AstraZeneca Round Two Will be Announced next Week Available outside the Klang Valley
In case you have missed the last Sunday’s opt-in booking for AstraZeneca vaccines, here is your second chance to secure your jab. Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Khairy Jamaluddin, has announced that the next AstraZeneca opt-in window will be announced next week and it will be available for residents outside the Klang Valley.
While much attention has been given to the opt-in AZ track under PICK, phase two is well underway with more seniors receiving their appointments. @JKJAVMY will be announcing details for another AZ opt-in window & new PPVAZ locations outside of Klang Valley next week. https://t.co/10ovTyw9GO

With the announcement earlier, a million doses of AstraZeneca vaccine are expected to arrive in Malaysia this month via Covid-19 Vaccines Global Access (COVAX) and it will be offered for opt-in booking in other states where apart from the online website, the opt-in booking will also be made available for people without internet access.
We are scheduled to receive a million more doses this month via COVAX. We will expand the opt-in in other states (except Sarawak which has declined) and ensure those without access to internet etc can also sign up. https://t.co/lcDHxS3qXr

Although Sarawak has declined to participate, Khairy said that the option is still open for Sarawak if they change their mind. The first batch of 268,000 vaccines was fully booked within four hours after the online appointment system went online at 12 pm on Sunday. The current AstraZeneca vaccination program will run from 5th May until 6th June at 4 mass vaccination centers located at World Trade Centre in KL, IDCC in Shah Alam, Universiti Malaya and Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.
