Don't spread fake COVID-19 vaccine news, or face stern action
Apr 06, 2021
Social media users have been reminded not to spread fake news about the COVID-19 vaccine, as they will face stern action under the law.
The Health Ministry says this also applies to any misinformation about the National Immunisation Program, as it could jeopardize public confidence.
This follows several fake reports recently, alleging individuals died due to the vaccine.
AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine will be used under National Immunisation Program
Malaysia will go ahead with plans to use the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine in the National Immunisation Program.
The Health Ministry says it's because the vaccine's benefits outweigh its risks.
This comes after reports alleged that some recipients in the UK experienced adverse side-effects.
APHM ready to help government boost immunisation program registration numbers
Private hospitals will soon help the government register people for the National COVID-19 Immunisation Program.
The Association of Private Hospitals Malaysia says those who sign up via these facilities will still receive vaccines from the government, as private procurement has yet to start.
This comes after the Health Ministry said vaccine registration numbers are still low, at around 8 million nationwide.
