Stern action needs to be taken against those who refuse to be vaccinated against Covid-19 without proper reasons as the government considers mandatory vaccinations at this crucial period during the country’s recovery.
National Recovery Council (MPN) chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said although those who refused vaccinations were only between five and 10 per cent, their attitude could affect a larger segment of the public as well as risk becoming Covid-19 virus carriers.
“If they refuse to be vaccinated, they can’t use MySejahtera because you will only be given a vaccination certificate after being vaccinated.
“Wherever we go, even mosques, we are required to scan. In restaurants, we need to scan, coffeeshops also we’ll need to scan, so if they don’t have certificates, naturally it will hamper their right to facilities, whether it’s the right to go to a restaurant, mosque or a hotel. If you want to eat anywhere, using (MySejahtera) is becoming a practice in Malaysia,” he told reporters after meeting local leaders at the Bukit Gambir multipurpose hall here today.
