The Selangor state government is now offering FREE Sinovac vaccine booster doses under the Selvax programme!
Here is what you need to know!
Sinovac Booster By Selvax : FREE For Selangor Residents
On 8 December 2021, the Selangor state government started offering Sinovac booster doses under the Selvax programme.
These Sinovac booster doses are being administered at Selcare clinics all across the state, at no cost to Selangor residents.
The Sinovac booster dose programme appears to have kicked off with a bang – many people were spotted queuing outside a Selcare clinic.
Sinovac Booster Dose By Selvax : How To Get It FREE!
This free Sinovac booster dose offer is open to all Selangor residents who received two Sinovac doses earlier, even those who did not receive them under the Selvax programme.
However, only 157,000 Sinovac vaccine doses will be available as booster shots, which could explain the long queues on the first day.
By right, you should book your appointment through the Selangkah app. However, YB Elizabeth Wong said that the app is still “in the process” of allowing booking for the free Sinovac booster dose programme.
So the best way to get your free Sinovac booster dose is to CALL the nearest Selcare clinic for an appointment!
Please do NOT queue up like what happened yesterday!

Free Sinovac Booster Dose By Selvax : Good Intentions, Terrible Idea
While I am cognisant of the Selangor state government’s good intentions, I frankly believe that this is a terrible idea.
I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND that those who received two doses of the Sinovac vaccine should get the Pfizer or AstraZeneca vaccine as a booster dose instead.
The Sinovac CoronaVac has always been the least efficacious COVID-19 vaccine to be approved – at just over 50%.
On top of that, the recent RECoVaM study showed that the Sinovac vaccine’s protection against COVID-19 infections and hospitalisation drops dramatically after just 2 months!
That’s why CITF-B strongly recommended that Sinovac recipients take the Pfizer or AstraZeneca booster, and NOT a third dose of Sinovac.
In fact, Singapore considers people who took THREE doses of the Sinovac vaccine to be equivalent to those who took TWO doses of Pfizer / Moderna / AstraZeneca. It’s THAT bad.

Heterologous vaccination (mixing of vaccines) has already been tested in many countries and PROVEN to be safe and even more effective.
The only medical reason to take a third dose of the Sinovac vaccine is if you had an earlier allergic reaction to the Pfizer vaccine, and there is no other alternative available.
Malaysia is offering the AstraZeneca vaccine as an alternative to the Pfizer vaccine, and it is a far SUPERIOR vaccine to Sinovac. So if the Pfizer vaccine scares you too much (thank you, fake news!), then get the AstraZeneca vaccine instead.
I have personally advised all of my family and friends NOT to take the third dose of the Sinovac vaccine, and opt instead for the Pfizer or AstraZeneca vaccine for their booster dose.
The choice is yours. But please make that choice based on hard facts, and not fake news.
