Kedah among states recording highest number of vaccine rejection cases

ALOR SETAR, Kedah is one of the states to record the highest number of vaccine rejection cases in the country with 139 cases reported last year compared to 133 cases in 2017.

State Health director Datuk Dr Norhizan Ismail said in 2016, 176 vaccine rejection cases were recorded.

Among the reasons for vaccine rejection in Kedah is the doubt cast on the status of the vaccine whether halal or non-halal and doubts about the content of the vaccine being not safe.
