MOH Leaning Towards Using Sinovac And AstraZeneca Vaccine As Booster Dose Says Khairy

According to its minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, the Health Ministry (MOH) is contemplating administering the Sinovac and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine as a booster dose.

He said that the issue was being reviewed by the Drug Control Authority (DCA) during a meeting presided over by Health Director-General Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

“Among the agenda of this meeting is to consider the Sinovac and AstraZeneca vaccine as a booster dose and when the DCA made their decision, I will announce our policy,” he stated as he concluded today’s policy discussion on the Supply Bill 2022 in the Dewan Rakyat.

He stated this in response to a question from Dr Kelvin Yii Lee Wuen (PH-Bandar Kuching), who requested to know whether the government planned to allow the Sinovac vaccine to be administered as a booster dose, particularly to people who had previously received the same brand of vaccination.
