Can Malaysia Achieve Herd Immunity?

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has outlined a national vaccination program for COVID-19 that aims to get everyone eligible vaccinated by February 2022. Is this timeline feasible or is it maybe not ambitious enough?

The Morning Run speaks to public health policy specialist Dr Khor Swee Kheng on this, what Malaysia needs to learn from other countries, and the key challenges in the vaccine rollout.
