KUALA LUMPUR: Close to 1.4 million individuals who have expressed interest to get vaccinated against Covid-19 via the MySejahtera mobile application, have yet to complete the registration process.
Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said until March 13, a total 1,398,494 registrations were received but these individuals had left out important information on their health and their current residential address.
The individuals, he added, had only verified their names and MyKad number but did not proceed further while on the application.
“They did not complete the health assessment section and provide their latest address. These information are crucial and a complete registration is needed for us to issue an appointment for the vaccination.
“Their addresses are vital because we will give an appointment to receive the doses at the Covid-19 Vaccination Centre closest to them. We do not follow the address on their MyKad as there are some who have moved.
“We will schedule vaccination appointments based on the address provided on the MySejahtera app,” said Khairy during a virtual press conference on the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme today.
Khairy urged those who have yet to complete the registration process to do so the soonest possible and a text message (SMS) will be blasted from this afternoon as reminders.
