Claims of M'sian vaccination certs being rejected by Hong Kong are false

False claims of vaccination certificates of Malaysian travellers being rejected by Hong Kong authorities are being circulated via messaging apps and social media.
A check on the official website of Hong Kong's Department of Health shows a list of all the vaccines currently being administered under Malaysia's National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (PICK) with the recommended doses as being recognised for specific purposes by its government.

The vaccines listed are Pfizer-BioNTech, Sinovac, Oxford AstraZeneca, Janssen, Sinopharm and Sputnik V.

It also notes that Malaysia - along with 27 other countries - is under Group B of high-risk specified places which require unvaccinated Hong Kong residents who have stayed in any of the countries to undergo compulsory quarantine for 21 days and take four Covid-19 tests during quarantine.

For vaccinated Hong Kong travellers, they are required to undergo 14 days of compulsory quarantine at a designated hotel and take three Covid-19 tests during the period.
