Govt’s stand on vaccine hesitant only to keep situation from getting worse: Hisham

KUALA LUMPUR – The government’s stand in taking action against those who refuse to be vaccinated against Covid-19 is not to persecute them but to prevent greater harm, said Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein.

“As stated by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, the government is not trying to discriminate against or targeting any party, but in our efforts to combat the pandemic, it is important for the government not to allow the situation to worsen.

“So, what the government is doing is meant to protect the lives of the people so that they can protect the lives of others,” he told a special media conference at Wisma Pertahanan here today.

If the vaccine are safe why need to give consent form to prevent legal action against MOH & Pirate 🏴‍☠️ govt should the vaccinated rakyat developed severe side effects that results in permanent disability or death then!? Since the vaccinated rakyat is safe and secured why scare of the unvaccinated rakyat who is more or less than 10% now!? It’s the unvaccinated rakyat who is more scared of the vaccinated rakyat who is carrying the virus around freely without any signs of symptoms of covid19 infections who had happily signed your forced consent form w/o knowing the legal implications later!? Now u say need third booster jab as the given vaccines are not effective! Are you telling lies or telling then rakyat later that u need booster shots yearly next to stay safe sooner on!?! Do away the consent form, then the rakyat will have better trust on the vaccines used! Be fair & just to the rakyat and lie not anymore!

There must have some restrictions on those who refuses to get vaccinated. This is to protect 90% of the people instead of compromising the 10%
