The Health Ministry has focused on taking legal action against those who deny the reception of the booster dose against Covid-19. Accordingly, legal advice has already been obtained from the Attorney General in this regard, revealed Dr. Anwar Hamdani, Coordinator for Covid-19 in the Ministry.
Pointing out that some countries are making vaccination compulsory and penalising those who refuse, Dr. Hamdani added that such measures indicate the importance of being administered with the booster dose against the virus.
He added that legal advice has been sought to encourage the public to collect their dose and that the Ministry does not wish to embarrass the public by penalising them. Law would help make the vaccination process a success, Hamdani suggested.
He urged the public to consider the option in the event that vaccination backed by legal actions is carried out to protect the people.
