PUTRAJAYA: The guidelines for illegal immigrants and refugees to receive Covid-19 vaccine shots have been approved, said National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (PICK) Coordinating Minister Khairy Jamaluddin (pic)

He said the guidelines have been approved by the Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) to enable illegal immigrants and refugees to be present at vaccination centres (PPV) for vaccination and the details on the matter would be announced later.

In a virtual interview with the media recently, Khairy said non-governmental organisations such as the Red Crescent would be involved in the vaccination exercise for refugees and illegal immigrants.

“Illegal immigrants and refugees would be more comfortable if the PPV is handled by NGO which have been given health services to this group. 

“In this way, they would not be afraid to go to the PPV for vaccination,” he said. 

Khairy, who hoped the guidelines would encourage illegal immigrants and refugees to come forward for their Covid-19 vaccine shots, said: 

“Do not be afraid to go to the PPV for vaccination, this is important because they at risk and also put others at risk. No one is safe until everyone is safe,” he said.
