Ministry: Vaccination won’t be compulsory


KUALA LUMPUR: Vaccination will not be made compulsory and the Health Ministry will continue to use education to encourage immunisation, says Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam.

“Very few countries make vaccination mandatory. As a nation, we cannot enforce everything by law,” he said, comparing it to anti-smoking education in favour of banning cigarettes.
