Health Ministry lodges police reports against anti-vaxxer groups

PETALING JAYA: The Health Ministry has lodged several police reports against anti-vaccination groups in the country, says Khairy Jamaluddin (pic).

The Health Minister hoped that swift action would follow such as investigating and charging them if necessary.

“This group continues to spread fake news, and threatens public health as well... (it) is annoying,” he tweeted on Friday (Oct 15).

Khairy was responding to a Twitter user who questioned the lack of enforcement against anti-vaccination groups in the country.

Separately, Khairy said 5,410 booster doses have been administered, mainly to medical frontliners, as of Thursday (Oct 14).

“Senior citizens will start receiving their boosters at nearby general practitioner clinics soon,” he tweeted.

As of Oct 15, 91.2% of the adult population have been fully vaccinated, while 95% have received at least the first dose of Covid-19 vaccine.
