UKM Bangi Vaccination Experience By Sharmine Ishak!

Sharmine generously shared with us his experience with the whole AstraZeneca vaccination process.

In fact, it is a step-by-step guide on what happened at the UKM Bangi AstraZeneca vaccination centre!


1. Arrived at the PPV (vaccination centre) and was given two copies of the consent form. It’s double sided with one side English and the other in Malay.

2. Double checking on my timing (9am) they moved me to a seating area to fill the form.

Note: The form has a portion below for the signature. You can put your name, IC, and date. But leave the signature bit for later, as it needs to be signed in the presence of a witness (a doctor).


3. Once the queue was ready for me, I joined it and was shuffled into the hall. At the first checkpoint, they’ll check:

– My Sejahtera check-in
– Temperature
– My I/C — which will be required throughout

Foreigners/expats, please bring your passport.


4. At the second checkpoint, they verified my vaccination appointment: date and time, as well as some general COVID safety questions – if you’ve been out of the country, had contracted COVID, had been in close contact, etc.


5. After I was cleared, I entered the hall and was put in line for the doctor to review my consent form. They will also request you scan the QR, as directed in your MySejahtera app.

This is where you sign the form with the doctor as a witness. I had pre-signed, which is ok, so the doctor just signed their part.


6. I am then moved to a second check with another doctor who did a quick review of allergies or injuries. For the ladies, they will ask if you are pregnant or breastfeeding etc.

Once you’re done here, they gave me a booth number where I moved to next.


7. I got my booth number, which included a space for me to sit and wait. After a 2-3 people, it was my turn to get vaccinated.

The feeling? Like a normal jab. Suntikan biasa je. No abnormal pain, no cold or burning sensation, just a little ant bite and it was over in seconds. I could even take a pic.

Note: I don’t know the protocols on photos, but I was allowed to selfie.

8. I was then moved to an area where they took one of my consent forms (the other is yours to keep), which had been updated every stage of the way. I also needed to scan the vaccine QR here with my MySejahtera.

It’s key to mention here that due to all the queueing and waiting, I had already passed the 30 min observation period that was required. So shortly after scanning and passing the form, they called me to give me my vaccination card.

So I got my vaccination card, and was informed that the next appointment for #dose2 will be made known on my MySejahtera app between 2-12 weeks.

Based on studies, 12 weeks yields the best efficacy for AstraZeneca, so there’s no harm waiting the next one out.

And with that, the vaccination is done!


Sharmine’s Post  Vaccination Experience @ UKM Bangi

Well, besides the initial soreness on the arm, I don’t feel any odd side effects yet but I’ll be monitoring it until the end of the day to see if anything funky pops up.

The MySejahtera app includes a link for you to report any symptoms, but I have had no side effects except sleepiness and tiredness, but I blame lack of rest or sleep for that.

All the best to the rest of you getting your shots!

AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine : A Quick Primer!

The AstraZeneca Vaxzevria vaccine, codenamed AZD1222, is a viral vector vaccine against COVID-19.

It uses a chimpanzee adenovirus – ChAdOx1 – which has been modified to prevent replication, to introduce a DNA sequence of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.

Once injected, the vaccine enters the cell and “teaches” it to produce the SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins and express them on its surface.

These spike proteins triggers the immune response to create antibodies that will protect you against the real SARS-CoV-2 virus.

This is a 2-dose vaccine, with the second dose given 12 weeks after the first dose.
