SHAH ALAM (Bernama): Selangor's Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah says his turn to receive a Colvid-19 vaccination will only come after all frontline workers, including teachers, have received their shots.
Istana Alam Shah, in a post on the Selangor Royal Office Facebook page Friday (Feb 26), said Sultan Sharafuddin had stressed that priority should be given to frontliners as they face a higher risk of infection.
The statement read that Sultan would continue to adhere to standard operating procedures (SOP) and stay home if there are no important matters until all frontline workers have received their vaccines.
"The Sultan calls on the people, especially those in Selangor, to get the Covid-19 vaccine as scheduled by the Health Ministry. He also urged them not to be influenced by anti-vaccine groups.
"Sultan Sharafuddin added that the government's efforts in providing the Covid-19 vaccine were in line with religious demands in protecting the health and well-being of the people," read the statement.
The Ruler also called on the people to embrace the new norms even after they have been immunised until the pandemic is fully controlled.
In KANGAR, Raja Muda of Perlis Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail urged the people in the state not to be influenced by inaccurate information and incitements over the Covid-19 vaccine.
"If in doubt, refer to the state Health Department," he said in a statement issued by the Perlis Islamic Religious Council and the Malay Customs (MAIPs). – Bernama
