PUTRAJAYA: Khairy Jamaluddin has defended the delay in Malaysia’s procurement of the Covid-19 vaccines, after Singapore became the first country in Asia to receive delivery of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines on Monday.

Malaysia’s first batch of doses are expected to arrive by next February, with Khairy, the science, technology and innovation minister, saying the delay was down to cost.
