COVID vaccine prices at private facilities not controlled by govt
Jun 01, 2022
The government does not control the price of COVID-19 vaccines administered by private health facilities.
The Health Ministry says the cost of vaccination, including consultancy charges, depends entirely on the respective facility.
This, as parents who plan to get their kids aged 5 to 11 vaccinated must now pay a certain fee, following the end of the PICKids program yesterday.
Pejuang to only focus on victory in GE15

Malaysia needs an independent climate change committee
Health experts say Malaysia needs to establish an independent committee on climate change, to monitor and report annual carbon dioxide emissions.
They say such findings can keep track of the country’s progress in becoming a carbon-neutral nation by 2050.
They are concerned that even though there are talks of climate change, many are seemingly unbothered by the serious issue.
As such, they hope the government will step up its efforts to educate the public on the effects of climate change.
