Muhyiddin did ‘umrah’ in March of last year despite not being fully vaccinated

Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s aide said the former prime minister did “umrah” in March 2021 without a complete Covid-19 or meningococcal meningitis (MM) vaccine because they were not necessary at the time.

Mohd Naim Mahmod said in a statement that all of the delegates at the time, including the former prime minister, had received their first dose of Covid-19 vaccination before going for Saudi Arabia and their second dosage after coming home.

They were not immunized against MM since neither the Malaysian nor the Saudi governments made it compulsory.

According to him, neither the Malaysian nor the Saudi Arabian governments imposed strict requirements on the injection of the Covid-19 vaccine or other vaccinations by any visitor seeking to visit Saudi Arabia at the time.

Muhyiddin’s formal working visit was also subjected to stringent standard operating procedures, including PCR testing before, during, and after the visit, according to him
