The Malaysian Health Ministry (MOH) might be making Covid-19 vaccinations compulsory for all citizens, once it’s found that is…

Health Director-General Datuk Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah said that studies are still being conducted around the world to find a credible vaccine for the Covid-19 coronavirus and this process could take at least a year before one could be rolled out.

The DG explains that the ministry would study the side effect of any identified Covid-19 vaccine before it decides to make the public take it.

Previously, MOH revealed that Malaysia may be a candidate testing ground for a Covid-19 vaccine that’s being made in China.

At the moment there is still no approved vaccines or medication for Covid-19.

Scientists around the world have been working hard at finding a vaccine for the coronavirus pandemic with experts saying that it might take years, even decades, to successfully produce and distribute.
