As you may know, the Malaysian government arranges COVID-19 vaccines based on age groups. Elderly people get priority, with younger people getting their doses later. Now, the government is allowing parents to register their children as dependents.
According to The Star, a Ministry of Health consultant has confirmed that you can soon register your children as vaccine dependents on MySejahtera. Specifically, you can register children between 5 to 11 years old. All you need is to enter their full names and MyKad or passport number. For your info, this feature was technically implemented last year. But at the time, it applied to children over 12 years old.
Covid vaccination for 5-11 years old will begin soon. If your children are your dependents on MySejahtera, you can add them as vaccine dependent to register for the vaccine. More details will be announced later. #PICKids pic.twitter.com/FgXO3mnnec— (@ayshardzn) January 18, 2022
