Private doctors in the dark about booster shots, says group
PETALING JAYA: Private general practitioners (GP) are still in the dark about their participation in the rollout of booster shots and third vaccine doses.
Many of these clinic doctors have not received any details about the programme, which officially began yesterday, from state health departments.
