The Health Ministry is the sole distributor of Covid-19 vaccines and any sort of selling or distribution of the vaccine through other mediums are not allowed.
In a tweet shared recently, the Ministry said that vaccines that appear on online market stores might be fake or come from incredulous sources.

Penjualan atau pembekalan vaksin melalui mana-mana medium lain adalah tidak dibenarkan sama sekali.

It was reported previously that the vaccine was made available online, which alarmed both the Ministry and also Shopee, an e-commerce platform who denied that the ad was featured before.
Based on the picture which went viral, the vaccine was priced at around RM60 per vial.
Meanwhile, Health Director-General Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham in a press conference previously told the public to stay clear of counterfeit vaccines being sold on the market.
The Ministry later tweeted that the ad was a fake.
