Astrazeneca: Malaysia will request explanation from EU  

A meeting will be held with EU representatives in Malaysia in regards to the claim that the European Union (EU) COVID-19 Digital Certificate only recognizes AstraZeneca (AZ) vaccines approved by the European Medical Agency (EMA)

Coordinating Minister of the National COVID-19 Immunization Program (PICK) Khairy Jamaluddin said this meeting is to get explanation for this matter

Khairy said, in Malaysia, if a vaccine is recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO), then other countries need to give recognition to the recipient who received the vaccine.

“We also hope there is no discrimination in terms of which factory the vaccine comes because the AstraZeneca factory uses the same formula, whether the factory is in Europe, India, South Korea or Thailand.

“So for me, to segregate a particular factory seems unfair. However, we will continue to seek clarification from the EU through its representative in Malaysia, “he told reporters after visiting the mega Vaccination Center (PPV) at the Mines International Convention and Exhibition Center (MIECC), Seri Kembangan, today.

According to Codeblue, AstraZeneca vaccine offered in Malaysia is not recognized by the EU Digital COVID Certificate.

It is understood that the AstraZeneca vaccine offered in Malaysia is produced by SK Bioscience from South Korea and Siam Bioscience from Thailand.

In fact, the AstraZeneca vaccine that was recently shipped by Japan to Malaysia was also reported not to have received confirmation from the EMA.

Meanwhile, the AstraZeneca vaccine (Vaxzevria brand) and produced by the European Union, the United States, Britain, the Netherlands and China has successfully obtained European Medicines Agency (EMA) approval.
