Malaysia will start giving vulnerable Sinovac vaccine recipients the Pfizer booster dose!
Here is what you need to know…
Earlier : Pfizer Booster Dose For Pfizer Vaccine Recipients Only!
On 13 October 2021, Malaysia started giving out the Pfizer booster dose for those who received the Pfizer vaccine more than 6 months earlier.
The Pfizer booster dose programme prioritised health and security frontliners, senior citizens who are 60 years and above, and individuals with co-morbidities.
Up till 19 October 2021, the Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) has administered the booster dose to 47,728 individuals.
Now : Pfizer Booster Dose For Sinovac Vaccine Recipients Too!
On 21 October 2021, KKM announced that they are expanding the booster dose programme to those who received the Sinovac vaccine more than 3 months ago.
For starters, the booster dose programme for Sinovac vaccine recipients will only be given to individuals who are 60 years or older.
This heterologous booster dose is an “off label” use, and will be monitored as part of the subgroup research under The Real World Evaluation of COVID-19 Vaccination (RECoVaM), and the SAFECOVAC study of adverse effects after vaccination.
This Pfizer booster dose will be given on a FREE and VOLUNTARY basis under the National COVID-19 Immunisation Program (PICK), starting Friday, 22 October 2021.
This booster dose will be administered by private medical practitioners in phases across Malaysia. Individuals who qualify for this booster dose will be informed through MySejahtera, or by SMS for those who do not have MySejahtera.
So if you are 60 years or older, and received your Sinovac vaccination more than 3 months ago, keep an eye out for your appointment!
