Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said illegal immigrants in the country will also be vaccinated in Phase 4 of the Covid-19 vaccination programme, as they are already in the community and may spread the virus to Malaysians.

He said this in response to questions from the media during an online engagement session hosted by the Health Ministry on Thursday (Feb 18).
