- Bernama

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin went on Facebook Thursday (Feb 25) to provide an update on his health a day after receiving the Covid-19 vaccine.

"Everything is going well, I believe this is a safe, effective vaccine. So, many of you would like to know about my health condition today. Alhamdulillah, I feel healthy, there's no fever, nothing out of the ordinary. I'm eating as usual and my appetite is also normal," he said while expressing his gratitude.

Muhyiddin was the first individual in the country to receive the first dose of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine Thursday.

Among others who received the jab were Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah and four Health Ministry staff from the Putrajaya Health Office in Precinct 11.

Meanwhile, the Prime Minister said he had also received an appointment for the second dose of the vaccine on March 17.

Muhyiddin said as a vaccine recipient, he also received information on the vaccine through the MySejahtera app on his mobile phone.

"That is why I urge once again for all to play their respective roles in supporting the efforts of the government and country for us to flatten the Covid-19 curve by registering ourselves to receive the injection, through the MySejahtera app," he said.

Meanwhile, Muhyiddin called on the public to continue complying with the standard operating procedures (SOP) set even after receiving the vaccine.

"Wear a face mask, wash our hands as usual, observe physical distancing and do not go to crowded spaces – these we should continue to do even after we've been vaccinated," he said.

Meanwhile, Dr Noor Hisham replied to Bernama on his experience.

"I am feeling good too, no side effects, no fever or pain. Already reported to the MySejahtera app," he said.

He also shared a screenshot of his MySejahtera app where he had updated his health status. – Bernama
