FREE Sinovac Booster Vaccine In Selangor Starting TODAY
The SelVax Booster Programme will provide 157,000 free Covid-19 vaccine booster doses to citizens of Selangor starting today, according to Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari.
Residents aged 18 years or older who have already received two vaccination doses may walk-in to their local SelCare facility to obtain the booster shot, he added.
“The list of the SelCare clinics involved in the SelVax Booster Programme is available on its website or via the Selangkah app,” he said at a news conference.

However, the public is urged to register for the booster dose using the Selangkah app beforehand to minimise congestion at the clinics involved.
“The booster shot given is that of the Sinovac vaccine, which is suitable for those who had received two earlier doses of any vaccine (brand).
“This dose is for better immunisation for the public against Covid-19, and like the other vaccines, Sinovac has been proven to reduce the health risk of infections.
“All information on receiving the booster dose through the SelVax Booster Programme will be conveyed by the clinics involved through the MySejahtera app,” Aminudin added.
He said that the initiative would also be implemented in certain communities in response to assemblymen's requests.
“Besides that, the state government will be extending the Covid-19 Assessment Centres’ Management Progamme and monitoring of self-quarantined patients through the Selangkah app to boost response to this pandemic.
“Through this system, patients can be evaluated fast and referred for further treatment through the telehealth system, or admitted to quarantine centres and hospitals to avoid brought-in-dead cases during the quarantine period,” he said.
As of November 26, there were 616,980 cases tracked by the Selangkah system, which identified 38,809 individuals who were isolating themselves at home while experiencing deteriorating health issues.
