Johor government is distributing vaccines for Malaysians who work in Singapore. Named the Johor Immunity Planning System (IMMUPlan), the vaccination operation will begin on Thursday (July 29).
According to an official statement, vaccination would be done at a major vaccination centre (PPV) within Johor. To ensure that workers on the frontline are protected, vaccinations will be done daily until all eligible economic frontliners are vaccinated, The Star reports.
The IMMUPlan programme scheduling will be done individually through the MySejahtera app. Eligible participants can also check the location, time, and date of the vaccination. People who registered for the programme should check the app for the respective schedule. A confirmation and reminder email would also be sent once your vaccination date and time had been confirmed, said the statement.
