KUALA TERENGGANU, Aug 12 — The government will announce the action that will be taken against anti-vaccine groups either this month or next month, said Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
He said it was to ensure that the country could achieve herd immunity to curb the spread of Covid-19 transmissions.
“We will study and conduct some research about this (anti-vaccine) group. We need to know the background, whether most of them are so sick that they are afraid to take the vaccine or they don’t want to take the vaccine because they don’t believe (in it).
“So, when we have analysed if the percentage is very small, it is not worrying but if it is big, we have to find a way, whether to (make it) mandatory under the existing legal provisions. It will be decided by the government within this month or next month,” he said.
He spoke to reporters after visiting the vaccination centre (PPV) at Taman Tamadun Islam here today. — Bernama
