Johor wants out of pandemic
In the recent state assembly, Hasni said that vaccines are a “key component” for Johor’s exit strategy from the pandemic.
To make this a possibility, the state government targets to administer at least one dose of vaccine to 100% of its adult population by 16 September – and both doses by the third week of October.
From 1 March to Sep 5, it’s reported that the state has received more than 4.7 million doses of vaccines from the national immunisation programme – 2.4 Pfizer million doses, around 1.8 million Sinovac doses and around 410,000 AstraZeneca vaccines.
