KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 7 ― During today’s media briefing, Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin has revealed that 3.5 million individuals who were fully vaccinated with Sinovac vaccines have not yet received their boosters. It appears that these individuals are hesitant towards Pfizer or AstraZeneca for their boosters, and insist on getting Sinovac instead.

Khairy said the Ministry of Health believes that any booster is better than no booster. Therefore, the ministry will allow Sinovac recipients to book for Sinovac boosters soon. He said the full details for the Sinovac booster appointment will be revealed soon. The Sinovac vaccines will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis. The Ministry of Health is still recommending Pfizer boosters for Sinovac recipients as it offers a higher level of protection.

Booster required to maintain fully vaxxed status

The Ministry of Health has also reminded all senior citizens aged 60 years and above, as well as all adults (18 years old) who have received two doses of Sinovac vaccines to get their boosters as soon as possible to retain their fully vaccinated status. If they do not get their booster dose before March 1, 2022, they will lose their fully vaccinated status in MySejahtera.
