The Malaysian Armed Forces will be directed to work closer with MOH to ensure people complete their vaccinations soon, so as to reach the country's target of 90% of adults vaccinated during this period.

The Malaysian Government expects permission for inter-state travel to be granted in three weeks' time, Senior Minister for Defense, Hishammuddin Hussein has shared.

The minister said measures will be taken to speed up the vaccination rate among adults, and that the Malaysian Armed Forces (ATM) will be directed to work closer with the Ministry of Health (MOH) to ensure people complete their vaccinations soon, so as to reach the country's target of 90% of adults vaccinated in that period.

Among immediate action to be taken, the ATM will be mobilising more Combat Medic Vaccination Teams (CMVT) to help the MOH vaccinate communities in deeper areas.

The ATM has also been directed to expand the drive-through vaccination programme for the public, Senior Minister Hishammudin added.

Per the MOH's latest update on 27 September, 6.45am, 83.7% of Malaysia's adult population has been fully vaccinated, while 93.7% have completed at least one dose of vaccine.
