To protect children’s health and safety, the health authority prohibited immunization at homes.

Dr. Cam warned that as per the current regulations, medical clinics are not allowed to vaccinate at home, accordingly, people should not believe in a person who administer vaccine at home in the name of medical workers and vaccination at home is illegal.

Additionally, Dr. Cam advised parents to take their kids to legal medical facilities for vaccination.
