Vaccination for teens has been ongoing in the other parts of the world but as of now in Malaysia, teens will not be able to get any appointments for vaccination.

While vaccine registration has been approved for teens and children above the age of 12 and CITF has said that they have received registrations from minors of this age group through MySejahtera, they will NOT be getting any appointments for vaccination.

The reason for this is that they would like to avoid any risks of myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (inflammation of the pericardium, the fibrous sac surrounding the heart) as was shown in an American study.

According to Astro Awani, students who have reached the age of 18, for example, those who are taking STPM or STAM this year, will be getting their vaccination appointments. However, students who are taking SPM will not have their vaccination appointment as they are 17 years old. But if these students have reached 18 years old, they will receive their appointments.

For those below 18, MySejahtera is still open for registrations for vaccination so that it can be used in the future if there is any changes or updates.

As of now, the main aim is to fulfil Phase 2 of the National Immunisation Programme and to stabilise Phase 3 across the nation.

What do you think about this? Let us know in the comments.
