The health ministry has detected the sale of vaccination certificates in the form of physical cards on an online platform in the northern part of the country.

Its deputy minister Dr Noor Azmi Ghazali said the ministry’s Inspectorate and Legal Unit would take action against the party involved, adding that a police report had been lodged over the matter.

“We do not allow the sale of vaccination certificates because there will be individuals who claim they have already received two doses of Covid-19 vaccine.

“The ministry never made any procurement to issue the vaccination cards. If they want to dine in at eateries or cross districts, they need to show the digital certificate on the MySejahtera application or the vaccination card issued by the health ministry,” he told reporters after visiting the public vaccination centre at the Social Welfare Department Complex in Gopeng today.

Yesterday, Sultanah Bahiyah Hospital Obstetrics and Gynecology Department head Dr Mohd Rushdan Noor had revealed in a Facebook post that Covid-19 vaccination certificates were being sold online for RM15 each.
