Malaysia is the latest country in Southeast Asia to start its COVID-19 vaccination drive, with Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin the first to receive a shot.
Earlier, Vietnam received more than 100,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine, ahead of its planned roll-out next month.
Both countries have been praised for being among the best performers in Southeast Asia for containing the virus, while others – like Indonesia and the Philippines – have struggled.
