In a special announcement today (22 December), Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin volunteers himself to be one of the first people to be injected with the Covid-19 vaccine.

Astro Awani reported that the Prime Minister said this will be a method to convince Malaysians that the vaccine is safe and effective.

Vaksin

“This will be followed by frontline staff, before being given to target groups, namely high-risk groups such as the elderly, those with non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and chronic respiratory diseases.”

An agreement has been signed with pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca to obtain 6.4 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine. It is the third agreement after the government entered into an agreement with COVAX for the purchase of 10 per cent of the vaccine and the company Pfizer for 20 per cent of the same purchase, late last month.

The government will spend US $ 504.4 million (RM2.05 billion) which is 80 per cent more than their initial target which is to provide vaccines to 70 per cent of Malaysians.
