Hopefully, this puts a stop to the ’empty syringe’ fear among Malaysians.
While Malaysians are eager to obtain their vaccination, a growing fear among vaccine goers is if they will receive an ’empty syringe’ followed by confessions by a handful of Malaysians who experienced it for themselves.
In his press conference today (23 July), Minister of Science Technology and Innovation (MOSTI), Khairy Jamaluddin said that the CITF is looking at this issue seriously and would like to ensure everyone has a smooth vaccination process. He added that from the 16 million doses given there have only been 13 police report cases of the ’empty syringe’ issue.
Go ahead and film yourselves!
The minister also reassured that investigations are being conducted into these reports and the empty vaccination issue has no relation with the vaccine selling syndicate. In regards to the incident in Sungai Petani, he said that the nurse in charge has admitted to negligence and has also received a warning from the authorities.
To avoid such incidents in the future, the ministry has come up with two steps for vaccine-goers. Firstly, is that the vaccine administrator must show the receiver the syringe filled with the necessary amount of vaccine. Secondly, now vaccine receivers CAN RECORD themselves receiving their vaccination.
“Go ahead, film yourselves and take a video of your vaccination so that you have hard proof and that we also have hard proof that you have received a proper dosage for your vaccination.”
He added that he hopes this will put a stop to the issue as to not interfere with the ongoing work of the frontliners who have been interrupted in their work as a result of this.
Is this step welcomed by the public? Let us know what you think about this!
