Spread the love

The booster dose will be REQUIRED for Sinovac recipients, and the elderly, to maintain their fully-vaccinated status!

Here is what you need to know…


Booster Dose REQUIRED For Fully-Vaccinated Status

The WHO Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunisation (SAGE) has earlier recommended that these individuals should receive a booster dose to be considered fully-vaccinated :

  • ALL individuals who received two doses of the Sinovac or Sinopharm vaccines, and
  • Individuals 60 years and older who completed other COVID-19 vaccines,

The COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force – Booster (CITF-B) meeting on 8 December 2021 confirmed this suggestion.

Therefore, the Malaysia Ministry of Health announced on 16 December 2021, that all these individuals MUST receive a booster dose by end of February 2022, to be considered as fully-vaccinated.

  • Individuals who received two doses of the Sinovac vaccine, and
  • Individuals 60 years and older who completed other COVID-19 vaccines,

Those who do not meet these requirements by end of February 2022 will lose their “fully-vaccinated” status in MySejahtera.

They will only regain their fully-vaccinated status once they receive the booster dose.

Why Is A Booster Dose Required For Fully-Vaccinated Status?

As the Omicron variant has now been detected in Malaysia, the booster dose is of great importance.

Omicron has been shown to breakthrough two doses of COVID-19 vaccines, but a booster dose confers significantly improved protection.

In fact, it will be a matter of time before everyone else will be required to receive a booster dose, to be considered fully-vaccinated.

So please get your booster dose as soon as you are offered one. Check your MySejahtera app for your booster dose appointment!
