BERNAMA reported that due to the limited clinical data on the other Covid-19 vaccines available in Malaysia, AstraZeneca and Sinovac, are not advisable for the group in the meantime.

However, nursing mothers are expected to get a consultation from their doctors beforehand on the vaccination or even get the vaccine after childbirth, said Khairy.

“Only the Pfizer vaccine is allowed for pregnant women between week 14 and 33, or they should defer vaccination till after their pregnancy. The vaccine is also suitable for nursing mothers.”

“I have asked the Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) to coordinate with hospitals and the respective specialists to make arrangements so they are given priority to receive the Pfizer vaccine,” said the Science, Technology, and Innovation minister.

733,237 out of 1.2 million people have received both doses and 10.18 million Malaysians have registered to receive the Covid-19 vaccine so far, he added.
