Khairy tells why he’s not taking Pfizer jab

The minister in charge of vaccine procurement is not among the key political leaders and individuals who have been administered the Pfizer vaccine.

Khairy Jamaluddin is not taking the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine, which was the first to arrive in Malaysia and is currently being given to medical frontliners and government leaders under the first phase of the national vaccination programme.

Instead, the science, technology and innovation minister who is in charge of Putrajaya’s billion-ringgit vaccine procurement, said he would wait for other Covid-19 vaccine brands.

He said with key leaders including health director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah receiving the Pfizer vaccine, there is more confidence among members of the public to sign up for vaccination.

But he said there could be doubts about the efficacy of other brands to be rolled out.

“So I have decided to take the next approved vaccine. I will be the first person to take whatever vaccine is approved next.

“I will not take the Pfizer vaccine,” he told reporters after witnessing the arrival of the CoronaVac vaccine from China at KLIA today.

    Why not take each and every brand we import? Be a megajaguh or are you waiting for a better offer? What about royalty? Shouldn’t they be worth protecting first? I think anyone with a bodyguard or entourage should be at the head of the queue.
