AstraZeneca Recipients Can Register For Booster Shots Starting From January 8 Onwards

ProtectHealth Corporation announced on Sunday (December 26) that AstraZeneca vaccination recipients cannot yet register in advance to go in for their Covid-19 booster doses since the earliest batch will not be eligible until January 8.

CodeBlue, citing ProtectHealth CEO Anas Alam Faizli on Friday (December 24), said that individuals initially vaccinated with AstraZeneca-Oxford’s dose can register on the waiting lists at public vaccination centres (PPVs) if they have completed the necessary six-month gap following their second dose.

ProtectHealth is responsible for managing private medical practitioners who participate in the National Covid-19 Immunisation Program (PICK).

Eligible AstraZeneca recipients would start receiving their appointment as the six-month interval is met.

If they are eligible and did not receive appointments, they can also register in a backup vaccinee list,” said Anas.

He said that no AstraZeneca recipients are now eligible, since the six-month interval has not been reached.

They can start registering as a backup list once they’re eligible.

They can visit the ProtectHealth website to see the list of PPVs, contact the PPVs and register their details as a backup vaccinee list,” he said.

Anas said that PPVs utilise the backup list to contact individuals for the booster shots to walk in and replace any no-shows.

Certain PPVs, however, including Biomedicare Clinic and Klink Ceria in Johor, as well as Family Care Clinic Sepanggar in Sabah, are prepared to add ineligible vaccine recipients to their waiting lists.
