Health ministry to probe empty vaccine syringe claim

LARUT: The health ministry is investigating a claim that a Covid-19 vaccine recipient was injected with an empty syringe.

Deputy health minister Dr Noor Azmi Ghazali said the ministry viewed the matter seriously and an in-depth investigation would be carried out because issues or problems related to vaccination were not something that could be taken lightly at this time.

“This is not the time to joke around, I strongly disagree and deeply regret this bad news.

“Apart from worrying about the increase and spread in Covid-19 cases, we are also worried about the spread of fake news. We have to verify,” he told a press conference after visiting the Selama Vaccination Centre today.

A video purportedly showing a man being injected with an empty syringe went viral on social media recently.
