The limited freedom is solely for individuals who refuse to get the COVID-19 vaccine. The government did not make it hard for them (anti-vaccine groups), but it was their choice that made it difficult for them, they refused to listen to scientific arguments and this has resulted in them not being able to enjoy the freedom like the people who have been vaccinated. – Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin

Anti-Vaxxers To be Ostracized And Denied Freedom – Khairy

According to the Dewan Negara today, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has adopted the position of not allowing anti-vaccine groups to enjoy certain freedoms afforded to fully vaccinated people.

According to Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin, the limited freedom is solely for individuals who refuse to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

He said that two categories should be distinguished: those who were unable to get vaccines due to medical issues and those who refused to be vaccinated (despite being eligible).

“The government did not make it hard for them (anti-vaccine groups), but it was their choice that made it difficult for them, they refused to listen to scientific arguments and this has resulted in them not being able to enjoy the freedom like the people who have been vaccinated.”

“We will continue with this approach. I encourage restrictions at sector level like the civil service, private sector and others before we look at a holistic approach like making it legally mandatory for the people to be vaccinated," Khairy said in a statement.

As a result, Khairy believed that the restrictions would be more practical than enforcing vaccinations on the group.

“More than 95 per cent of the Malaysian adult population has at least received the first dose (of the vaccine), meaning the number who refuse to receive the vaccine is very small, however we will continue to persuade them to get vaccinated," he added.

Meanwhile, Khairy claimed there was no need for a new vaccination card for the Orang Asli population since their current vaccination card verified they were fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
