The main theme for the National COVID-19 Immunization Programme is ‘Protect Yourself, Protect All’ (‘Lindungi Diri, Lindungi Semua’). It is to emphasize that protection for all Malaysians will only be achieved if we can vaccinate as many eligible individuals as possible. Hence, TRAPO would like to encourage everyone to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
