[Latest] PM Muhyiddin, Health DG Noor Hisham Vaccinated! #en

(Putrajaya, February 24) Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has just been vaccinated at the Putrajaya Health Clinic in Precinct 11 around 2:30pm today, ahead of the initial schedule of Feb 26. Also taking the vaccine alongside the PM was Director-General of Health Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

Before taking the jab, Muhyiddin was seen going through an oral evaluation, after which he was required to sign on a consent form acknowledging that he has understood and agreed to the terms.

The entire vaccination process took around 15 to 30 minutes, including recipients’ monitoring process. Both are expected to receive the second dose three weeks later, as the Pfizer-BioNTech in Malaysia will be taken in 2 doses, 21 days apart.

Four other staff of the Health Ministry also joined Muhyiddin and Dr Noor Hisham to be vaccinated.

Today is also the kick off of the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme, the largest vaccination programme ever in Malaysia to-date.

Muhyiddin has officially launched the vaccination registration over the MySejahtera application. He urged Malaysians to register for the vaccine and show up for appointments to receive both doses.

According to the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme Handbook, as at February this year Malaysia has secured procurement of 66.7 million doses of vaccines through the COVAX Facility from five producers – Pfizer-BioNTech, AstraZeneca, Sinovac, CanSinoBIO and Sputnik V.

The first batch of 312,390 Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine doses arrived safely in Malaysia on Feb 21 (Sunday), enough to vaccinate 156,195 people.

The second batch of the same vaccine, comprising an additional 182,520 doses, is expected to arrive today (Feb 24) for distribution to states that have yet to receive the vaccine, said Coordinating Minister for National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme Khairy Jamaluddin.

Vaccination will be provided free-of-charge to those living in Malaysia, including non-citizens, under the Immunisation Programme in 3 phases, targeting to vaccinate 80% of the country’s population:

Phase 1: Feb 24 – Apr 2021
500,000 healthcare frontliners and essential workers are expected to be vaccinated first.

Phase 2: Apr – Aug 2021
9.4 million senior citizens aged 60 and above, high risk groups, as well as persons with disabilities, will be prioritized to receive the vaccine in this phase.

Phase 3: May 2021 – Feb 2022
13.7 million or more doses will be covered, involving both Malaysians and non-Malaysians aged 18 years old and above.

Malaysians will not be given a choice as to which vaccine to be administered, as announced by Khairy previously, who is also a Science, Technology and Innovation Minister.

Children will not be vaccinated yet as none of the current vaccines has been clinically approved for those under 18.

MOH has identified and prepared 600 vaccination stations nationwide, including health clinics, government hospitals, and private hospitals, aiming to vaccinate up to 126,000 individuals a day.

7 officers conducting the inoculations will be placed at each of the vaccination station, said Health Minister Dr Adham Baba.

In addition, the first batch of China’s Sinovac Covid-19 vaccine is expected to arrive in Malaysia on February 27, said Khairy.

However, he mentioned that the Sinovac vaccine has not been registered by the National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency (NPRA) yet, as it is still pending approval.

农历新年9个禁忌 这些事千万不能做!#zh

农历新年是华人最重要的大日子。大家习惯在过年前来个大扫除,清理家中杂物,除旧迎新;还会一家人整整齐齐地吃团年饭,行年宵等。这些都是家家户户在农历新年时会跟随的习俗。但传统上还有许多大大小小的过年禁忌 – 就让我们来个温馨提示,让你避开这些事,今年一整年都有好运气!

1. 忌向正在睡觉的人拜年

若对方还在睡梦中的话,千万不要跟对方拜年,这样会让对方一整年都卧在病床上。

2. 白天不可午睡

古训有谓「禁昼寝」就是劝人不要懒散。在大年初一睡午觉会影响事业运。

3. 忌催人起床

要注意哦!大年初一不要叫他人的全名催人起床,否则这样会让对方一整年都被别人催促做事。

4. 初一忌洗头

大年初一洗头发会把财富与财运洗掉呢!

5. 忌争吵、诅咒或责骂他人

就算是小孩子在这段期间做错了事,也不可责打,因为这将会为新的一年招来恶运。如果小孩说漏嘴,大人总会接“童言无忌”。

6. 女儿回娘家忌送单数回门礼

出嫁的女儿回娘家拜年的时候不要送单数的回门礼,全因单数不吉利;所以女婿带回娘家的礼物必需成双成对。

7. 忌讳向人讨债

不管是被要债或是向人讨债,双方一整年都会很衰很倒楣。

8. 初一忌洒水、扫地与倒垃圾

传统认为​​每家每户都藏有福气和财运。如果初一洒水、扫地或倒垃圾都会将财神爷送走,亦会扫走财富与好运。

9. 忌打破东西

将所有易碎的杯杯碟碟、装饰品、瓷器等物品小心摆放。家里有小孩子和宠物的话就更要小心注意,因为打破东西会破财破运。若真不小心打破了就要用红色的纸包起来,然后默念「岁岁平安」(取其谐音)的吉祥语。

9 CNY Taboos – Do NOT Make These Mistakes! #en

Chinese New Year is the most important celebration for Chinese people. We’re all familiar with the ‘spring cleaning’ that is always done before CNY begins. Removing any unnecessary clutter from the house and welcoming the new.

There are many more CNY taboos, both big and small, that have been around for the longest time. Now, let us give you a reminder of what to avoid to ensure you remain lucky throughout the year!

1. Do NOT Greet People Who Are Still Sleeping
If the other person you want to greet is asleep, do NOT greet them with CNY wishes. Otherwise, they may fall ill and constantly need to rest in bed for the entire year.

2. No Naps During The Day
The saying of no naps during the day is believed to persuade people to not be lazy. As such, it is said that taking a nap on the first day of the New Year will severely affect your career luck.

3. Avoid Waking Others
Be Careful! On the first day of CNY, do NOT wake others up by their FULL NAME. Otherwise, they will constantly be bothered about tasks/chores all year long.

4. No Washing Your Hair On The First Day
Washing your hair on New Year’s Day will wash away both your wealth and fortune.

5. Avoid Arguing, Cursing and Scolding Others
Even if it’s a child making a mistake, he/she can’t be scolded or blamed – otherwise this will bring bad luck to the new year. Adults often say “童言无忌” (Tóng Yán Wú Jì), “Take no offense to a child’s babbles” when a child says something wrong.

6. Do NOT Give An Odd Number Of Gifts
When a married daughter returns to her family for the New Year, the husband shall not offer an odd number of homecoming gifts. Odd numbers are perceived as unlucky, so the gifts brought by the son-in-law should always be in pairs.

7. Anything Related to Debts Is A Major NO
Whether it’s owing someone a debt, or collecting a debt from someone, both are taboos as both parties will end up having a bad and unhappy year ahead.

8. Avoid Cleaning The House
The belief is that every household is filled with blessings and wealth. If you mop, sweep, or take out the trash on the first day of CNY, the God of Wealth will be sent away.

9. Do NOT Break Objects
Place all your fragile objects, from cups to vases, to somewhere safer – especially if you have children or pets at home – because breaking objects will hurt your wealth. If something is broken by accident, wrap the object in red paper and silently recite the auspicious words “岁岁平安” (Suì Suì Píng Ān).
