Johor allocates RM40mil to buy vaccines


Johor has allocated RM40 million for the purchase of Covid-19 vaccines to enable the people in the state to get vaccinated, becoming the second state to embark on getting its own vaccine.

Johor menteri besar Hasni Mohammad said the allocation under the Johor Ihsan economic stimulus package 3.0 had been proposed earlier together with the cooperation of Kumpulan Perubatan Johor (KPJ).

Hasni said the state government would also be buying 190,000 RTK-antigen test kits to support targeted screening efforts, with the initiative to be carried out with the management services division of the state secretary’s office and Johor health department.

The targeted screening is also supported by the city councils of Johor Bahru (MBJB), Iskandar Puteri (MBIP) and Pasir Gudang (MBPG), which will be buying the test kits to benefit almost 60,000 people
