visited the Vaccine Storage Center at Permai Hospital, Johor Bahru today (Wednesday, 14 July 2021) to inspect the distribution of Covid-19 vaccines to vaccination centers (PPV) in Johor. During the visit, I also had a meeting with Health and Environment EXCO YB Vidyananthan A/L Ramanadhan, Tourism, Youth and Sports EXCO YB Dato’ Onn Hafiz bin Ghazi and Johor Deputy State Secretary YB Dato’ Haji Mohd Noh bin Ibrahim.

I have decreed that the vaccination programmes throughout Johor be accelerated to achieve herd immunity as soon as possible. At the same time, I advised that the logistical process of vaccine distribution to the PPVs be expedited and that the supply of vaccines at PPVs must be sufficient as well as the need to have an adequate number of PPVs to cover the entire state of Johor.

I also witnessed the receiving of the Pfizer vaccine supply that would be distributed to PPVs in the near future. I am pleased to inform that 83% of Bangsa Johor have successfully registered to receive the vaccine. To those who haven’t, I would like to urge you to sign up as soon as possible. Again, I would like to stress that if herd immunity can be achieved, then Johor’s economic recovery can begin.

I would like to thank the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, and the Ministry of Health Malaysia for their cooperation to expedite the vaccination programme in all districts in Johor.

Finally, I would like to thank all frontliners for their service and sacrifice in saving the lives of the rakyat. May Allah always protect and bless the frontliners. Allah Peliharakan Sultan.
