KOTA TINGGI: Malaysia is capabile of producing Covid-19 vaccine as the country has many scientists expert in this field, the nealy appointed Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry (Mosti) Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba said.

“The production of the first vaccine in the country is very important. We must move forward and be confident because we have scientists who can be mobilised to make a breakthrough in innovation and scientific discoveries,” he told reporters at an event yesterday.

However, the Tenggara MP added that he planned to discuss the matter with other countries that have successfully produced the Covid-19 vaccine, including China, India and Thailand.

“I welcome the announcement by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob that Mosti will focus on research and development to produce a Covid-19 vaccine.
 
“One of the early signs that we can produce our own vaccines is by creating fill-and-finish factories. The vaccine that we will produce must be bottled, so the fill-and-finish technology is already available but it needs to be evaluated by the National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Divisio,” he said.
