Vaccination walk-ins for teenagers to begin nationwide on Thursday (Sept 23)

PUTRAJAYA: Covid-19 vaccination walk-ins for teenagers will begin on Thursday (Sept 23) at 156 PPV (vaccine centres) that have been identified by the Health Ministry nationwide.

Deputy Health Minister Datuk Dr Noor Azmi Ghazali said in a statement that the walk-in method will be conducted according to schedules issued by schools.

“The National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme for Adolescents (CITF-A) has identified 156 public and integrated PPVs nationwide to boost the capacity of walk-in vaccination drives for teenagers.

“The walk-in process for teenagers will be implemented based on schools located nearest to the PPVs that have been identified for the programme. The walk-ins will be conducted according to a schedule set by schools and issued to the students and parents involved. For teenagers that are not school-goers, they can walk in to any of the 156 PPVs that are nearest to their location,” he said.

“However, if the vaccine quota at a PPV has run out for the day, they will be given an appointment at the same facility the next day or at a nearby private health clinic,” said Dr Noor Azmi, who is the chairman of CITF-A.
