Mar 26, 2022
The Prime Minister is hopeful that the reopening of the land border between Malaysia and Thailand will boost our economy’s revival.
Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob says two entry points will be reopened on April 1st, namely Wang Kelian, Perlis, and Bukit Kayu Hitam, Kedah.
The PM also hopes that the SOPs for the Malaysia-Thailand reopening, will be similar to the ones implemented at the Malaysia-Singapore border in Johor…
He adds that the Health Ministry has been tasked to discuss with Thai authorities to reopen the border at Padang Besar, Perlis, and other entry points in the north.
No legal action against un-boosted Sinovac recipients
Sinovac vaccine recipients who refuse to take the COVID-19 booster shot will not face any legal action.
The Health Minister says its because it is no mandatory to take the jab under the law.
However, such recipients who are not boosted will lose their fully vaccinated status on April 1st.
As such, they will be barred from enjoying privileges given only to fully immunised individuals.
Senior citizens offered home booster vaccinations
Senior citizens can soon receive their COVID-19 booster shot at home.
ProtectHealth says the service will be offered to those who are unable to get the jab at vaccination centres due to logistical issues.
Registration for the service can be made through its hotline starting Monday.
Recipients can also register via Protect Health’s website, as well as on MySejahtera.
