Covid-19: Khairy denies viral screenshot, says is fully vaccinated

KUALA LUMPUR: A viral screenshot with an alleged image of Khairy Jamaluddin's Covid-19 vaccination status is untrue, says the Health Minister.

Khairy said the screenshot, showing his personal details and Covid-19 vaccination status, which went viral on Wednesday (Jan 5), via the website belonged to him but the website was no longer active or updated.

He said the website was created in the early stages of the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme to allow the public to check the details of their appointments.

"However, after the vaccination rate of the adult population reached 90% in October 2021, the website was no longer active or updated.

"I ask the public not to be influenced by the actions of irresponsible parties to undermine the country's vaccination efforts," he said in a post on his official Facebook page Thursday (Jan 6).

Khairy said the screenshot stated that his appointment status was "UNDER PROCESS" while other details such as the vaccination centre, appointment date and time were not stated.

He said he received the first dose of the CoronaVac Covid-19 vaccine on March 18 last year, adding that he was the first recipient of the vaccine in Malaysia, which was broadcast live on television.

"I also showed the MySejahtera application display after receiving the vaccine. Those who have not watched the live broadcast can watch it at," he added.

Khairy said he had also taken Pfizer’s Comirnaty booster jab last September, before leaving for Himeji, Japan to attend the 72nd World Health Organisation Regional Committee Meeting for the Western Pacific. - Bernama
