Covid-19: Be wary of false information on vaccinations, says MCMC

CYBERJAYA (Bernama): The public has been advised to be wary of false information being spread on Covid-19 vaccinations.

The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) said they should verify all information on the vaccination programme with the Committee on Covid-19 Vaccine Supply Access Guarantee (JKJAV), the Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) and the District Health Office in their respective areas.

"Providing personal information to unknown parties can also indirectly opens the risk of exploitation of personal information and breach of privacy,” it said in a statement on Friday (July 9).

The statement was issued following a now-viral message urging people to provide personal information, claiming that large-scale vaccinations were going on at the Bangi Avenue Convention Centre (BACC)

The Hulu Langat District Health Office, through its Facebook page, confirmed that the information was false. - Bernama
