Viral Sinovac message fake, says S’gor govt

SHAH ALAM: The Selangor government has denied a viral message claiming the state was rolling out additional doses of the Sinovac Covid-19 vaccine for people in the state.

Dr Siti Mariah also added that

the state’s contact tracing application, Selangkah, had opened registration for vaccination for companies interested in getting vaccines for their employees, and more information was available from the website — Bernama
