During his press conference alongside Health Minister, Dr Adham Baba yesterday (5 July), he said that he would be discussing with the EU ambassador to get clearer information on the EU’s actual immigration policy related to vaccination. Khairy Jamaluddin added that the EU is not supposed to be discriminating as to where the vaccine is produced as the same vaccine formula is used in all its manufacturing facilities.

He also said that the AstraZeneca company would be asked to inform the EU that all its production facilities implement Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) reported Astro Awani.

“So there is absolutely no reason for the EU to discriminate between one AZ (AstraZeneca) facility from another.”

The minister also said that the EU should extend their recognition of all vaccines as long as the vaccine has been recognised by the World Health Organisation (WHO). “All countries should allow the entry of visitors who have received vaccines listed by the World Health Organization (WHO).”
