The only people who are eligible to get vaccinated now are adolescents from the age of 12 to 17 and adults from 18 years old onwards.

In a tweet, the Minister of Health, Khairy Jamaluddin announced that one more group of people will be getting vaccinated in the future.

In his tweet, he has talked about the vaccination rate of adolescents according to data from COVID Now.

“82.4% of our adolescents partially vaccinated. 62% fully vaccinated. This will mean #ReopeningSchools safely.”

However, this is only applicable to adolescents and children below the age of 12 who are still susceptible to contracting Covid-19. After monitoring clinical trials and heeding the recommendation of the FDA, the ministry has made the decision to procure the Pfizer vaccines for children ages five to 12.

“With FDA panel recommending Pfizer jab for 5-12 yo, Malaysia will go forward with our procurement of Pfizer for kids. We will also look at other options like Sinovac.”

Pfizer For Children

According to COVID Now, as of 27 Oct 2021, 11:59 pm, 94.9% of adults are fully vaccinated while 97.6% have at least one shot of the vaccine. 2.4% of the adult population remains unvaccinated. As for the total population, 74% are fully vaccinated, 77.9% are partially vaccinated and 22.1% are unvaccinated.

This is certainly good news to parents out there. We hope that the children will be vaccinated before the next school year starts so that they can attend school physically!
