The wait is said to be due to the fact that the government is still waiting on batches of the vaccine to arrive to our shores.

“Babies born from 1st Jan this year onwards are eligible for the vaccination.

“People are asking about babies born before that. For that, the ministry has no budget, and thus we are not able to provide them with the vaccination, ” said the deputy minister.

As of this year, the Ministry of Health has a budget allocation of RM60 million from Budget 2020 to obtain the vaccines, which will be distributed to all government hospitals and health clinics.
