His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam has completed his vaccination regime for COVID-19 with the administration of a second dose, said the Ministry of Health (MoH) in a statement.

The MoH also urged Brunei citizens and residents to get vaccinated, as a preventive step against the continuing risk of the pandemic: “Getting the COVID-19 vaccine is the most effective measure to protect oneself, our families and society from the harmful effects of COVID-19.

“In the medium and long-term, as more people get vaccinated, the higher the level of immunity among this country’s population against the disease. This in turn will be able to reduce the impact of COVID-19 on public and community health.”
