According to Senior Minister Dato Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, Malaysians may soon be able to interstate travel after 90% of the adult population in the country have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19. He added that the permission to interstate travel is expected to be finalised within 3 weeks.
To speed up the vaccination rate, the Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) were directed to deploy more Combat Medic Vaccination Teams (CMVT) to remote areas, apart from expanding the drive-through vaccination programme implemented by the Defence Ministry.
“InsyaAllah, the much-awaited permission for interstate travel will be announced soon. We hope the plans we have worked out with MoH will come to fruition in these three weeks. We will unveil the interstate SOP before announcing the permission for interstate travel, and it will be scrutinised at the Special Committee on Pandemic (Management) meeting chaired by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob next week,” the Minister of Defense said.
As of 25 Spetember 2021, 83.1% of the country's adult population and 59.7% of the total population in Malaysia has completed their vaccination.
