The prime minister was administered the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine today, 21 days after he had received his first dose on Feb 24 to roll out the National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme.

Muhyiddin arrived at the clinic at about 3pm and scanned his MySejahtera code, before he was taken to the vaccination room for registration and to receive his vaccine shot.

Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah also received his second vaccine jab today.

After receiving his second jab, Muhyiddin updated the MySejahtera app to show that he had completed his COVID-19 vaccine dosage.
