Interstate Travel Allowed For COVID-19 Vaccination!

On 14 April 2021, the Malaysia National Security Council agreed to allow interstate travel for the purpose of helping family members make it to their COVID-19 vaccination appointments.

On 15 April 2021, National Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister Khairy Jamaluddin announced this decision, which will take effect immediately.

  • Only one person is allowed to travel interstate to help family members make it to their COVID-19 vaccination appointments.
  • For example, someone working in KL can return to Negeri Sembilan to take his elderly mother for her vaccination.
  • That person will only need to show the vaccination appointment letter at state borders

Interstate Travel To Spur COVID-19 Vaccination?

This new interstate travel leniency appears to be an attempt to spur COVID-19 vaccination.

However, it is unknown how many senior citizens or dependents are unable to make it for their COVID-19 vaccinations, because their children are outstation.

There is also the issue of abuse of this leniency. Restricting it to a single person helps, but cannot prevent people from travelling in separate cars using the same vaccination appointment letter as an excuse.

There is, after all, no central database for the police to verify that only one person is using that vaccination appointment letter to travel interstate.

A better alternative might be for the Health Ministry to setup mobile vaccination teams to target senior citizens or other people who are unable to travel to vaccination centres.
