As we all know, since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in Malaysia, the government has implemented many initiatives to control the spread of the disease in our country and support those whose lives have been both physically and financially impacted by the disease. The government has recently announced that Malaysia’s National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme is scheduled to begin at the end of February 2021 and will be rolled out in three (3) phases up to February 2022.
In line with the latest updates provided by the government on the National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme, we are happy to announce that we will be covering all AIA Individual customers who have a medical plan with us for the medical expenses incurred by any complications, side effect(s) and/or any adverse reactions that requires hospital admission after taking a COVID-19 vaccine that has been approved by the Malaysian government and administered by the appointed parties accordingly.
