The Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) recently announced that foreign workers from all sectors in the Klang Valley could participate in the Covid-19 vaccination programme through appointment or on a walk-in basis from September 27 to October 6.

According to CITF, vaccination for the group will take place at the vaccination centre (PPV) setup at the Construction Industry Development Board Malaysia (CIDB) Convention Centre in Jalan Cheras from 9 am until 6 pm.

In a statement, CITF said that in line with the focus on mop-up efforts and searching for those who have not received Covid-19 vaccination in Klang Valley, it had taken a few new measures to continue the vaccination efforts of non-citizens working in the area under CIDB's supervision. 

 

How to sign up

Non-citizens are encouraged to register their names online at the website https://vaccine.cidblink.com/ to arrange an appointment and expedite the registration process when they arrive at the CIDB PPV.

They can register for the programme individually or through their employer. The fee is RM90.00 per person for two (2) vaccine doses, and they must pay online. After registration and online payment, they will be given an appointment via email and a text message. 

According to CITF, participants who do not sign up and opt for walk-in at the CIDB PPV can make the payment upon arrival at the centre. However, they are subject to the availability of the vaccines and vacancies on the day.

The daily capacity of PPV is 2,000 people per day. CITF said those who opt for walk-in would be based on a first-come-first-serve policy, depending on the daily vaccine supply and capacity at the PPV.

Participants must bring relevant documents, such as any printed identity document or a passport, along with a smartphone and proof that they worked in the Klang Valley.

For employers

Employers who send more than ten employees in a day must have a company representative present to manage the employees at the CIDB PPV.

According to CITF, employers are also responsible for ensuring their employees understand all the procedures and forms that need to be filled in the PPV, such as digital authorisation forms, to speed up the vaccination process.

 

The vaccination is subject to the terms and conditions made by the Ministry of Health and the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) at the CIDB PPV.
