No vaccinations at night during Ramadan, says Deputy Health Minister

PETALING JAYA: The Health Ministry will not conduct Covid-19 vaccinations at night during the month of Ramadan, says Deputy Health Minister Datuk Dr Noor Azmi Ghazali.

He was quoted in a report by Malay daily Sinar Harian as saying that vaccinations will be conducted until evening for those who registered through the MySejahtera application, so that Muslims may perform their prayers at night.

"I'm of the opinion that if vaccination is done at night, they would not come because they want to perform the terawih prayers.

"For those staying in the interiors such as the Orang Asli, we will send medical officers through our outreach programme to provide the CanSino vaccine, which only takes one jab," he told the media after a Malaysia Prihatin event at the Bagan Serai Community hall on Tuesday (April 13).

When asked about Covid-19 concerns at Ramadan bazaars, Dr Noor Azmi, who is also Bagan Serai MP, urged the public to always abide by standard operating procedures set by the Health Ministry.

Dr Noor Azmi also presented a mock cheque for RM38,000, representing funds to be distributed to 38 mosques in the parliamentary constituency in conjunction with Ramadan.
