IPOH (May 23): The congestion at the Indera Mulia Stadium vaccination centre here on Friday was due to the presence of 799 individuals who had defaulted on the appointment set for them through the MySejahtera application to get their vaccine jab.

Perak Health director Datuk Dr Ding Lay Ming said the defaulters went to the stadium on Friday, hoping to walk in and be given the vaccine jab that day, which was the first day of the implementation of the Enhanced Movement Control Order in the Kinta district, which also involves Ipoh.

“The actual number of appointments given through MySejahtera for May 21 was for 1,570 people, but there were 799 who came without an appointment and were with escorts, hence the congestion,” she said in a statement.

Expressing her disappointment over the matter, Dr Ding advised the public to go for the vaccine jab based on the appointment date set for them.

Those who cannot make it on the appointment date set should contact the MySejahtera Helpdesk, she said.

Meanwhile, Dr Ding said a total of 298 potential haj pilgrims had been identified to receive the vaccine and they had been given an appointment date to be given the jab.
