Mohon pandangan DGHisham Khairykj Sangat sedih dgn cara KKM handle isu tindak balas booster ke atas penerima. Sampai bila KKM & kerajaan nak menafikan kesan negatif booster ke atas penerima.. 😥😥

DGHisham To boost people’s confident, why not yr dept arrange LIVE booster injection to all MP at parliament’s lobby ? DGHisham stop mandating boosters for everyone. How many need to get injured before KKM takes action ? 896 is still lives of people.

On AEFI cases involving Kajang Prison inmates, Dr Noor Hisham said 13 of the 18 reports received had been investigated and presented at the Covid-19 Vaccine Special Pharmacovigilance Committee (JFK) meeting on Jan 12. "Five more reports, including those involving deaths, are still under investigation ... and as a result of JFK's assessment based on the investigation report received, 10 of the cases were not due to the vaccine received by the prisoners. "As for three more reports, adverse effects were only a possibility due to the vaccine,” he said. Meanwhile, Khairy said each AEFI report went through a detailed process to enable the Health Ministry to conduct investigations including postmortem and clinical views before confirming whether the case was due to vaccines or otherwise. Asked about the public's concern over booster shots which have been linked to several deaths viralled on social media, Khairy said the Health Ministry will be releasing all AEFI data related to booster doses. While saying that most of the viral news had nothing to do with vaccination, he said the ministry would conduct thorough investigations, especially cases involving deaths. - Bernama Article type: metered
