Today, I met with teachers who have yet to be been vaccinated at Bangunan Sultan Ibrahim, Bukit Timbalan together with Johor State Secretary YB Dato’ Haji Azmi Bin Rohani, Johor Health Director YB Dato’ Dr. Aman bin Rabu, Johor Deputy State Secretary (Management) YB Dato’ Haji Mohd Noh bin Ibrahim, Johor Mufti Sohibus Samahah YB Dato’ Haji Yahya bin Ahmad (virtually) and Johor Deputy Mufti Sohibus Samahah YB Dato’ Haji Ahmad Faisal bin Mohamed.

I heard the teachers’ explanations on issues faced by them. Of the 779 teachers who initially rejected the vaccine, only 396 rejected it due to doubts about the vaccine. The remainder decided to postpone it for now due to allergies, pregnancies or health conditions. There were some teachers who have now agreed to register to take the vaccine.

During the meeting, I also shared information regarding the vaccination programme in Johor and the latest Covid-19 pandemic situation in Johor.

I hope the teachers realise their responsibilities in always prioritising the development of model citizens by setting good examples and hope they would take the vaccine before schools reopen to ensure the rakyat’s health and well-being.
