This vaccination process is for World Trade Centre Kuala Lumpur.
Check the MySejhtera mobile app for confirmation of your first dose appointment.
On arrival, the first thing to establish is which Station is your appointment. There are Station 1, 2 and 3. Free Wifi is available on site. There are staff at various waiting stages who will loudly announce what to do next, for example to move up to the next row. You will be instructed to scan the MySejahtera QR code twice.
Once you are in the big ballroom, you are given the Covid-19 Vaccination Consent Form in English/Malay, with an auto-assigned number. Fill and agree on the terms and conditions for yourself or your parents. Bring a black or blue pen along, and a board or something hard to write on. Or you can go right the front where there is a table with plenty of pens.
Next you go the Registration and Consultation B & C Sections for IC/ passport (for foreigners) check, and declare if you have any Medical History such as severe side-effects from past vaccinations, severe allergies, pregnancy, or currently breastfeeding.
There were young staff with BP Healthcare t-shirts who were very directive in pointing at the exact seat for you to sit and wait.
The most important section is the Vaccination Booths. In WTC KL there are more than 15 booths, with 2 nurses administrating the jab. The nurse will show the minimum 0.5 ml in the syringe before and after the injection. The nurse may warn that you may experience fever, fatigue,
The last section is the Observation Area where you will be told to time yourself for 15 minutes. This is to ensure there is no immediate reaction or side effects. Lastly you collect your Vaccination Card for you second dose, which was stated to check within 3 months. It is advisable to staple the Vaccination Card on to the Covid-19 Vaccination Consent Form, which you need to bring both for your second dose.

In summary, the whole process in WTCKL was very professional, efficient and relatively good pace. If you were like me worried about over-crowding in a big place like WTCKL, all the seats were 2m spaced in organized row in different sections. The injection was like a normal injection, like an ant bite. The whole process took 1 hour 15 minutes starting from 7:15pm. Apparently morning appointments take longer than evening appointments.
NOTICE: Getting vaccinated is way much better than risking and getting Covid-19 with 1% death rate.

The next article is my own experience of the side effects of the AstraZeneca jab I had.
My First 24 hours Experience After AstraZeneca Jab:
● Firstly, the jab is less painful normal injection, more like an ant bite.
● Firstly, nothing for the first 4 hours. Then a slight stuffy nose but no running nose, no fever, and no lump in the throat like before getting flu.
● At around 10 hours feeling like I was getting sick, fatigue, and sleepy.
● At 19 hours, there was some aching in the jab spot, the arm felt heavier, temperature went up slightly from 36.2C to 36.5C, then down to normal by the end of 24 hours.
Day 2 after AZ Jab:
Jab spot more aching today. But other than that, I am surprised that it’s hardly much suffering – much less than a normal running flu, or cough.
