High-Risk Individuals Can Get SECOND Booster Dose!

High-risk individuals in Malaysia will be offered a second booster dose, to improve their protection against COVID-19!

Here is what you need to know…


Second Booster Dose Offered To High-Risk Individuals!

The Malaysia Ministry of Health will offer a second booster dose to high-risk individuals, to improve their protection against COVID-19!

The second booster dose will be the Pfizer COMIRNATY vaccine, and it will be given :

This second booster dose is optional, and is not compulsory. Your vaccination status will not change, whether you take the second booster dose or not.

Why Second Booster Dose For High-Risk Individuals?

High-risk individuals, namely senior citizens with co-morbidities, are at a much higher risk of developing severe COVID-19.

Even though COVID-19 vaccines offer great protection against hospitalisation and death, their protection wanes over time. With the Omicron variant raging around the globe, and new variants coming up, it is important to boost their protection.

This is particularly important for those who received the Sinovac and Sinopharm vaccines. Both Chinese vaccines offer markedly lower protection, which quickly wane over a matter of weeks.

A Yale University study, for example, showed that Sinovac vaccine recipients will require TWO Pfizer doses, to adequately protect against the Omicron variant.

Therefore, if you are offered the second booster dose, I would highly recommend you take it. Even more so if you received the Sinovac / Sinopharm vaccine earlier.

There is also a more practical consideration for people travelling overseas – some countries in Europe do not recognise the Sinovac and Sinopharm vaccines.

Therefore, they will be allowed to obtain a second booster dose, at least one month after receiving their first booster dose.
