GEORGE TOWN: Vaccine minister Khairy Jamaluddin today said state governments are free to buy vaccines from companies yet to be engaged by Putrajaya.

He said the states are free to negotiate with drug makers Moderna and Sinopharm, whose vaccines have been approved by the World Health Organization.

At a press conference here, Khairy said that as long as the vaccines have been given the green light by the National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency, the states are free to procure them.

He also revealed that Malaysia has administered 3.5 million full doses to date, beating countries such as Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines.
