NewsKKM urge Malaysians not to buy Forge Vaccination Certificate online

Yesterday (10 August), the Ministry of Health (KKM) had urge Malaysians to not purchase the forged vaccination certificate from the Internet as the Ministry only recognises the digital certificate on the MySejahtera app or the white card issued by them once the vaccination process is completed.

In addition, KKM warns to take stern action against those who attempted to forge the digital Covid-19 vaccination certificate in the MySejahtera application.

According to Bernama, Deputy Minister Dr Noor Azmi Ghazali said KKM views this issue seriously and will take action on the matter. He added that KKM’s enforcement division is currently working with other authorities to investigate on this issue.

Meanwhile, Kelantan Police Chief, Shafien Mama also reminded the public to not abuse the SOP relaxation on interstate and inter-district travel restrictions by producing fake vaccination certificates.

Noor Azmi added that he will bring up the issue to the Ministry’s special meeting soon to discuss the ways to address the matter.

“People just need to show their certificate (on the MySejahtera app) on their mobile phones or the white card if they are stopped at roadblocks or being asked to show proof at eateries.”

“Some folks have even laminated the white card.” he said, reported by The Star.

Responding to the claims of the low vaccination rate in Perak, Noor Azmi commented that as of 8 August, 34.4% of the population or 864,249 individuals in the state were given their first dose of Covid-19 vaccine while 21.9% or 549,262 individuals had received both doses.

As for the Kerian district alone, a total of 57,841 individuals (29.8%) had received their first vaccine jab while 40,716 individuals (21%) had completed their vaccinations.

Meanwhile, he said that some 1,500 teachers, support staff, canteen operators and school bus operators were given their Covid-19 vaccinations so as to prepare for the school reopening in September.
