Covid-19 Vaccination in Malaysia

The COVID-19 vaccine is provided for free to all citizens and non-citizens of Malaysia. On January 11, 2022, KKM announced the availability and roll out of COVID-19 booster shots. The booster shot is highly recommended to ensure optimal protection against COVID-19 infection especially from severe symptoms, and, in unfortunate cases, deaths.

Post-Vaccination/Booster Care Tips

It's important to stay hydrated, get enough rest and avoid strenuous exercise. Like most vaccines, you may experience side effects from the vaccination and booster shot. Most side effects are mild, and you will get better within a few days. Talk to a doctor for advice and medicine to alleviate any pain and discomfort experienced after getting vaccinated.
