What happens if you missed your vaccine appointment?

by Grace Sundram

Getting your final date for vaccination is quite exciting but what happens when you actually missed out from getting the notifications on MySejahtera? Does that mean your name would be cancelled out of the list and you’ll be exempted from ever receiving your first dose?


Well, let’s find out.

Previously, recipients of the COVID-19 vaccination would often get a phone call to confirm or schedule an appointment. However, what if you missed the call as well? The Special Committee On COVID-19 Vaccine Supply (JKJAV) indicated that people who did not answer the call would not have their names removed from the list.


The phone call is just one of the many ways for you to receive an appointment date.

In addition, vaccination recipients who register using the MySejahtera application will get an appointment date through SMS and notice in MySejahtera 14 days before the date.


In which, the vaccine recipient must confirm the given date by answering yes or no.

That being said, individuals who were unable to attend the appointment or who missed the alerts can now check their MySejahtera app after seven days to receive the revised date and time.


You no longer need to make a call to their hotline as it will be all done automatically now.

Those who signed up for the AstraZeneca vaccine, however, are ineligible for this option. They would have to wait for their appointment under the National Immunisation Programme for that (PICK).

Applicants who have received an SMS may now check the status of their appointment at MySejahtera, or if the app isn’t working properly, they can check it out at vaksincovid.gov.my and 1800-888-828 by entering their identification card or passport number and registered telephone number.

Make sure to confirm your attendance within 48 hours. If you do not answer successfully or you answer NO, your date will be likely rescheduled to a much later date.
