Following all the drama about her vaccination recently, Ifa Raziah has set the record straight that she doesn’t regret rejecting the Sinovac vaccine – which has now been approved by the Saudi Arabian government to enter the country to perform haj and umrah to Mecca.
In case you missed the news, the local celeb was supposed to receive the Sinovac vaccine at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Center (MITEC), last Saturday. However, she ended up cancelling her appointment at the very last minute, much to the chagrin of netizens.
Regardless, the 45-year-old said she’s grateful with the recent announcement made by the Religious Affairs Minister, Dr. Zulkifli Al-Bakri in regards to the vaccine’s status. “Praise be to God, the Sinovac vaccine has been given the green light by the Saudi government. My husband and children also took the Sinovac vaccine. The news was announced yesterday,” Ifa told Harian Metro.
After facing massive criticism from the public, the “Ser Ser Ser” singer then clarified that she had applied for the Pfizer vaccine due to her ongoing health problems. According to Ifa, she had plans to travel to Singapore for business purposes, in addition for plans to perform the pilgrimage.
“You want proof that I’m allergic to certain medicines, here, I’ve provided the prescribed letter from the doctor for you guys to see for yourselves. They said that I was lying. But now, I’m sharing this to let people know that I’m not a liar. But other artists might be,” Ifa dished.
Speaking of fellow artists, Ifa also divulged that she felt disappointed with a few celebs who had publicly slammed her over the recent situation. The “Spa Q” actress expressed, “If they are artists and they know who I am, I think it is better for them to ask me personally rather than bad mouth me.”
“As fellow artists, we should take care of each other’s well-being, ask about their health first instead of bashing and inciting netizens. How can netizens respect them as artists, when some of them often look down upon other people?” Ifa questioned.
