KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysia's move to start inoculating workers in key economic sectors against Covid-19 before the completion of vaccinations for senior citizens and front-liners has drawn criticisms from several opposition politicians.

Mr Khairy Jamaluddin, the national coordinating minister for immunisation, said on Monday (June 14) that the government will begin vaccinating industry workers from Wednesday, as part of measures to reduce infections in workplaces that continue to dominate the number of new clusters.

Vaccine centres will be opened for the manufacturing, construction, plantation, retail and hospitality sectors.
