A slur on a noble profession

THE police must be congratulated for exposing the scam by the doctor in a private clinic in Kuala Terengganu who had allegedly issued 1,900 fake Covid-19 vaccination certificates, “Doc held over fake vaccination certs” (The Star, Jan 11).

The question now is: “Is this just the tip of the iceberg? How many other private clinics have been complicit in this nefarious practice?” If this can happen in Terengganu, it is likely that it could happen elsewhere, too. As such, the authorities must leave no stone unturned in bringing all the miscreants to book. Failure to do so would undermine public confidence in the national vaccination programme, which has been very successfully implemented.
