Claims of M’sian vaccination certs being rejected by Hong Kong are true or false news ?
False claims of vaccination certificates of Malaysian travellers being rejected by Hong Kong authorities are being circulated via messaging apps and social media.
A check on the official website of Hong Kong’s Department of Health shows a list of all the vaccines currently being administered under Malaysia’s National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (PICK) with the recommended doses as being recognised for specific purposes by its government.
The vaccines listed are Pfizer-BioNTech, Sinovac, Oxford AstraZeneca, Janssen, Sinopharm and Sputnik V.
It also notes that Malaysia – along with 27 other countries – is under Group B of high-risk specified places which require unvaccinated Hong Kong residents who have stayed in.
