Malaysia is planning to vaccinate overseas visitors in an effort to combat Polio.
Citing the Ministry of Health Director General of Malaysia Noor Hisham Abdullah, the state news agency of Bernama, reported that Malaysia will vaccinate overseas visitors in the country in an effort to prevent the spreading of this infectious disease.
Mr. Noor Hisham declared that the ministry will seek cooperation from UNICEF to get subsidized vaccine supplies and plans to work with the Philippines to secure less expensive treatments.
Raising concerns about their vaccination status, according to the report, about 20% to 30% of overseas visitors, especially in the Borneo island states of Sabah and Sarawak, enter the country without screening.
Malaysia confirmed last week its first case of polio in almost three decades, sparking fears that disease is spreading across the region after the Philippines declared an epidemic in September.
