The recipient of the first dose of AstraZeneca Covid-19 is set tomorrow.
Recipients are urged to check their MySejahtera to double confirm the timing.
Some users complained that they realized that the timing has changed without notifications.
According to the Science, Technology and Innovation Minister's office, it affects small prospective recipients. They added that the retiming affected those who have their appointments tomorrow, May 5 at Universiti Malaya and Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.
The retimed appointment should prompt its recipients via the MySejahtera app, however, due to individual phone settings, one may not receive the notification. Hence, it is advised to reconfirm by checking on your MySejahtera app.
“They just changed mine in the app. No text message. No push notifications” said Samantha Chong, the former aide to the late de facto law minister Liew Vui Keong.
Boo Su Lyn, the editor-in-chief of the healthcare news portal CodeBlue, faced a similar issue.
I checked MySejahtera and found out that my AZ vaccination appointment was moved up from 9pm to 4pm, but on same day — May 5.— Boo Su-Lyn (@boosulyn) May 3, 2021
I didn’t get any notification on the change.
Hope @JKJAVMY will send SMS or push notifications from MySejahtera on any changes to vax slots. @Khairykj
Thank God I saw @boosulyn tweet! Mine got re-time from 11am to 10am. For future improvement hopefully @JKJAVMY @Khairykj boleh send push notification everytime you guys re-time the appointment, I can bet mesti ada yang tak perasan. To others, always check your appointment time ⏰ pic.twitter.com/EQbKgqNj2E— KZ???????????? (@teknosual) May 3, 2021
Again, those who will be receiving their first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine tomorrow are advised to double-check their appointment time.
