A doctor in Terengganu was caught red-handed selling fake Covid-19 vaccination certificates, accumulating sales up to RM1 million.

The private clinic located in Marang was raided by law enforcement officers after investigations showed around 1,900 people, from within the state and outside, were recipients of the certificate.

The recipients were required to pay a minimum of RM400 and a maximum of RM600, a significant price hike compared to the actual price of RM300.

The public is now concerned that the vaccination programme in the country has been jeopardised as other doctors might be offering similar scandalous services.

“This person jeopardised the reputation of our vaccination programme and raises suspicion towards our vaccination certificate in the country and abroad,” said Aileen How.

The hope is not the Ministry of Health and the current Cabinet will ensure that all necessary laws are used to raise the appropriate punishment.

Eugene Lim is ashamed that a medical expert would stain the name of doctors with his ‘cynical’ act.

He said, “What was he thinking? Did he think he could get away with it?”

Being a doctor, he should be professional but he acted like a conman which Eugene deems as pathetic.

Terengganu Police Chief, Datuk Rohaimi Md Isa is now working with the MySejahtera team to track down the 1,900 recipients to check their accounts.
