Claims of HK rejecting Malaysian vaccination certs false

PETALING JAYA: False claims of vaccination certificates of Malaysian travellers being rejected by Hong Kong authorities are being circulated via messaging apps and social media.

A check on the official website of Hong Kong’s Department of Health shows a list of all the vaccines currently being administered under Malaysia’s National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme with the recommended doses as being recognised for specific purposes by its government.

The vaccines listed are Pfizer-BioNTech, Sinovac, Oxford AstraZeneca, Janssen, Sinopharm and Sputnik V.

It also notes that Malaysia – along with 27 other countries – is under Group B of high-risk specified places which require unvaccinated Hong Kong residents who have stayed in any of the countries to undergo compulsory quarantine for 21 days and take four Covid-19 tests during quarantine.
