KUALA LUMPUR : Current controversy concerning the administering of Covid-19 vaccines needs to be swiftly addressed as it may affect the authenticity of Malaysia’s vaccination certificates in the future.

This was the opinion of an industry player and two medical specialists who jointly expressed their distress over reports of questionable delivery of vaccines via a “Letters to the Editor” addressed to the New Straits Times.

While the government effort in speeding up the vaccination process is being applauded, there appear to be some reservations on the authentication process of the vaccination being properly administered so that the world at large are able to trust our vaccine passport in the near future.

The negative news reported on empty syringes and un-discharged vaccines into arms have caused more agitation among people who have received their jabs as to whether they have been actually vaccinated and protected.

These issues could end up to be deep-rooted severe connotations if not properly and swiftly addressed.

It is crucial for the authorities to address the matter as this impacts Malaysia’s vaccination certificate which every citizen would need to carry with them at all times. Malaysians might be barred from travelling internationally if the problem exists and persists. – NST
