Johor Ruler, royal family receive Covid-19 vaccination

JOHOR BARU: Johor’s Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar together with Permaisuri Johor Raja Zarith Sofiah binti Almarhum Sultan Idris Shah and the royal family have received their Covid-19 vaccination.

His Majesty advised the people not to hesitate to get vaccinated and to curb the spread of the pandemic.

“My family and I have received the vaccine and we really hope that the people of Johor will not hesitate to get the vaccine in order to take care and protect themselves and their families.

"Her Majesty and I are in good health after receiving the vaccine, Alhamdulillah we also have no side effects," said Sultan Ibrahim in a statement posted on His Majesty’s official Facebook page here on Saturday (June 19).

In addition to following all the advice and standard operating procedures (SOPs) from the Health Ministry, Sultan Ibrahim also added that vaccination was also very important to reduce the rate of Covid-19 infection and achieve herd immunity.

"Apart from protecting ourselves, we also need to think about the frontliners, doctors, nurses and medical teams who are working hard to treat Covid-19 patients.

“The more people who receive the vaccine, the closer we are to herd immunity and reduce the adverse effects of the disease on our daily lives.

"Therefore, register for the vaccine and make sure you and your family members always check and meet the MySejahtera appointment," His Majesty added.
