Here’s a Step-By-Step Guide on the New Covid Vaccination Process

As you may already know, the new Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine has arrived in Malaysia following the National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme.

The first phase will begin on 26 February with the distribution of the vaccines to priority group 1 which consists of public and private healthcare personnel and our Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

The vaccination process involves 3 phases and 5 priority groups which can be seen in the image below.
