THE Ministry of Health and Medical Services says it is looking into allegations that certain health workers have been selling vaccination cards to individuals and companies.

Permanent Secretary for Ministry of Health Pauline McNeil says if the allegations can be ascertained, they will launch an investigation into the matter.

“We are aware of some practices at the Ministry and we are trying to establish the facts and collect evidences on the matter,” McNeil told reporters yesterday.

“If the facts can be established, an investigation will be launched into this matter,” she added.

Attorney General John Muria Junior said if anyone have evidences on the illegal sale of the vaccination cards, they should come forward the provide the evidence.

He said authorities cannot do much if people are protecting those involved in the alleged sale.

“Any action to be taken must be based on evidence,” Muria added.
