Since the release of the AstraZeneca (AZ) COVID-19 vaccine opt-in program, Malaysians have become not only aware, but more eager to be vaccinated. In less than an hour, 956,609 AZ slots were filled by Malaysians in the second phase of the registration period on May 26, 2021.
This shows that Malaysians are stepping up and playing our part to secure collective immunity whenever the opportunity arises. Companies that have struggled throughout the pandemic are also taking this time to show their gratitude to those who get vaccinated.

This list has been organized from the most recent to the oldest offers that we could find.
