Malaysia To Start Vaccinating 5-11 Yo Children This Month!
On 16 January 2022, the Malaysia Minister of Health, Khairy Jamaluddin, said that the COVID-19 vaccination programme for children 5 to 11 years of age will begin at the end of the month.
It cannot come sooner as the new 2022 academic year is slated to begin in March 2022.
Pfizer Vaccine For 5-11 Yo Children In Malaysia : Should You Take It?
The Pfizer paediatric vaccine for 5-11 year old children uses a much lower dose of the vaccine – just 10 micrograms – ⅓ of the dose used for adults and adolescents, but continues to use the same 21-day dose interval.
It was shown in a Pfizer study involving over 2,200 children, to be both very safe and 90.7% efficacious in preventing COVID-19 infections.
So yes, I definitely advise you to vaccinate your children against COVID-19, preferably before they start the new academic year.
Can You Start Registering 5-11 Yo Children For COVID-19 Vaccine?
Unfortunately, MySejahtera still does not allow you to register your 5-11 year-old children for COVID-19 vaccination.
While there is a way to bypass the MySejahtera check, and register your children anyway, their registration might be invalidated later.
