Selangor’s Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari said residents aged 18 and above and who had received two doses of vaccine could get the booster jab via walk-in to the nearest Selcare clinic.
According to the Edge Market, he said in a news conference that the list of Selcare clinics involved in the SelVax Booster Programme is available on the website https://selcareclinic.com/our-clinic/ or via the SELangkah application.
The public is, however, advised to register first with the SELangkah application for the booster dose to avoid congestion at the clinics involved.
“The booster shot given is that of the Sinovac vaccine which is suitable for recipients of the two earlier doses of any vaccine received.
“This dose is for better immunisation for the public against the viral disease and like the other vaccines, Sinovac has also been proven to reduce the health risk of the vital infection,” said Aminudin.
157 ribu dos penggalak percuma untuk rakyat Negeri Selangor bermula esok. Tempah di vax.selangkah.my atau di aplikasi Selangkah.

All information on receiving the booster dose through the SelVa Booster Programme will be conveyed by the clinics involved through the MySejahtera app.
He added that the programme would also be implemented in certain localities based on requests made by the state assemblymen.
Guys, please register to get the booster shot if you’re eligible! We’re all in this together!
Stay safe, everyone.
