MRCS to ensure migrant workers, refugees not left behind in vaccination

Free Malaysia Today, Malaysia, 11 November 2021 - The Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS) will take stock of the number of documented and undocumented migrant workers and refugees who are yet to be vaccinated at the end of the year, its spokesman said.

MRCS board member Suhana Sidik said it would use various networks to gather this information before presenting it to the government, adding that it has been pushing for as many of them as possible to be fully vaccinated by the end of the year.

She said Malaysia is very close to fully vaccinating all adult undocumented and documented migrants and refugees living here, adding that their final assessment will show the actual figures.

“Most of them were taken care of by the health ministry at its vaccination centres, before we joined in to help speed up the process and complete it by the end of the year,” she said.

“We are working very closely with NGOs and community leaders to organise migrant and refugee communities to come to vaccination centres every day of the week.”.

MRCS is currently doing this in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Sabah, Penang, Pahang, Kelantan and Terengganu.
