Can I walk-in to receive a booster vaccine?
We have "walk-in" vaccination for PFIZER only.
However, we need to make sure that you meet the necessary requirements such as:
1. minimum duration between your 2nd dose vaccine and the booster dose
2. your name is not locked into another vaccination centre (we can still vaccinate you but MySejahtera E-cert will be delayed 2-4weeks).
Can I change MySejahtera vaccination centre to MCMC?
No because at the moment, MySejahtera does not give us direct authority to register you into our system. Any attempt by us to register you will be blocked automatically by MySejahtera system.
However, we can still vaccinate you but the MySejahtera E-cert will be delayed for 2-4 weeks.
Can I vaccinate at MCMC if I reschedule or cancel the appointment in MySejahtera?
If your name is still locked into the previous vaccination centre, we can still vaccinate you but MySejahtera E-cert will be delayed 2-4week.
I have registered with MCMC as a SINOVAC standby vaccinee. When will I get my appointment?
We only contact "standby" vaccinees whenever we have excess vaccine from people who did not turn up for MySejahtera vaccination appointment.
