In line with the reopening of these additional sub-sectors, KPDNHEP informs the following:

  • For the type of vaccine that requires two doses of injection (Sinovac, AstraZeneca, Pfizer), the individual must pass the 14th day from the second dose's injection date. 

  • For vaccine types that require only one dose (Johnson & Johnson and CanSino), the individual must pass the 28th day from the injection date;


(ii) All companies under the distribution trade sector that are allowed to re-operate do NOT need to submit information on employees who have been fully vaccinated;


(iii) The distribution trade sub-sector in the States under Phase 2 of NRP (Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang, Perak, Penang and Sabah) can re-operate WITHOUT having to achieve a complete vaccination rate of 50% of the adult population in the state; and


(iv) Premises owners must apply for permission to operate through the Centralized Information Management System (CIMS) at https://notification.miti.gov.my/login

  • Industry players and premises owners can operate WITHOUT having to wait for approval from KPDNHEP
