Covid:19: Choosing not to be vaccinated? We will make life 'difficult' for you, says Khairy


KUALA LUMPUR: The government will "continue to make life difficult" for those who refuse to be vaccinated against Covid-19, says Khairy Jamaluddin (pic).

''We will make life very difficult for you if you're not vaccinated because you choose not to,'' said the Health Minister

The Health Minister added that this would not apply to those who have valid medical reasons for not being vaccinated.

''If you cannot be vaccinated, that's fine. We will give you a MySejahtera digital exemption. But if you don't vaccinate yourself by choice, we will continue to make life difficult for you," said Khairy.

''You cannot dine in at restaurants, you cannot go into shopping centres,'' he said after officiating the 11th National Acute Myocardial Infarction Course being run in Bangsar by the Serdang Hospital on Saturday (Oct 16).

He was asked if the country would move towards making Covid-19 vaccination mandatory.

Khairy said he will be releasing the national testing strategy next week, adding that it will include a mandate for unvaccinated people to go through a paid weekly self-test.

''If you choose not to vaccinate yourself then we will probably ask you to do regular tests that you have to pay for. The message is to get yourself vaccinated,'' he said.
