The government has recently expressed concerns about the low number of Malaysians registered for the Covid-19 vaccination. In fact, only less than half of the total Malaysian population has registered for the vaccine!

According to the Coordinating Minister of the National COVID-19 Immunisation Program Khairy Jamaluddin, if the number of people registered for the Covid-19 vaccine is still low in September, the government may decide to make vaccination mandatory for all Malaysians.

Furthermore, he added that this decision is to ensure that our country will have at least 70 per cent of the population vaccinated before December, to achieve the ideal level of herd immunity.

Khairy also said in a BFM radio interview that Malaysia will obtain more vaccination supplies by September. “I have told the cabinet on whether to make vaccination compulsory for everyone in September,” he said, according to Sin Chew Daily.

Individuals who are in phase 2 of vaccination will receive the date of appointments beginning 5 April and the confirmation process needs to be done within 48 hours.
