What are we getting again?
Malaysia has secured 66.7 million doses of five different Covid-19 vaccines for the NIP;
How do they work?
There are three main types of Covid-19 vaccines whose effectiveness depends on a number of factors. The World Health Organisation (WHO) prescribes that the minimum level of efficiency for vaccines is 50% while the NPRA assured Malaysians that approved vaccines are safe for use.
When is it my turn?
The Covid-19 vaccines will be given out in three-phases beginning with phase one in February.
