ALL Sinovac + Sinopharm Recipients MUST Get Booster Dose!

On 24 February 2022, Malaysia Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin announced that all adult recipients of the Sinovac vaccine must get a booster dose by 31 March 2022.

That was extended on 24 March 2022, to include individuals 18 years and older who were fully vaccinated with the Sinopharm vaccine.

Starting 1 April 2022, all adults who received the Sinovac and Sinopharm vaccine will lose their fully-vaccinated status, if they fail to get their booster dose.

Instead, they will receive a Partially Vaccinated status in their MySejahtera app.

What Booster Dose Is Best For Sinovac / Sinopharm Recipients?

The Malaysia Ministry of Health is offering four different booster doses for FREE.

The best booster dose you can receive is the Pfizer booster dose, followed by the AstraZeneca booster dose.

They are not only better vaccines (with higher efficacy), the mixing of vaccines (heterologous vaccination) will greatly increase protection against the coronavirus.

Heterologous vaccination is like learning different martial arts. By learning different ways to handle the coronavirus, your immune system is better able to beat COVID-19.

If you must have a Chinese vaccine (for travel and personal reasons), then opt for the CanSino vaccine.

They are also allowing you to walk-into the nearest PPV (COVID-19 vaccination centre) for your booster dose.

So take this opportunity to get a boost in your protection against COVID-19!
