KKM: Vaccine For Booster Dose Existing Is Sufficient, New Vaccine Is Still In The Procurement Process

 The Malaysian Ministry of Health has just held a press conference regarding the recent increase in the number of cases of the COVID-19 outbreak. Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad, Malaysia's Minister of Health advised the public to practice wearing a face mask and wash their hands especially when outside to reduce the risk of infection.

For those who have comorbid health problems and suffer from COVID-19, Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly also advises them to go to the health clinic to get Paxlovid medicine to reduce the risk of chronic pain due to the epidemic.

When asked about the supply of vaccine for the booster dose of COVID-19, Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly said that for now, the doses in the MOH inventory are sufficient to get the booster dose.

In fact, he further said that now, if Malaysians want to get the booster dose, they only need to go to the government Health Clinic to get it, although he did not give specific information about which locations have the booster dose.

Answering another question about the receipt of the updated Pfizer vaccine for the Omicron and Delta variants, Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly also said that the 2.7 million doses of the new vaccine (bivalent vaccine) are still in the procurement process and it is not yet known when it will arrive here.
