MEF urges employers to support immunisati­on program


KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF) called upon private sector employers to continue to support the government’s efforts to stop the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic by encouragin­g their employees to be vaccinated.

The federation also urged the employers to strictly adhere to the establishe­d standard operating procedures.

“Let us support the government efforts and together we make the National Covid19 Immunisati­on Programme a success,” MEF president Datuk Dr Syed Hussain Syed Husman said in a statement yesterday.

The National Covid-19 Immunisati­on Programme, which began on Feb 24, will undergo three phases up to February 2022 with a target of vaccinatin­g about 80 per cent of the local and foreign residents to establish ‘herd immunity’.

MEF said Malaysia stood a better chance at resuming normal life and to return to business as usual with the arrival of the Covid-19 vaccines.
