If you’re thinking of getting the CoronaVac or Covilo Covid-19 vaccines in a private setting, know how much they cost. The Government has gazetted the ceiling prices for these 2 vaccines. Based on a circular received by CAP recently from the Ministry of Health, the prices are as follows:

> CoronaVac – maximum of RM62 at wholesale level, RM77 at retail level

> Covilo – maximum of RM49 at wholesale level, RM61 at retail level

The retail prices however, do not include the service fees and the cost of disposable items used in the vaccination process.

Implementation of the prices for these 2 vaccines, under the Price Control and Anti-Profiteering (Determination of Maximum Price) Order 2022, came into effect on 15 January 2022.

Under the law, private health facilities and pharmacies must display the prices “in a conspicuous position easily read by any person intending to purchase the vaccine”.

If you have been overcharged for the vaccines, you can complain to the authorities here:
