Penangites are being urged to keep an eye on their MySejahtera app after announcing a shorter wait time between Covid-19 booster doses.

Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said that the Health Ministry is likely to declare the subject next week.

This means people can start taking their booster by then, and we hope everyone will monitor their MySejahtera app for the appointment of their booster shots.

After the jabs, it only means we have better protection and does not guarantee immunity. We can still be infected if we are not careful.

I hope everyone will continue adhering to the SOP diligently even after the booster shots,” he said.

Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin had said that a shorter period for Covid-19 booster doses would be issued next week in response to public concern over the Omicron variant.

He said this would result in a shorter time interval between the second and third doses of the Covid-19 vaccine, noting that the government has discovered 62 Omicron cases as of Saturday.

Those who got the Sinovac vaccination are now recommended to take booster injections 90 days after the first dose. In comparison, those who received the Pfizer or AstraZeneca vaccines are advised to receive a third dose 180 days after the second dose.

The decision to reduce the gap is consistent with other countries like Germany and Australia, which have recommended shorter booster intervals to halt the spread of new variants.

Chow previously said that the state had identified two Covid-19 Omicron variant cases in two individuals returning from Saudi Arabia after umrah.

Following their arrival at the KLIA, the patients have been quarantined to the Kepala Batas Hospital for further evaluation.

Chow said that contact tracing had already been conducted and that there were no new cases as of Monday.

We will take the necessary measures to ensure this variant does not spread among the community,” he said.
