We need to achieve herd immunity, says minister

The public is urged to get vaccinated to protect those who cannot be administered with the COVID-19 vaccine, including those under 18. “To obtain herd immunity, this will require 70 per cent of the population to be vaccinated,” said Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar during a working visit to Indoor Stadium on Thursday as it prepared to be used as a COVID-19 vaccination centre for Brunei-Muara District.
