outside of the Klang Valley. However, it is now limited to senior citizens only. According to the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Khairy Jamaluddin, the next AstraZeneca opt-in will be offered to people aged 60 years old and above.
This will be available for residents in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Sarawak and Johor. Apart from online website booking, there are also available for booking through community clinic outreach and also will be extended to elderly care homes too.
“If there are still vacancies for the slots after May 26, we will open the slots for the public aged below 60.” There are currently some 25,000 people in the AstraZeneca opt-in programme’s waiting list, Khairy said.
Those who have registered under the waiting list for the first round will get their AstraZeneca appointments on the next round which was reported that about 60,000 individuals have registered under the waiting list. The first batch of over 268.000 doses was fully booked in less than 4 hours after it was offered online booking on 2nd May earlier.
The world Trade Centre KL is currently doing over 8,000 vaccination in a day and Khairy also mentioned that Bukit Jalil Stadium will soon be the largest vaccination centre in the country which will be able to provide 10,000 jabs per day.
AstraZeneca required two doses and Malaysia is adopting a longer 12-week interval between the first and second jab. In order to book the AstraZeneca vaccines, you must be registered under the National COVID-19 immunisation program.
