KUALA LUMPUR,. Federal Court and Court of Appeal judges, led by Chief Justice Tun Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat, will receive their vaccine jabs on May 31.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Parliament and Law) Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan in a statement today, said his office was also arranging for all High Court and Sessions Court judges, and magistrates nationwide to be vaccinated with the cooperation of the state governments and respective health departments.
“The government has allocated a sufficient amount (of vaccines) to provide vaccination to all judges in the country.

It is hoped, he added, that administering the vaccines would help reduce their risk of exposure to COVID-19.
