The Private Medical Practitioners Association (PMPA) is up at arms against the government’s decision to only allow doctors in public hospitals to be able to determine whether a patient can be vaccinated or not. This decision was announced by the Minister of Health on June 3.

As from June 21, a regulation issued by the Ministry of Health ordered that in order to have access to public and private health centers as well as educational institutions, the public must present a vaccination card.

For those who have not had the vaccine, they will need to present a medical certificate, signed only by doctors from the public hospitals.

This document must certify that a person cannot take an anti-COVID-19 vaccine. The vice-president of the Private Medical Practionners Association, Dr Isshaq Jowahir, described the decision as “a discrimination against doctors of the private sector.”
