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.
This comes after Malaysia conditionally approved the new Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children on 6 January 2022.
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.
