Previously, the MySejahtera app only allowed family members to register dependents who are above 18-years-old, but now the app is allowing parents to add their children as their dependents.

But remember, once registered as a dependent, the details of the individual cannot be registered on a different MySejahtera account. 

According to The Star, the move to immunise children and teenagers comes after the National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency’s (NPRA) recent approval for the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for children aged at least 12. 

It is also in line with the fifth phase of the National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme to begin immunising those in that age group by August. 

Have you registered for the vaccine yet? Jom register and let’s get vaccinated!
