Needless to say, the first batch of the voluntary AstraZeneca vaccination has been a resounding success.
All 268,000 doses of the vaccine were snapped up within three hours of the opt-in going live online on Sunday (2 May).
If you missed your chance the first time around, fret not; another round is coming really, really soon.
More doses coming soon
Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation Khairy Jamaluddin has announced that Malaysians could soon opt-in for another round of AstraZeneca vaccination.
He said in a tweet on Thursday (6 May) that the opt-in window for round two will be opened next week.
Khairy also added that the opt-in for round two will also be opened for residents outside of the Klang Valley.
"Jawatankuasa Khas Jaminan Akses Bekalan Vaksin COVID-19 (JKJAVMY) will be announcing details for another AZ opt-in window & new PPVAZ locations outside of Klang Valley next week," he wrote.
Earlier this week, Khairy revealed that Malaysians can expect the arrival
of some 1.1 million doses this month via the COVID-19 Vaccines Global Access or Covax.
This will be followed by another 610,000 doses from AstraZeneca itself in June, another 410,000 doses in July and 1.2 million doses in August and September respectively.
The first batch of the opt-in will run until 6 June, and it will take place at four locations - World Trade Centre in KL, IDCC in Shah Alam, Universiti Malaya and Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.
For those of you who didn't manage to secure a slot this week, please remember to do so next week, OK?
