Dajjal or whatever, name-calling won't affect KJ's firm stance against anti-vaxxers


KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The government has made enough effort to explain the goodness and effectiveness of the Covid-19 vaccines to the public, says Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin.

He said his ministry had in fact provided all the scientific evidence on the effectiveness of the vaccines to the people.

"And we continue to provide the explanation. I’m sorry I have to be firm on this issue. Call me dajjal (evil) or whatever," he tweeted on his Twitter account Monday (Oct 18).

Khairy had previously said that the government would be taking a firm approach against those who refused to be vaccinated against Covid-19 by making life difficult for them.

Yesterday, Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim Anwar, who is also PKR president, said it was the government’s role to continue appealing to and educating the public on the advantages of taking the vaccines to fight Covid-19. - Bernama
