All Sinovac Recipients And Senior Citizens Must Get Boosters By February Or Risk Vaccination Status Says Khairy and MOH

Senior adults over the age of 60 and those who have already received two doses of the Sinovac Covid-19 vaccination will need to have received a third booster injection by February 2022, the health ministry stated today.

Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said in a statement that this was in accordance with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recommendation through its Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunisation, or SAGE.

“This proposal was confirmed by the Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force – Booster on Dec 8,” he said.

“Accordingly, individuals in the aforementioned groups – those who have been fully vaccinated with Sinovac or individuals aged 60 and above, regardless of which vaccine they were initially given – must obtain a booster shot by February 2022 at the latest.

“If they have not received their booster shots by February 2022, their vaccination status will be changed to incomplete, and they will not be eligible for the facilities accorded to those who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.”
