JOHOR BARU: The Johor Baru City Council (MBJB) has denied issuing a vaccine registration form for a special TMJ (Tunku Mahkota Johor Tunku Ismail Ibni Sultan Ibrahim) quota.
"The MBJB would like to clarify that the message that has gone viral about a 'Pfizer vaccine, TMJ quota' was fake,” it said.
It added that the form circulating online was a form that was used by the Southern Volunteers secretariat to help register people in Johor Baru who had yet to register for the vaccine either through MySejahtera or the Special Committee on Covid-19 Vaccine Supply (JKJAV) website.
In a statement on Friday (July 23), the MBJB also denied claims that those registering for the vaccine through the Southern Volunteers form would be given priority when receiving the vaccine compared to those who register on their own through MySejahtera or the JKJAV website.
"In an effort to have more than 80% of Johor's population registered for the vaccine, the Johor Baru Southern Volunteers and MBJB have registered a total of 30,008 people in Johor Baru as of July 22," it added.
MBJB also urged the public to check information they see online with the relevant authorities' official website or social media site.
"We urge the public to refer to information provided on Covid-19 through official channels such as the JKJAV, the Health Ministry, the National Security Council, Southern Volunteers and MBJB.
"Do not share any information that they are unsure of as this could create confusion and misinformation," it added.
