According to Khairy Jamaluddin, over 40% of individuals who are due for booster dose appointments under the National Covid-19 Immunisation Program are not showing up for their designated slots. 

The Health Minister said that if booster enrollment stays low, hospitalisation rates would rise.

“If booster take-up is low, especially among the elderly and those with comorbidities, hospitalisation numbers will go up. This is for sure,” he posted in a tweet.

As a result, Khairy advised people who had received appointment dates to attend the clinic and receive the vaccine, as it would boost their immunity and protection against the virus.

On Oct 13, a national booster dose rollout was initiated for fully vaccinated individuals to ensure that the immunity acquired after their vaccinations could be maintained optimally, particularly against Delta variants.
