Please note that your COVID-19 vaccination status in Malaysia will change on 1 April 2022, depending on the vaccine and number of doses you received.
Take a look at the finalised schedule of COVID-19 vaccination status changes that will take effect very soon!
Vaccination Status Changes For Seniors, Sinovac + Sinopharm Recipients
On 24 February 2022, Malaysia Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin announced that these individuals will be required to get a booster dose by 31 March 2022.
- 60 years and older who were fully-vaccinated with any COVID-19 vaccine
- 18 years and older who were fully-vaccinated with the Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine
That was extended on 24 March 2022, to include individuals 18 years and older who were fully vaccinated with the Sinopharm vaccine as well.
Starting 1 April 2022, individuals in all three groups groups who do not get their booster dose will lose their fully-vaccinated status.
To be clear – this is not a vaccine mandate. You are free to refuse the booster dose. However, your MySejahtera will show that you are not fully-vaccinated.
