In Step 2 of the immunisation program, more will be included.

The government is considering expanding Phase 2 of the National Covid-19 Immunization Program to include more communities.

This is due to a low number of registrations for Covid-19 vaccinations, according to science, technology, and innovation minister Khairy Jamaluddin.

He mentioned that the new groups will be revealed on Monday.

Frontline workers are involved in Phase 1, which is still underway, and senior citizens and others in disadvantaged communities will be included in Phase 2.

In Phase 2, the elderly and high-risk groups such as the disabled and patients with chronic illnesses will continue to be the key focus groups, according to Khairy.

The additional list will be released after the Covid-19 Vaccine Supply Access Guarantee Special Committee approves it, he said.
