COVID-19 | Walk-in vaccination in the Klang Valley will be expanded to those above 18 years of age, according to Khairy Jamaluddin.

The minister in charge of the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (NIP) told a press conference today that all adults aged 18 and above can walk in at selected vaccination centres (PPV) to get their shots beginning Aug 5.

This only applies to those who haven't received their appointment for vaccination.

For individuals aged 40 and above and those with comorbidities, the walk-in initiative starts Monday (Aug 2).

"Not all PPVs in the Klang Valley will receive walk-in recipients. A list of centres that accept walk-ins will be released later today," he said.

Khairy added that it would be on a first-come-first-served basis and depends on the capacity of each centre.

For those unable to get their vaccination after walking in, they will be prioritised to receive their shots the next day, he said.

Prior to this, the Covid-19 Task Force had opened walk-in inoculation to Klang Valley senior citizens, which began on July 17.
