The Malaysian Medical Association (MMA) wants the authorities to go all out in their investigations and weed out all those involved in the issuing of fake vaccination certificates with no jabs being given.
We want all those who are involved to be brought to book to face the full force of the law. The heaviest punishments should be meted out, as it is a serious offence which could put countless lives in danger.
It is shocking that more than 5,000 vaccination certificates were issued by a clinic located in Gombak to individuals without giving vaccination.
We will not allow a few black sheep to tarnish the good name and reputation of the profession. MMA will support the sternest action taken against any medical practitioner found to be involved in such irresponsible and criminal acts.
For registered practitioners, their licences to practise can be revoked by the Malaysian Medical Council. The Private Facility Enforcement Unit at the Ministry of Health should also take other stern measures, such as immediate closure of their premises and charge those found to be involved in court.
Just yesterday, MMA received a complaint from an individual on fake vaccination certificates, and we will be lodging a police report. The public may also email complaints to [email protected].
