KUALA LUMPUR, March 17 — A Covid-19 vaccine badge will be given to all those who complete vaccination with two doses, Health Minister Dr Adham Baba said today.
From today onwards, individuals who have received their first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine will be starting to receive their second dose of the vaccine, 21 days apart.
In a joint press conference with de facto law minister Takiyuddin Hassan on Covid-19 standard operating procedure (SOPs) fines, Dr Adham announced that those who receive their second dose from today onwards will be getting a unique vaccine badge.
“We will release not just the vaccine certificate on the MySejahtera application that can be downloaded for those who got the second dose, but we will also give Covid vaccination bage,” Dr Adham said.
“This card is called a badge and can be used for us to prove that we have gotten the vaccine. This card cannot be copied because it has a certain security code,” the health minister added.
Malaysia is currently vaccinating frontline workers in the first phase of the national Covid-19 vaccination programme. A total of 346,508 people have already received at least one dose of the vaccine. Labuan completed vaccinating all its 2,342 frontliners with the first dose on March 12, the first territory in the country to do so.
