Almost half of Putrajaya & KL have been vaccinated
As of today, the whole of Putrajaya, as well as 97.96% of Kuala Lumpur’s targeted population has successfully registered for vaccination, with 48.10% of Putrajaya and 48.17% of Kuala Lumpur’s targeted population having been vaccinated.
In the meantime, Malaysia has ramped up its vaccine supply, with 2.2 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, 12 million doses of the Sinovac vaccine and 1.2 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine anticipated to reach the country in July. Once Malaysia’s new stock of vaccines arrive, more slots for vaccinations are expected to be made available.
More than 220,000 vaccines administered in a day
On 17th June 2021, vaccination rates in Malaysia reached an all-time high of 221,706 doses administered in a single day, with 177,876 first doses and 43,830 second doses delivered respectively. This brings the total number of vaccine doses administered to 5,330,654, with 1,520,583 people having received both doses. At the same time, the Ministry of Health is recording an increasing rate of vaccination and decreasing rate of new COVID-19 cases in Malaysia.
National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister Khairy Jamaluddin previously announced that Malaysia’s target for June’s vaccination rate would be to reach 150,000 doses a day.
So with around 200,000 doses administered per day between 14th June to 17th June, Malaysia seems to be well on track towards fulfilling that goal, as long as vaccination efforts are maintained.

Malaysia’s daily vaccination rate reaches a peak of 220,000 doses
This latest news of Malaysia’s vaccination rate hitting an all-time high is an encouraging development. It’s a step in the right direction set out in the National Recovery Plan, which aims to get 10% of the population fully vaccinated in order to move to Phase 2 of the FMCO.
In order to reach the target of a daily average 150,000 vaccinations per day, from the 18th till the end of June, around 160,000 doses should be administered per day.
Considering the high number of doses that have been delivered the past few days, reaching that goal should not be too difficult of a feat for Malaysia to achieve.
