Malaysia Approves CanSino Vaccine Booster Dose!

On 6 January 2021, the Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) announced that the Drug Control Authority (DCA) has agreed to conditionally approve the CanSino Convidecia vaccine as a booster dose!

  1. Convidecia Recombinant Novel Coronavirus Vaccine (Adenovirus Type 5 Vector)
    Registrant : Solution Biologics Sdn. Bhd.
    Manufacturer : CanSino Biologics Inc, China

The CanSino Convidecia booster dose is now allowed to be given to individuals 18 years and older, after 3 to 6 months from getting the single-dose vaccine.

 

CanSino Convidecia Booster Dose : A Quick Primer

The CanSino Convidecia vaccine works similarly to other viral vector vaccines, like the AstraZeneca AZD1222 and Gamaleya Sputnik V vaccines.

It uses a modified Ad5 virus containing the DNA instructions for the SARS-CoV-2 protein spike, which are then created by your own cells and presented on their surfaces.

These “foreign” protein spikes triggers the body’s immune system, which then makes antigens to target these spikes.

The Convidecia is a single-dose vaccine, so its booster dose is its “second” dose. It works by triggering the immune system a second time, greatly boosting the amount of antibodies.
