He advised Penangites to maintain standard operating procedures in order to safeguard themselves.

Some time (soon), we expect the Health Ministry to announce a shortened time-frame between taking the second dose (of Covid-19 vaccine) and the booster jab.

This means people can start getting their booster shots by then and we hope everyone will start monitoring their MySejahtera for their appointments," he added.
