Dealing with anti-vax campaigns


Big barrier: The National Covid Immunisation Programme is ramping up the administration of vaccines with the setting up of mega immunisation centres like the Mega PPV KLCC, but the anti-vaxxers pose a challenge to the country’s effort to achieve herd immunity.

EVERY afternoon, we are faced with a distressing new set of Covid-19 case numbers – this past week alone a surge of 5, 000 to 7, 000 new infections have been reported daily. Dedicated intensive care units across the country meanwhile are operating beyond full capacity. The need to vaccinate as many people in the shortest time as possible has never been more vital.

While the National Covid Immunisation Programme is ramping up the administration of vaccines, it faces a huge challenge: naysayers who are spreading unsubstantiated, false and misleading information about the Covid-19 vaccines. Their aim: To discourage people from getting vaccinated.
