Covid-19: Vaccination passport may be introduced for travel after more M'sians inoculated, says Health DG


PETALING JAYA: Once more Malaysians are fully immunised, a form of "Covid-19 vaccination passport” may be introduced by the government as a requirement for interstate, inter-district and international travel, says Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

Dr Noor Hisham was optimistic about the rate of vaccination in the country, as he said herd immunity may be achieved as soon as the end of the year if daily vaccination figures can be stepped up.
