Minister of Science, Technology, and Innovation, Khairy Jamaluddin will recommend to the Cabinet that the vaccine for Covid-19 should be free for Malaysians.

In a press conference after the launch of the National Technology and Innovation Sandbox (NTIS), he said “The Cabinet has not decided yet, but my recommendation is that once we have purchased the Covid-19 vaccine, they should be given to all Malaysians free of charge.” as reported by The Edge Markets.

Malaysia is also one of the Asian countries apart from China, that is looking at other vaccine manufacturers that could produce a safe and effective vaccine fast and at a reasonable price.

It was also reported that the minister said, “The National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Division (NPRA) under the Health Ministry requires data from the clinical trials to be shared before the purchase could be approved. That data will tell us whether or not the vaccine is safe and effective.”

He also added that the Science, Technology, and Innovation Ministry was assigned by the Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin to directly negotiate with the vaccine manufacturers so that Malaysia could purchase them at the best possible price.

Do you think we’ll get access to the free vaccine? Share your thoughts in the comments.
