Find out this means for the COVID-19 vaccination program in Malaysia!
Malaysia Approves AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine By SK Bioscience!
On 2 April 2021, the Malaysia Ministry of Health announced that the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by SK Bioscience received conditional approval.
- AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine Solution for Injection
Registrant : None (under COVAX Facility)
Manufacturer : SK Bioscience Co. Ltd., South Korea
This conditional approval would allow the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines manufactured by SK Bioscience to be used in the Malaysia COVID-19 vaccination program.
AstraZeneca Vaccine : Why Second Approval In Malaysia?
Unlike the earlier conditional approval of the AstraZeneca vaccine manufactured in the Netherlands, these AstraZeneca vaccines are manufactured by SK Bioscience in South Korea and provided through the COVAX Facility.
Therefore, there is no Product Registration Holder (PRH) for these SK Bioscience vaccines in Malaysia. The Malaysia Ministry of Health will instead appoint a licensed importer to manage the logistics.
The WHO had earlier issued an Emergency Use Listing (EUL) for this AstraZeneca-SK Biosience vaccine on 15 February 2021.
COVAX (COVID-19 Vaccines Global Access) is a global initiative to provide equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines.
The COVAX Facility is the platform by which this initiative purchases approved COVID-19 vaccines and distributes them to the developing world.
AstraZeneca Vaccine : A Quick Primer!
The AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, codenamed AZD1222, is a viral vector vaccine.
It uses a chimpanzee adenovirus – ChAdOx1 – which has been modified to prevent replication, to introduce a DNA sequence of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.
Once injected, the vaccine enters the cell and “teaches” it to produce the SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins and express them on its surface.
These spike proteins triggers the immune response to create antibodies that will protect you against the real SARS-CoV-2 virus.
