After meeting with TMJ, 216 Johor teachers agree to be vaccinated

JOHOR BARU (Bernama): The recent meeting and briefing session with Tunku Mahkota of Johor Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim has "opened the eyes" of some teachers and convinced them to get vaccinated against Covid-19 after they previously rejected the inoculation.

State education, information, heritage and culture committee chairman Mazlan Bujang said out of 779 teachers, 216 had agreed to receive the vaccine after hearing experiences and explanations from Tunku Ismail himself.

“The number of teachers who reject the vaccine is decreasing. We will continue providing information to them.

"I would like to thank the Tunku Mahkota of Johor for meeting with the teachers,” he told reporters after inspecting the vaccination process at SMK Taman Daya here on Monday (Sept 20).

Mazlan said the majority of the remaining 563 teachers had opted not to be vaccinated due to health problems and pregnancies.

He said teachers who rejected the vaccine without health reasons made up less than one percent of the total of about 48,000 teachers in Johor. – Bernama
