There's a slight snag, though - some overtly pandai people are allegedly queue jumping!
A number of Malaysians have been sharing incidents of queue jumpers including on social media and the cases are quite worrying.
Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Khairy Jamaluddin has however, assured that his team are on it.
My team has been monitoring whistleblowers’ comments on social media about vaccine queue jumping. I share it immediately with Dato’ Dr Chong DDG @KKMPutrajaya, who is with me in the task force, to investigate. We take every expose seriously. Vaccine equity is important.— Khairy Jamaluddin ???

"My team has been monitoring whistleblowers’ comments on social media about vaccine queue jumping. I share it immediately with Dato’ Dr Chong DDG, who is with me in the task force, to investigate. We take every expose seriously. Vaccine equity is important," tweeted Khairy.
Khairy, who is the coordinating minister for the National COVID-19 Immunisation programme, later added that elected representative were part of the first phase but certain VVIPs that were not elected reps were also trying to get on the list.
"For elected representives, I have also asked that the vaccines be given out in stages. There are some states that have given all their excos the vaccines at one go. Not good," he tweeted.
To be clear, wakil rakyat memang ada dalam fasa pertama. Cuma sekarang ini ‘VVIP’ bukan wakil rakyat pun nak masuk senarai. Tak boleh. Dan untuk wakil rakyat, saya juga minta ambil secara berperingkat. Ada negeri bagi semua Exco one shot. Not good. https://t.co/HOdttUVwZ6— Khairy Jamaluddin ??? (@Khairykj) February 28, 2021
Expose queue jumpers
Khairy later added that those who had information on queue jumpers could also email him directly at [email protected].
The series of tweets by the minister was done in response to allegations of queue jumping by Twitter user Dr Rafidah Abdullah.— Dr. Rafidah Abdullah (@rafidah72) February 28, 2021
Received many messages such as this. We need to ensure distributive justice & instill trust to our national immunisation programme.
Perhaps MOSTI YB @Khairykj can consider having an independent channel for people to file in complaints & ensure repercussions for queue jumpers. pic.twitter.com/AbaGGcbqYf
So, if you suspect or heard of some VVVVVVVVVVIP trying to jump queue when it comes to COVID-19 vaccines, you know what to do.
As for you queue jumpers, shame on you!
Your actions are extremely selfish as those vaccines are meant for actual frontliners i.e. the people out there risking their lives for yours!
