While vaccination is voluntarily now, Muhyiddin mentioned if majority of the nation has taken the vaccine, it would then act as a health passport. Those who refuse inoculation could face restraints in moving around or engaging in businesses in the future.

So if you’re frontliner, you might be thinking where could you go to get vaccinated? Ministry of Health Malaysia (KKM) has set up 605 vaccine distribution points across the nation. Take a look at the map below:
