MySejahtera has begun to provide the appointment dates for the second dosage of the AstraZeneca (AZ) vaccine. The appointment dates come just hours after the coordinating minister for the National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme (PICK), Khairy Jamaluddin announced that the interval time for the vaccine has been shortened to 9 weeks.
Not only that, Malaysia has also just received 1 million doses of the vaccine from the Japanese government yesterday, together with more than half a million doses from the Siam Bioscience factory in Thailand. However, many have received the appointment date without any notification on their phones.
Thank you to the government & people of Japan for the contribution of one million doses of the AZ vaccine. Testament to our strong bilateral ties. Malaysia will also receive 586,700 doses of our direct AZ purchase tonight from the AZ facility in Thailand. pic.twitter.com/JRQpcfiUju

This is something which happened to all three Lowyat.NET editorial team members that have received their first AZ dose. Additionally, our quick check also showed that the second dose appointment has yet to be displayed on the national COVID-19 vaccine’s website as well.
Hence, it is quite possible for a lot of people to miss the existence of their second dose appointment dates in MySejahtera. That being said, anyone that has yet to receive or completed their COVID-19 vaccination should make it a habit to periodically check that particular section of the app anyway.
This is so that you would not miss any important details, especially when vaccination details suddenly appear in the app. Also, don’t forget to confirm the appointment once it appears in MySejahtera.
