Khairy: Unvaxxed children have to pay for first Covid-19 vaccine after May 15


PUTRAJAYA: Children aged five to 12 who are unvaccinated are only left with paid options if they intend to get their first Covid-19 vaccine dose after May 15, says Khairy Jamaluddin.

The Health Minister said the National Immunisation Programme for Children (PICKids) is set to end on May 15, and the government cannot afford to extend the deadline due to expiring supply.
