I am pretty sure that most of you reading this have registered with MySejatera App for the Covid-19 Vaccination Program.
This vaccination program is not an easy task and we are sure to face many hiccups initially just like other countries. Our Vaccination program is more complicated as we are administrating different types of vaccines which means the probabilities of mistakes will be higher. Anyway, I would like to thank the smartest Malaysia Minister in charge of the vaccination program, YB Khairy Jamaluddin for his efforts and personally going down to the floor (which he does not need to do so) to assist on the vaccination process.
For those of you who have taken the initiative to be vaccinated with AZ (which was optional this month, i.e. May 2021), I salute you. You should also thank YB Khairy Jamaluddin for allowing you to jump Q ahead of older and more vulnerable people.
And we Malaysians may soon get to choose which vaccine we want (announced on 27th May). Update 6pm @ 30 May 2021 – Khairy says Malaysians won’t be able to choose their preferred Covid-19 vaccine after all
For those who are like me waiting for my Appointment Date via MySejahtera App, you better check if you are in the system for the vaccination program.

MESSAGE FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE BEEN VACCINATED
Even if you are vaccinated, it does not mean that you will not be infected with the Covid-19 Virus. Most who have been vaccinated however do not experience any serious effects when infected. HOWEVER, a person who is vaccinated can still spread the virus to others!!! So wear a mask every time you go out even if you have been vaccinated!!! Don’t be selfish and put others at risk!!!
More Important PSA: So if you think you can go travel after you are vaccinated, you better get your facts right.
Fact No.1: The virus is still mutating and the vaccination is only effective for few months and you may need a booster shot again.
Fact No.2: You can still be infected with the Covid-19 virus (once again it is mutating).
Fact No.3: Most insurance policies EXCLUDE Pandemic. Which means if you are sick overseas with the Covid-19, you are going to be faced with massive headaches on medical bills!!!
