ByDouglas Elliot

KUCHING, 26 Sept: Sarawak will be the first state to administer the booster shots.

Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said emphasis will be given to high-risk group aged 60 years and above with serious comorbidities – reiterating that shots are not meant for everyone.

“The booster shots programme will be administered starting in October once we fine-tuned the clinical guideline,” Khairy said during a press conference after a special meeting with Sarawak State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) at Wisma Bapa here, today.

He added, the types of vaccines to be administered for the third dose – be it the same type of vaccine received as the first-two dose or otherwise – are still being studied.
