According to Malaysian Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba, a total of 385,251 individuals have completed both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine as of yesterday (10 April 2021).

Dr Adham said in his Twitter posting today that 571,472 individuals have received the first dose of the vaccine, making the total number of people who have been inoculated with the Covid-19 vaccine in the country now stands at 956,723.

As a reference, recent statistics showed that Malaysia has an official population of 33 million as of last year. That means only approximately 1.167% of the Malaysian population have been inoculated with the full two doses of the vaccine and approximately 2.89% of the population have been inoculated with at least 1 dose of the vaccine.

In the infographic posted by Dr Adham, the states with the highest number of people who completed the first dose of vaccination are:

  • Selangor (76,612).
  • Sarawak (59,531).
  • Sabah (54,058).
  • Perak (52,677).
  • Kuala Lumpur (52,110).

In addition, the five states with the highest number of people who completed both doses of vaccination are:

  • Selangor (52,133).
  • Perak (41,348).
  • Sabah (41,029).
  • Kuala Lumpur (33,603).
  • Sarawak (30,639).

As of 10 April, the number of people registered for the Covid-19 vaccine is at 8,443,581, which is 34.8 per cent of the total population in Malaysia. Selangor has the highest number of people registered (2,263,133), followed by Johor (1,069,750).

Phase 2 of the vaccination program will begin this month (April) up until August this year, involving 9.4 million individuals, involving those in the vulnerable groups as well as the senior citizens aged 65 years old and above.

Phase 3 of the vaccination program, however, will start in May until February 2022, targeting approximately 13.7 million individuals.
