Since the opt-in programme for the AstraZeneca (AZ) COVID-19 vaccines was released, Malaysians have become not just aware, but more eager to be vaccinated. Within an hour, 956,609 slots for AZ were taken up by Malaysians during the second phase of the registration period on May 26, 2021.
This goes to show that Malaysians are stepping up and playing our parts to achieve herd immunity as soon as the opportunity arises. Businesses that struggled throughout the pandemic are also taking this time to show their appreciation to those getting vaccinated.
Hence, we’ve compiled a list of brands that are giving away freebies and promos for those who’ve been vaccinated or have registered for it. Do note that all the deals below are limited to 1 claim per person, and are offered to those who’ve received either the first or full doses of COVID-19 vaccines.
This list has been organised from the newest to the oldest deals we were able to find.
