Govt decides against allowing public to choose vaccine

Putrajaya has decided against giving an option for the rakyat to choose their type of vaccine, said Khairy Jamaluddin, the minister in charge of the country’s Covid-19 immunisation programme.

This came only three days after Khairy announced that the government was looking at giving the option via the MySejahtera application.

“We thought about that initially, but now the concern is to increase and ramp up the vaccination number. So, we will just give whatever (vaccines) we have,” he said.

“If we give them an option, maybe that will slow things down,” he told a press conference after visiting the vaccination centre at Malaysia International Digital Entrepreneurs Centre (MiDEC) today.

Some may choose to wait if they were given an option to choose their vaccines, he said.

Khairy said the government planned to set up five mega vaccination centres (PPV) in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.
