State religious authorities should play a role by increasing awareness programs regarding the importance of taking the Covid-19 vaccine to the community.
Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin stressed that efforts to promote immunization should not be limited to the Federal and state governments alone, given that many in the general public still do not have accurate information on the need to vaccinate.
“I hope the public gets a clear explanation that the government’s decision on the vaccine issue is based on the decision of the 10th Special Meeting of the MKI Muzakarah Committee which convened on 3rd December 2020, that the law on the use of Covid-19 vaccine should and must be taken by the authorities.” He said in a post on his Facebook today.
Prime Minister hopes that religious authorities use all available platforms to publicize the National Covid-19 Immunization Program in addition to compliance with standard operating procedures (SOPs) that have been set
The meeting, which was held as a video conference, was attended by heads of state government as well as members appointed by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
