KUALA LUMPUR: Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah has reminded those who have not been vaccinated against Covid-19 to get it done immediately.

His Majesty said this included getting a booster dose, to ensure the country could control the Covid-19 pandemic.

"The country is still not free from the pandemic, so let us all abide by the guidelines and regulations as part of efforts to combat Covid-19 that have been outlined by the government,” he said at the investiture of Federal Territories awards, medals, and honours in conjunction with Federal Territory Day 2022 at Istana Negara here on Tuesday (Feb 8).

Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Hajah Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah was also in attendance.

His Majesty conferred awards, honours and medals on 263 recipients at the ceremony.

He also said Malaysians should continue strengthening unity and avoid division.

"The foundation of a nation's strength is the bond and the spirit of unity and equality in upholding the principles of Rukun Negara to ensure that the country’s sovereignty continues to be safeguarded,” he said. – Bernama
