MCA Youth urges all Malaysians to get vaccinated


PETALING JAYA: MCA Youth is calling on Malaysians to immunise themselves against Covid-19.

Its chief Nicole Wong said the movement was concerned over the stand of anti-vaxxers who are against the idea of vaccination, adding that they might spread their belief to others as well.

“We would like to urge all Malaysians to get the vaccination because it will protect us against the Covid-19 virus, ” she said in a statement yesterday.

She added that people should not be worried as the vaccines procured by Malaysia were safe and had been tested on thousands of people before being approved.

“There is no proof that vaccines are dangerous to your life and health or that it can alter your DNA, ” she said.

Wong also called on Malaysians to be updated on the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme.

Angkatan Koperasi Kebangsaan Malaysia Bhd (Angkasa), which represents 14,688 cooperatives with 6.1 million members, hoped that the immunisation programme would have a positive impact on the daily lives of all Malaysians and on the economy.

Angkasa president Datuk Abdul Fattah Abdullah said the organisation hoped that the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme would help Malaysians benefit from the positive impact.

The first batch of 312,390 Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines, which arrived in the country on Sunday, would be administered to 271,802 frontliners, 57.3% of whom comprised medical personnel and the rest involving non-medical frontliners.

To date, Malaysia has access to a supply of 66.7 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines through the Covax Facility and early purchases from five manufacturers.

The programme will involve the immunisation of 70% of the population under three phases, starting with frontliners from now to April.

The second phase is from April to August for those in high-risk groups while the third phase from May to February 2022 are for adults aged 18 and above.
