CITF announced that although walk-ins and payment on arrival at the corresponding PPV is allowed, it is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Starting from September 27 to October 6 2021, the Covid-19 vaccination programme will be open to foreign workers of all sectors in the Klang Valley. Vaccinations will be given either by secured appointments or by walking in to the allocated vaccination centre (PPV).

Reported by Bernama and the country’s Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF), all foreign workers can receive their vaccinations at the Construction Industry Development Board Malaysia (CIDB) Convention Centre PPV setup in Jalan Cheras from 9am to 6pm.

“In line with the focus on mop-up efforts or looking for those who have yet to receive Covid-19 vaccination in the Klang Valley, CITF has taken several new measures as a continuation of the vaccination efforts of non-citizens working in the Klang Valley, under CIDB’s supervision,“ according to the statement released yesterday.

The statement goes on to say that non-citizens are encouraged to register themselves or through their employers online at https://vaccine.cidblink.com to secure an appointment in order to speed up the registration process upon arrival at the CIDB PPV.

However, each person will be charged RM90 for two doses of the vaccine which will have to be paid for online. Once payment is made, an appointment date will be provided via email and/or text message.

CITF also informed that although walk-ins and payment on arrival at the centre is allowed, those opting to do this will be subjected to wait for vacant slots on that particular day. Employers sending more than 10 employees in a day will need to send a company representative to assist their employees at the CIDB PPV.

Employers are reminded of the responsibility to ensure their employees understand all required processes and forms that need to be filled out at the PPV, such as digital authorisation forms in order to facilitate a more efficient vaccination process.

The CITF reminds all non-citizens to bring along relevant documents such as passports and printed identification material, along with a smartphone and further proof that each person is working in the Klang Valley.

Due to daily capacity of the allocated PPV being 2,000 people, walk-ins will be treated on a first-come, first-serve basis, which also depends on the daily vaccine supply. Vaccinations are also subject to the terms and conditions outlined by the Ministry of Health and the standard operating procedures (SOP) at the CIDB PPV.

Any queries or questions may be directed to the Vaccination Secretariat Team at 03-4042 8880 / 011-3549 1795 or via email to [email protected]
