MEF: Employers urged to brief and encourage workers to take Covid-19 inoculationWednesday, 24 February 2021
Press Release
 

PETALING JAYA: MEF has urged employers to educate and encourage their employees on the benefits to be inoculated against Covid-19.

MEF President Dato’ Dr Syed Hussain Syed Husman J.P. said employers have an important role to assist the government to ensure the success of the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme so as to boost up confidence towards speedy economic recovery. 

“MEF thanks the government for promptly securing the vaccines for the rakyat as soon as the vaccines became available,” said Dato’ Dr Syed Hussain. 

“The key to success however, is in the execution of the plan whereby more than 80 per cent of people residing in Malaysia  are required to be vaccinated to establish ‘herd immunity’ in order for Malaysia to win the fight against Covid-19.” 

“As responsible employers, we should brief our staff on the benefits of the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme and we can count on getting support from the Ministry of Health if so required.” 

It is understood that users of the Android and iOS smart telephones are required to update their MySejahtera app to access the application form and to register for inoculation of the vaccine. 

Other than the MySejahtera app, registration for Covid-19 vaccination could be done via the soon to be established Covid-19 JKJAV website, or the Hotline phone number that the government will soon announce.

“MEF strongly advises all workers especially those who are provided with accommodation in hostels to be inoculated against Covid-19 and we are confident that employers will carry out the vaccination of workers as required by the government,” he added. 

For further information, contact the MEF Secretariat at 03-7955-7778 or fax 03-7955-9008 or email mef-hq@mef.org.my
