On May 8, the proposal on mandatory immunisation will be tabled with the Ministry of Health’s steering committee. This is to be done before it is presented to the cabinet.

Opinions from various parties, including government agencies, private sectors and non-governmental organisations (NGOs), and associations were sought in forming this proposal, said Health Minister Dr Dzulkefly.

Health Minister Dzulkefly Ahmad said that the views of various parties, including government agencies, the private sector, non-governmental agencies (NGOs) and association were also sought in forming the proposal.

“I will first chair and discuss it (at a pre-cabinet meeting) and based on the outcome, we will raise the matter in the cabinet,” he told reporters after officiating the national-level Immunisation Day celebration at Taman Tasik Cempaka in Bangi.
