FrEQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is the opening hours for vaccination at MCMC?

We run vaccination program from 8.30am to 2pm, Monday to Friday based on vaccination list given to us by MySejahtera.

What must I bring along?

Pen, Identification card, vaccine card, MySejahtera (phone)

Can I walk-in to receive a booster vaccine?

No, because 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 facility
3. there is enough vaccine for the day.

Besides that we need to follow SOP. Imagine how you would feel crowding together with 100, 000 other Miri people at MCMC because all of them wanted to "walk-in" and vaccinate. Surely you do not want to be in that dangerous situation.

Be patient and we will send a Whatsapp message to you for an appointment.

If I repeat my Google Form Application multiple times, will I get an earlier appointment?

Please do not waste your time because we give appointment based on your first application and in chronological order throughout the standby list.

Can I change the vaccination centre allocated by MySejahtera 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 computer server. We are waiting for MySejahtera to upgrade it's system to allow us to vaccinate anyone from other health centre as well.

We are not part of MySejahtera and do not give appointment through it. We only contact "standby" vaccinees whenever we have excess vaccine from people who did not turn up for MySejahtera vaccination appointment.

How does MCMC select vaccinees?

We have 2 vaccination lists. The first list is an official list given by MySejahtera with vaccines allocated for them.

Those listed under MySejahtera for vaccination at MCMC will be given priority.

Daily we are given 200 official names by MySejahtera and we are given 200 doses meant for the listed vaccinees. Any leftover vaccines will be brought over to the next day for “standby” list. If all 200 vaccinees comes for vaccination, then 0 vaccine will be brought forward for “standby” list.
