PUTRAJAYA: Students going abroad who have not reached the age of 18 when they receive their vaccination appointments can still be innoculated, says Khairy Jamaluddin.
However, their parents or guardians will have to sign consent forms to allow them to be vaccinated, the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme coordinating minister said on Monday (July 5).
According to Khairy, more than 8,000 vaccination appointments have been issued to date to students who are leaving for studies abroad.
“However, there are issues because when they received the appointment dates, some had not turned 18 yet.
“We will be giving vaccinations to those who will turn 18 this year as they will be leaving for their studies. A condition that we set is that parents or guardians will have to sign consent forms,” he added.
