The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that we, as one global community, can only be safe if everyone is included and protected. Vaccine is one of the methods that can help to contain the pandemic. The vaccine works by protecting you and your loved one from getting severe complications as a result of COVID-19 infection.
Elderly and persons with underlying medical conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, lung diseases et cetera are particularly vulnerable of developing severe complications due to COVID-19. Therefore, it is highly encouraged for everyone to be vaccinated.
UNHCR welcomes the Government of Malaysia’s efforts to ensure access to COVID-19 vaccination for all including refugees and asylum seekers living in Malaysia.
To play our part to support the initiative, UNHCR encourage all refugees and asylum seekers holding UNHCR document to register their interest for COVID-19 vaccination through the following platforms.
