Khairy Jamaluddin posted tweet earlier this morning Fr. MySejahtera an application that now allows users to register dependents for the COVID-19 vaccine.
However, this feature was first introduced to Apple users, although he assured that the update should be available to others soon.
Just as you register for the vaccine yourself, the process of registering your dependents is similarly appropriate.
It is on the same card you access (COVID-19 Vaccination) to see your own registration, and you will now see “Add Vaccine Dependent” below it.
Here you will be able to see a list of addicts as you add them. Adding a dependent will require you to have:
- Full name,
- NRIC / passport number,
- Current address.
As for who you can register as dependent, it includes spouses, children, siblings, parents / in-laws, grandparents, guardians and others.
You cannot add a dependent member who has already signed up for the vaccine with their MySejahtera account or on someone else’s account.
Furthermore, the dependent must be over 18 years of age to proceed with registration.
This feature was introduced after public complaints that many of their older relatives did not own smartphones and therefore lacked a MySejahtera registration account for the COVID-19 vaccine.
Older people have priority in the vaccination phases, and the update comes in time before the second phase of the program, which is due to begin in April.
A a total of 68,003 people out of 48,564 senior citizens and 19,439 people with disabilities, the government aims to receive the vaccine in the second phase.
