Experts back ‘Co-vid 19 Passport’ but want more info: STAR 22 February 2021

Conferences

 

Association of Private Hospitals Malaysia’s president Datuk Dr Kuljit Singh agreed that it was a good idea, but called for more time to evaluate the possibility of any discrimination.

The vaccine passport will allow us to know who has been vaccinated and who hasn’t. It will be easier too for private hospitals to know the vaccination status before commencing treatment for an individual although we will still treat all patients with or without vaccination, but the pre-treatment process may differ. We will wait for the guidelines, ” he said.

He said everyone should get vaccinated as the risk of side effects of the vaccine was negligible when compared to the long-term complications from Covid-19 infection.
