Malaysia: Single Dose Vaccine May Be Used For Interior Area

After rolling out the Covid-19 vaccination program yesterday by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, netizens asked about the possibility of single-dose vaccination for rural areas. 

Khairy Jamaluddin, the Science, Technology and Innovation Minister tweeted that single-dose vaccine will be considered in rural areas, especially for the migrants. 

Khairy also mentioned that his ministry would be considering both Johnson & Johnson and CanSinoBIO (China) for the vaccination. However, Johnson & Johnson vaccine was not listed in the vaccination program yesterday.

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine had 66% efficacy at reducing severe and moderate cases of COVID-19, which include either two mild symptoms or one more severe symptom, such as low blood oxygen levels or increased respiratory rate, Live Science previously reported. In other words, people vaccinated with the J&J shot were three times less likely to get a mild or moderate case of COVID-19.

China's first single-shot vaccine developed by CanSino Biologics Inc. (CanSinoBIO), recorded an efficacy of 74.8 per cent in phase-3 trials in Pakistan.
