The clip, originally from a joint press conference on 17 March, was posted by a netizen on 22 July. It has since gone viral with over 950,000 views and more than 8,000 retweets at the time of the writing.
During the announcement at the time, Dr Adham Baba was seen promoting what appears to be a sample of how the vaccine badge would look with one side containing a QR code for authentication.
“The badge, which has the bearer’s personal details such as their name and MyKad, certifies that he or she is vaccinated,” Dr Adham Baba was reported as saying by New Straits Times.
“It has a security code, so it can’t be duplicated and would be distributed by the millions for future use,” he said, adding that a vaccine certificate will also be released on the MySejahtera app.
