Offer vitamin C injection services and be prepared to be struck off, Health Ministry warns doctors

"If found guilty, we can take action under the MMC, for example, disciplinary action, and as a last resort, we will strike them off from the medical register," he said.

He said this when asked to comment on the Vitamin C injection service being offered through social media such as Facebook and Instagram, which was becoming increasingly common.

In Malaysia, most people who obtain such injection services are those who are obsessed with beauty, especially those want to have whiter skin even though it is quite expensive
