PETALING JAYA: A leading pharmaceutical company which supplies the Sinovac Covid-19 vaccine has called on the government to clear the air over the drug following claims linking it to breakthrough deaths.

Pharmaniaga Bhd said it was important for the authorities to provide a “solid explanation” as soon as possible to allay public fears as well as on the safety and efficacy of the vaccine.

“(Otherwise) it could disrupt the government’s upcoming mission to vaccinate children aged between 12 and 17,” its group managing director Zulkarnain Md Eusope said in a statement today.

Earlier today, health director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said the country would be vaccinating teenagers in mid-September, involving those aged 12 to 15 who have comorbidities and those aged 16 to 17 with or without health conditions.
